Wellington, FL, April 14, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Online Luxury Pet Store Pretentious Puppy Boutique has partnered with The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation to help raise funds. The fundraising campaign has been launched by both Pretentious Puppy Boutique as well as The Jason Heigl Foundation as of the beginning of April 2012. As people continue to support The Jason Heigl Foundation they can help raise additional funds for the organization when making a purchase on the Pretentious Puppy Boutique website. For each purchase that is made at the online Boutique, a portion of the profits will be donated to charity. "It is such an honor to be partnering with The Jason Heigl Foundation," said Paul Stern CEO of Pretentious Puppy Boutique. The money raised by the charity not only goes to maintain an internal rescue group, the Heigl Hounds Of Hope, that is focused on finding homes for medium to large dogs from high kill shelters. Additionally The Jason Heigl Foundation assists shelter and rescue animals by financing medical treatment and veterinary care.
About The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation
The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation was founded in 2008, by Nancy and Katherine Heigl. The Heigl's desire to end cruelty and abuse inspired them to create an organization dedicated to animal welfare that would celebrate the compassion, kindness and memory of a beloved son and brother.
On September 23rd 1986, Jason was in a tragic car accident and suffered massive brain damage while returning to New Canaan High School with three friends. He died one week later in Norwalk Hospital and the family decided to donate all his organs to help others live. He was 15 years old.
Throughout his brief lifetime Jason loved all animals, especially dogs, cats and monkeys and he lived his life extending compassion and kindness to all creatures great and small. The Foundation is his legacy.
The goal of the JDHF is to eliminate the needless suffering inflicted on animals by human cruelty, indifference and ignorance.
Dedicated to animal advocacy, the focus of the Heigl Foundation is to:
Work directly to address the pet population crisis.
Increase awareness of the inhumane treatment of animals.
Support non-profit animal rescue and advocacy organizations in their efforts to save shelter animals.
Assist homeless shelter and rescue animals by financing medical treatment and veterinary care.
Fund and encourage free spay / neuter programs and clinics.
Place rescue dogs and cats in loving homes.
Provide safe havens for animals that have been abused or neglected.
Educate the public about the horrors of puppy mills and dog fighting.
Ensure that perpetrators of animal abuse are held accountable and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
