“The Dog Whisperer” himself, Cesar Millan, is taking his animal skills to a new level. He has been named the national spokesman for the North Shore Animal League’s Pet Adoptathon.

According to Look to the Stars, the North Shore organization is home to Mutt-i-grees and is the world’s largest no-kill rescue and adoption center.

This particular event joins together over 2,500 shelters located in the U.S., Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and six countries for Pet Adoptathon Month in May.

Millan, who is known for his show on Nat Geo WILD says, “Adoption is the responsible choice and each animal adopted is a life saved.”

The animal-friendly affair will be held in New York on Saturday, May 5, for 36 hours. Several shelters will host events all weekend long showing the importance of adopting and rescuing shelter animals. In addition to this one event, activities will be held nationwide throughout May to help raise money and save the lives of animals.

First started in 1995, Pet Adoptathon has remarkably found homes for over 300,000 animals.

“My vision is for a life-long healthy relationship between dogs and people, and supporting the rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of homeless animals through events like Pet Adoptathon is a vital piece of making that happen,” Millan said.

Not only does the occasion promote adoption for all animals, but also specifically Mutt-i-grees. What are Mutt-i-grees? They are dogs, cats, puppies and kitten living in shelters that are euthanized. An estimated 8 million to 10 million animals live in shelters, with over 4 million put to death.

Millan added, “With the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum [sponsored by the Millan Foundation] , we are increasing awareness of shelter animals while supporting the development of calm, confident and caring children who can make a difference in the lives of people, animals and the environment.”
