Cesar Millan, and Scooby-Doo have partnered again for the Second Annual National Family Pack Walk on September 29 in Washington, D.C.
What began as a regional event in Los Angeles in 2011 has expanded to include a series of local Pack Walks around the country between September 24 – 30, led by North Shore Animal League America national shelter partners and Mutt-i-grees Curriculum schools. The movement culminates in Washington D.C. with the large-scale National Family Pack Walk taking place on the National Mall.
The series of community Pack Walks coupled with the National Family Pack Walk, known as the One Million Paw March, will unite pack families from all walks of life in support of the primary causes of the Cesar Millan Foundation. The Cesar Millan Foundation is dedicated to promoting animal welfare by supporting the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abused and abandoned dogs and by delivering community humane education programs, including the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum.
“The Pack Walk is a movement towards reconnecting ourselves with our dogs and our community. By stepping up as a pack leader, it’s more than just walking a dog,” said Millan. “We need to be walking in one direction, toward a common outcome, helping one another. I want this to be a symbolic event for the community as a goal towards building healthy relationships with their dogs and each other.”
The national movement will conclude in Washington, D.C. with a 1.5 mile Pack Walk around the National Mall, led by Cesar Millan and Scooby-Doo, followed by an afternoon of Scooby-themed activities from numerous Warner Bros. partners, licensees and charitable sponsors. A fun, interactive environment for families and dog enthusiasts, the national event as well as all local events will be open to the public.
Proceeds from all National Family Pack Walk events throughout the country will be donated to the Millan Foundation.
