My story

Varsity is a 5 year old Bulldog mix. He is loving, protective, and playful! Like his name suggests, Varsity is a professional ball player. He loves to practice kicking and dribbling his ball in big, grassy yards. He loves short leash walks and giving kisses right on the mouth!

Due to Varsity’s sports career, he has developed arthritis in his hind legs. Varsity is not able to go on long or steep hikes, but he still loves trotting around his yard. He does not pay any mind to rabbits or squirrels around, because he has his head in the ball game! Varsity is a couch potato and would loves to fall asleep on the couch with his human.

If you are looking for a loving and protective companion and are located in the Greater Los Angeles area, Varsity is the dog for you!

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.
