Cesar the “Dog Whisperer” Establishes a Foundation
The Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation Established
LOS ANGELES,CA (rushprnews) 02/27/2007– Cesar Millan — whose hit series
“Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan” has become a national phenomenon — and
his wife Ilusion Millan have founded THE CESAR AND ILUSION MILLAN
FOUNDATION, a national, non-profit foundation designed to aid and support
the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of abused and abandoned dogs
throughout the United States.Â
The Millans are simultaneously establishing a new headquarters for
their successful Dog Psychology Center, where they maintain round-the-clock
care and rehabilitation of up to fifty or more animals at a time. The
Center is moving from its present inner city Los Angeles location to a
forty-acre rural ranch near Santa Clarita, California. The Millans will
live on the property, which will include dog trails, exercise runs, an
obstacle course, a small lake large enough for swimming and recreation, and
a host of kennels.
Initial funding for The Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation will be
provided by the Millans themselves.
Â Specifically, the Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation will offer
financial support and rehabilitation expertise to:
Â Â Â *Â Assist select non-profit dog rescue shelters and organizations engaged
Â Â Â Â Â Â in the rescuing, rehabilitation, and locating of homes for abused and
Â Â Â Â Â Â abandoned dogs with funding and expertise.
Â Â Â *Â Support no-kill shelters and other organizations committed to saving
Â Â Â Â Â Â dogs from euthanasia, as well relocating misplaced, and/or
Â Â Â Â Â Â misunderstood animals.
Â Â Â *Â Create and support regional and national projects targeting education
Â Â Â Â Â Â and awareness of proper dog behavior and care; separate outreach will
Â Â Â Â Â Â be conducted to both adults and children.
Â Â Â *Â Produce and create national public service announcements to create and
Â Â Â Â Â Â foster awareness of important animal-related issues including spay and
Â Â Â Â Â Â neuter programs.
Â Â Â The Millans jointly state: “We have personally enjoyed good fortune
over the years and the national platform our ‘Dog Whisperer’ series has
provided us makes the timing perfect to reach out and help others in the
field. The Foundation, which has long been a dream of ours, is intended to
benefit needy dog shelters and rescue centers throughout the United States.
Our many years of experience has taught us that most animals can make
excellent companions, and that all many of them need is the proper care and
a second chance.”
Â Â Â Millan, born in rural Mexico, first came to the United States intent on
becoming the world’s best dog trainer. Since then, Millan has successfully
spread his message by way of his hit television series on The National
Geographic Channel, #1 New York Times best-selling book “Cesar’s Way,” and
