LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

After more than 150 Pomeranian dogs were abandoned in a U-Haul truck in Sandy Valley, Nevada in November, the public immediately wanted to know how they could rescue the small pups. On Saturday, actress Katherine Heigl posted on Twitter how she helped a dozen of them. 

"My @JasonHeiglFound took 12 of the older dogs who needed more medical care. I’m thrilled to say that as of today all 12 have found their loving forever homes (as have all the rest of the poms!)," the actress wrote. In follow-up tweets, Heigl praised the Animal Foundation and said she kept one, nicknamed "Sergeant Snuggles."

According to Twitter, The Jason Heigl Foundation is "a non-profit animal welfare organization founded by Nancy & Katherine Heigl in memory of a beloved son and brother." The actress is also heavily involved with Best Friends animal rescue, based in southern Utah. 

Heigl starred in "Grey's Anatomy" from 2005 to 2010 and starred in romantic comedies such as "27 Dresses" and "The Ugly Truth."
