Katherine Heigl is steeping up her animal advocacy with a $1 million gift to help kick start the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation.

The charity, named in honor of Heigl’s late brother who died tragically in 1986, will focus on curbing the growing pet population problems in Los Angeles, as well as “support of training and obedience programs, rescue organizations, ‘no kill shelters’, pet adoption schemes and programs which help move homeless animals away from shelters which intend to put them down.”

Katherine told Access Hollywood: “I said to my mother, ‘I think it’s a really grace-filled way to honor him.’ My mother began the foundation in his name as a way of creating a legacy for this child of hers that didn’t live long enough to do that himself and he also happened to be a real advocate for animals and children and the repressed so it works out beautifully.

“It’ll never change how this day feels to us come September 23 every year. It has a significance now, of beauty, a grace to it, that we are grateful for.”
