My story

Parker is a lovely, 82 lb German Shepherd, who is approximately 2 years old. He is a very high energy dog and opens up with new people quickly. Parker is very playful in the playgrounds and his favorite toy is an oversized tennis ball. He loves discovering the neighborhood and new things. He also likes digging in the sandbox on the playground. Parker can suffer from separation anxiety and will need to be well-contained when his people are away. Parker would not do well in a home with other small pets, but we believe he would be fine with another large dog, if introduced correctly. Parker seems to be housetrained, but may need a refresher course when he gets into his new home.

If you are looking for a lively companion Parker is available to adopt in the Los Angeles area today!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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.

More about this rescue

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.
