The list of celeb-u-tards who are also Peta spokes-wanks is so long that even the scientologists are jealous, which is what makes Katherine Heigl’s news announcement so fantastic.
Instead of jumping on SpaceShip Peta, where killing pets equals saving them, Katherine has stepped up and donated $1 million dollars to no kill shelters, and to low cost spay/neuter programs.
The star of Warner Bros.’ upcoming film “Life As We Know It” is kicking off a pet initiative to increase awareness and help curb the pet population crisis. Each year 500,000 animals without homes are sheltered and euthanized in California, costing the state $250 million.
“What’s happening is not only inhumane and morally reprehensible, it’s economically irresponsible,” Heigl said. “Killing is not a solution.”
The project is in association with the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, which was named after her brother who was killed in a car accident 24 years ago.
In addition to the contribution to spay and neuter programs, the JDHF will continue to support Learn to be a Best Friend (a training and education obedience program); transport programs moving animals from local shelters where they would be euthanized to humane societies, rescue organizations and “no kill” shelters; and continue to promote pet adoption.
Cesar Millan of National Geographic Channel’s “The Dog Whisperer” joined Heigl in the announcement.
“I think we have to work a little harder and call ourselves a dog lover country,” he said.
