Katherine & Nancy Visit Animal Rescue Center
Katherine and Nancy visited the 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.

The VRC works ceaselessly to give Pit Bulls another chance in life. Each and every dog taken in, gets spayed or neutered and is given any medical treatment necessary. The organisation then works patiently with animals to reacclimatize fearful dogs to the loving care of a human, so that they may eventually be adopted.

Katherine and Nancy are committed to raising awareness and support for the plight of these animals and if you would like to find out more information on how you can help, please visit the Villalobos Rescue Center website.
