The ac­tress speaks out to pro­mote adop­tion

Modern Dog - - THE SCOOP -

We love dogs of all breeds and sizes, but hav­ing fos­tered a se­ries of Chi­huahuas here at Mod­ern Dog HQ, we ad­mit­tedly have a soft spot for the saucy Chi's. Do you know that Chi­huahuas are one of the breeds most com­monly found at shel­ters, af­ter Pit­bulls and Amer­i­can Stafford­shire Ter­ri­ers? In Cal­i­for­nia and Ari­zona alone, shel­ters are over­flow­ing with them. But the is­sue doesn’t know ge­o­graphic bound­aries—it runs coast to coast. Th­ese pint-sized cuties are of­ten over­looked for adop­tion be­cause of some com­mon breed mis­con­cep­tions, but in re­al­ity no two Chi­huahuas are alike. Th­ese sassy charm­ers could be just the match you're look­ing for. In an ef­fort to help th­ese lit­tle guys find homes Kather­ine Heigl (ac­tress, co-founder of the Ja­son De­bus Heigl Foun­da­tion, and “mom” to three res­cued Chi­huahuas, Ger­tie, Gra­cie, Lou, and Poppy) has teamed up with the He­len Wood­ward An­i­mal Cen­ter to launch a so­cial me­dia cam­paign ded­i­cated to find­ing for­ever homes for th­ese lit­tle fur­balls.
