Actress Katherine Heigl, Last Chance For Animals, and The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation have announced that they are taking in and rehabilitating England, the pit bull hogtied and left for dead in Bakersfield, California last month.

  2. That was a horrid story but glad they've (almost?) nailed the sick, twisted deviant behind such torturous treatment of England. Hail to Heigl and her foundation for stepping up and speaking out so publicly about England and his rehabilitation. Brava!

  8. Good for Katherine Heigl for shedding some of her star shine on important messages such as this (the message being "people who hurt animals need to take responsibility for their actions," "pitties are lovely" & "rescues deserve a 2nd chance").

    On the Rescues Deserve a 2nd Chance topic:

    This is *just* what the cause needs: Every single one of us who believes that rescues deserve a second chance & that rescues are basically da bomb just have to keep on saying it over and over and over again. As long as we keep repeating ourselves pretty soon our neighbours, friends, coworkers, family... EVERYone who wants a pet will say, "Honey? You know how we've been talking about getting a dog? I think it's time to go to the shelter/rescue and give a pooch a forever home." They will head to a rescue and won't even *think* of going to a pet store or looking online.

    We just have to keep repeating ourselves. So yeah to Heigl for adding her voice! :)

  9. What a great ending to that chapter in England's life! Now he's on to a much better life. He might even have the chance to be an ambassador in a way nobody ever expected as a high profile adoption! Good for him!

  11. This is wonderful! She speak so well for rescues and for breeds that are 'band' like the pitties. We cannot give up on these animals just because they had a horrible start in life.

  12. Your blog makes me sad when I read about all the horrible things people do to animals. But then it makes me happy again to see that the animals are being cared for and are in a better place now.

  13. I hope this makes everyone forgive Katherine Heigl for that "Grey's Anatomy" nonsense.
