Katherine Heigl has pledged to donate $1 million dollars to spay and neuter programs in Los Angeles.
The “Life As We Know It” actress kicked off an initiative in collaboration with the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation called “The Compassion Revolution,” which aims to reduce the number of animals in LA area shelters.
If compassion for animals does not appeal to some, the costs of such a tragedy should be enough to make even the biggest cynic turn their head. According to The Hollywood Reporter, each year, 500,000 animals are sheltered and euthanized in California, which costs the state $250 million dollars. Heigl has emphasized to the media that many people are completely unaware of these numbers, as well as the statistics on how easily animals that aren’t fixed can multiply.
“They have no idea that a litter of 10 means a litter of, like, 400 in the future,” Heigl said. “We can tell them and educate them, and provide a way for them to spay and neuter their pets.”
