The Best Friends Animal Society "Pup My Ride" rescue program saves at-risk, small-breed dogs from Los Angeles shelters by transporting them to communities where the demand for small dogs is high but the supply is low.
Every two weeks between 20 and 30 pups are rescued and transported to Utah, in a unique partnership between Best Friends and the Humane Society Of Utah. The journey is made possible by the generosity of the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, which was founded by Katherine and her mom Nancy and provides financial assistance to both rescue and transport the dogs to their new home.

The movie Killers with Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher is being released June 4 do you get to show your funny side?
Yes, I get to play Katherine Heigl’s father, but I’m not just playing a dad. It’s quite interesting and complex and there are a lot of twists and turns. It’s a romantic / action / adventure film. I’m looking forward to seeing it.
Do you have a big role?
It is, I think. They put me in the trailer. [Laughs] We shot for 10 days in the south of France – that was kind of neat. And it was fun working with Ashton and Katherine.

Katherine Heigl told reporters at the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation and Last Chance For Animals press conference in Los Angeles yesterday that "We really want to open people’s eyes to be more compassionate, to be more aware, and helping us make sure this kind of thing doesn’t happen again."
She was referring to the harrowing case of a pit bull that was hog-tied and left to die in south Bakersfield about a week ago. Authorities arrested 52 year old James Worley last week on a felony charge of animal cruelty. He’s accused of torturing the pit bull and leaving it for dead.
