Katherine and Nancy visited
Villalobos Rescue Center (VRC) in Canyon Country, California
on Sunday November 9th. The center is a rescue, rehabilitation
and placement facility for abused and abandoned Pit Bulls and is
home to around 200 animals. The Heigl's are very passionate
about animal welfare and as avid dog lovers lend their support
to a number of rescue centers and sanctuaries.
On Sunday during their
tour of the facility, which is the largest Pit Bull rescue
center in the United States, Katherine and her mother got the
chance to meet many of the animals that are cared for on the 10
acre site. The
sanctuary is also home to wolves, raccoons, bears, panthers
and a tiger.
