Get in SHAPE with Cesar Millan!

The Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation reaches out to shelters and rescue groups across the country, providing access to educational materials for staff, volunteers, and new adopters.

The Foundation has created a network of animal shelters and rescue organizations called Shelter Stars. Through these groups, they provided free information on the basics of dog psychology to new adopting families. There are 450 Shelter Stars partners, and the Foundation's goal is to reach 25,000 new adopting families this year.

The newest progam, the SHelter Animal Physical Enrichment program (SHAPE) provides training guides, DVDs, and mentoring for staff, volunteers, and adopting families to implement Cesar Millan's calm, assertive leadership principles in animal shelters. Creating a balanced, peaceful environment in shelters alleviates fear and anxiety for displaced animals and enables them to be properly matched with their forever home.

Way to go, Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation!
