Cesar Millan's Birthday Wish to Help Homeless & Abandoned Dogs and Promote Children's Educational Curriculum for Schools

Woos! Happy Birthday, Cesar!
Happy Birthday to the Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan! His birthday wish is to raise, "$42,000 to support dogs through The Millan Foundation. Your donations will go towards the rescue, rehabilitation, and re-homing of abused and abandoned dogs, as well as the expansion of the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum that uses dogs to help teach children social and emotional learning in schools." What a great wish! Even if we can't donate money, by helping to spread the word of his birthday wish, we can hopefully help raise funds for these great programs that benefit our furry pals and hu-kids too! 




Just a reminder that my original Hurricane Disaster Pet Preparedness post from Thursday has been updated with other sites and resources that may be of assistance if you or someone you know is affected by Hurricane Irene. Just remember, no one is alone. There are some pretty wonderful people out there willing to help folks and their pets. Many shelters are now allowing pets to stay with their hu-family - just be sure to ask so you know ahead of time.  And a good tip from another site is to be sure to have their updated vaccination records with you as the evac shelter may request to see them. I have also listed in the blog tips, links, organizations, and a page for pet housing. All very valuable information brought to us by caring folks. Stay safe everyone.

  3. What a great wish! We hope it comes true! And thanks for the Hurricane Preparedness links. Irene passed us by this time, but there's still a lot more of the hurricane season to go! Hope everybody stays safe and sound!

  4. What a wonderful wish!! Thanks for all of the Hurricane information. So far Irene seems to have left us alone completely but the way it's acting, it's hard to tell. We aren't in it's direct path but usually get something wrong one....today nothing has happened here which is a good thing! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly
