Crazy PetWORCESTER, MA – A dog can make a big difference in a kid’s life — but having a canine companion can be a life-changing event for a child with a disability who gets paired with a trained service dog.

Matthew has Asperger’s Syndrome, a condition that makes it difficult and terrifying to go out in public and interact with people.

Kind of by accident, I ended up with several articles to post this past week that focused on philanthropy in one way or another. Did you get a chance to donate to any of the causes?

Cesar Milan’s Pack Walk

Scooby-Doo, Cesar Millan and friends are headed to the National Mall in Washington, DC on September 29th, 2012 for the 2nd Annual National Family Pack Walk event. This is not your average walk in the park; they will be walking to save the lives of dogs at this year’s event.

Cesar Millan will kick-off the event with a 1.5 mile Pack Walk. Upon completion of the walk, attendees will return to the event area for an afternoon filled with fun, mystery, education and much more presented by Scooby-Doo, Mutt-i-grees®, North Shore Animal League America and other partners.

Not going to be in DC? There are also walks taking place in many states, as well as an online virtual walk so you can participate from the comfort of your easy chair.

All of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Cesar Millan Foundation’s continued efforts to help rescue, rehabilitate and re-home abused and abandoned dogs.

Please participate if you can!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
