Facts about Keaton

We first met Keaton at the Lancaster Animal Care Center. We were there to pull another dog when the acting manager, Raul, asked us if we could help Keaton. [Raul told us that when Keaton had come in as a stray with an injury to his front limp, they assumed Keaton had been hit by a car. However, when they sent Keaton to the vet for x-rays, they were horrified to discover a bullet lodged in his leg and the bone in his leg was shattered. We arranged for Keaton to be evaluated by a surgeon and hoped to save his leg. Unfortunately, despite the surgeon’s best efforts, Keaton’s leg could not be saved and was amputated.]

Keaton is a fun-loving, energetic pup. You'd never know he's missing a limb! He loves his walks, plays with toys (he’s still working on fetch), and enjoys a good car ride. Keaton is crate trained and learning to walk on a leash. Understandably, Keaton still has trust issues, so he would be best with an owner willing to give him lots of reassurance. Keaton is being fostered in a home where he is the only pet, but so far, he has not displayed dominance towards other animals. Don’t worry…Keaton is still on alert when someone is at the door! Keaton is affectionate towards his human and won't be far from your side. Be sure to watch your shoes. He's still a puppy and likes to chew if he thinks he can get away with it!

Keaton is German Shepherd mix who is approximately a year and a half old. He’s microchipped, neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and ready for his new home.

About Jason Debus Heigl Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation was founded by Nancy and Katherine Heigl to celebrate the memory of a wonderful son and brother. In 1986, Jason was killed in a car accident. He was only fifteen years old.

Throughout his brief lifetime Jason loved all animals, especially dogs and cats and monkeys. He lived his life extending compassion and kindness to all creatures great and small. This foundation is his legacy.

The mission of the JDHF is to eliminate the needless suffering inflicted on animals by human cruelty, indifference, and ignorance. Our primary focus is the greater Los Angeles area, for now.

In pursuit of our mission, the JDHF routinely funds:

Our internal rescue group, the Heigl Hounds of Hope.
Other qualified rescue groups, via Networking donations.
The Transport of LA shelter dogs to states with great demand.
Free Spay Neuter procedures for the pets of qualified caretakers.
Compassion Education programs.
And we thank you for your support.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are located in the Los Angeles area and we do adoption events around town. Just check out our website to find out where and when!

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is a couple of steps.

We ask you to begin by filling out an adoption application to express your interest in any of our animals. Once we receive the application and looked it over, we will contact you to answer any questions you may have about the pet and set up a meet and greet with the 4 legged friend you are interested in.

At that point, if you are interested in moving forward with the adoption, we will conduct a home check to make sure everything's good. We will ask you to sign an adoption agreement and ask for a donation of $150 for the adoption process.
