Several years ago Katherine and her mother Nancy founded the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation. Chief among the organizations many endeavors has been the diligent fight to change policies, bring awareness and stop the unnecessary euthanization of healthy adoptable animals in the city and county of Los Angeles.
In her blog she questions whether society as a whole is also culpable to some degree for abandoned, forgotten and abused animals - not just the abusers, the reckless or the thoughtless - as millions of healthy adoptable companion pets are killed every year in shelters due to overcrowding.
