Washington, Dec 7 (ANI): American actress Katherine Heigl showed what it takes to be a celebrity with a heart - the Knocked Up star saved the lives of 25 Chihuahuas, who were about to be "euthanized".
Heigl and her mother's Jason Debus Heigl Foundation donated 25,000 dollars that the stray pooches could be flown from LA to their new families in Boston, Massachusetts.
The dogs will now be available for adoption at the Humane Society for Greater Nashua and Salem Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire.
"All 25 would have been euthanized if we didn't take them. We're just so happy to be saving their lives," Contactmusic quoted Humane Society director Karen Bill, as telling People mag. (ANI)
