Katherine Heigl's Organization Airlifts Dozens of Dogs
Twenty-five chihuahuas who would have been put to sleep were flown to new lives in the Northeast, thanks to Katherine Heigl's animal organization.
According to People, Heigl and her mother's Jason Debus Heigl Foundation donated $25,000 in order to facilitate transportation of the pooches from Los Angeles to Boston on an American Airlines flight.
People reports that the dogs, who were transferred from Kinder Rescue in Los Angeles, have ended up in New Hampshire in the care of the Humane Society for Greater Nashua and Salem Animal Rescue League of N.H., and will be made available for adoption soon, some as early as Saturday morning.
"All 25 would have been euthanized if we didn't take them," Humane Society for Greater Nashua Director Karen Bill told People. "We're just so happy to be saving their lives."
