The 2nd Annual National Family Pack Walk with Scooby-Doo and The Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan is September 29 in Washington, D.C.
This year’s National Family Pack Walk will prove, once again, that it’s not your average walk in the park. Scooby-Doo, Cesar Millan, four-legged friends and their pet parents from around the U.S., will walk to raise money to save the lives of shelter dogs. The 1.5 mile walk around the National Mall will be led by Cesar and Scooby, followed by an afternoon packed with Scooby-Doo-themed activities such as arts & crafts, a reading lounge, game tents, a scavenger hunt, and more!
While Scooby and Cesar will lead the walk in Washington, D.C., additional pack walks will take place nationwide September 23–30, with the help of the Animal League of North America. Find a local pack walk in your city at: http://bit.ly/MwZ82khttp://bit.ly/M1UTdQ.

The National Pack Walk and regional Pack Walks are part of a four-year alliance between Scooby-Doo and Cesar Millan and are made possible with national support from the following partners:
· Cesar Millan Foundation: Created by animal activist and world-renowned animal behaviorist, Cesar Millan, the Foundation strives to promote animal welfare by supporting the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abused and abandoned dogs, while establishing community humane education programs, such as the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum.
· The Mutt-i-grees Curriculum: As the leading educational program for the Cesar Millan Foundation, the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum – developed in collaboration with Yale University of the 21st Century and North Shore Animal League America and funded by the Millan Foundation, offers an innovative in-school curriculum that builds on children’s affinity for animals and highlights the unique characteristics and desirability of Mutt-i-grees®, or shelter dogs. The curriculum teaches social, emotional and instinctual skills and is unique in its bridging of humane education and the emerging field of Social and Emotional Learning in more than 1,200 participating schools.
· North Shore Animal League America: As the primary shelter-support arm of the Cesar Millan Foundation and the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization, Animal League America will organize regional shelter Pack Walks as well as participate in the Washington D.C. event. Since its inception, Animal League America has saved over one million animals, and each year continues to rescue, nurture and adopt 20,000 pets into happy and loving homes. As an extension of Scooby-Doo’s long-standing partnership with the Cesar Millan Foundation, the beloved canine icon was named as the official Pet Ambassador for Animal League America, joining their Pet Adopt-A-Thon® efforts last month.
