Scooby-Doo, where are you? On September 29th, the sleuthing Spot was spotted promenading for a paws cause with Cesar Millan at the National Mall in Washington D.C. during the second annual National Family Pack Walk.

Taking steps toward a brighter future for dogs everywhere, a crowd 10,000 strong strolled with the cartoon canine and the dog behaviorist in a 1.5-mile “One Million Paw March” in support of The Millan Foundation, which promotes animal welfare through the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abused and abandoned dogs and by establishing community humane educations programs, including the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum. The walk was one in a series of local Pack Walks around the country between September 24 – 30, 2012, led by North Shore Animal League America national shelter partners and Mutt-i-grees Curriculum schools.

“The Pack Walk supports a mission that is close to my and Scooby-Doo’s heart – that is the rehabilitation and adoption of unwanted and abandoned dogs,” said Cesar Millan. “With America’s favorite canine Scooby-Doo as my partner, we will work to ensure dogs everywhere have the best quality of life.”

The Fido-friendly family event also offered various activities to engage animal-loving little ones, such as reading Scooby-Doo, Who Are You?, the story of Scooby’s adoption, with the Scooby-Doo interactive Storybook Buddy™; a preview of the Warner Home Video Big Top Scooby Doo! in the MysteryPiece Theater screening room; a Fur-Real photo booth; the Scooby-Doo Scavenger Hunt and much more, while tail-waggers in attendance enjoyed watching the skills of their fellow Fidos in dog agility demonstrations, doggie dancing and dog disc play at the Pawformance Stage, and romped at the off-leash Ruh-Roh Run Around.
