On September 23rd, 2010, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, Katherine Heigl, accompanied by the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation Board, kicked off a major companion pet initiative - The Compassion Revolution. Its broad mission to unite diverse groups and individuals under one alliance to initiate programs that will directly address the pet overpopulation crisis in the Los Angeles area, and to set a precedent for similar programs across the United States.

To launch the Compassion Revolution, the Heigl Foundation announced a $1 million pledge for spay/neuter and supporting programs in the City and County of Los Angeles and neighboring communities.

Katherine introduced the Compassion Revolution, with the support of the Found Animals Foundation and the Millan Foundation, represented by speaker Cesar Millan.

The most practical and immediate means of tackling the pet population crisis is through spay/neuter programs that are accessible and affordable to all pet owners, along with providing the necessary tools to promote responsible pet ownership, including information and training. Katherine called for City and County officials, local businesses, residents, animal advocates and shelter management and staff, to come together, not only to implement effective programs, but to support an entirely new paradigm to better the lives of companion pets and to create a consensus which rejects killing as a method of achieving results.
