In case you haven’t heard, Cesar Millan is coming to Manila.
My girlfriend and I are very excited. We can’t wait to meet the leader of the pack!
We’re excited because we want to train and breed dogs. Twenty years from now, my girlfriend and I want to retire and be able to devote all of our time to breeding and training dogs and making sure they find the best “pack leaders” for them. After hours and hours of Dog Whisperer and Leader of the Pack marathons, I have come to acknowledge Cesar’s understanding of dog behavior and it would be great to be just a few meters away watching him at work and learning.
Another reason I am excited that he’s coming to Manila is this: in 2011, Compassion and Responsibility for Animals Welfare Philippines (CARA) took custody of over 200 pit bulls after they were rescued from a syndicate involved in dog fighting operations. So, the Help Save the Pit Bulls project was started. Rescuing the dogs was just the beginning. Since then, they have been working on rehabilitating the poor animals, nurturing them back to health and helping them find new homes.
This is Cinnamon, one of the many pit bulls who were rescued from a life of abuse under the cruel hands of the dog fighting syndicate.
Now you might be wondering, “how is this related to Cesar Millan?” Well, CARA believes that if Cesar Millan visits the shelter where the pit bulls are being rehabilitated, it can get the dogs some media exposure, exposure that will create awareness about the situation and, hopefully, expedite the rehabilitation and re-homing of the animals who have clearly suffered enough.
CARA is asking people to make a short video answering the question, “Why should Cesar Millan visit the Laguna Pit Bulls?”
If you want to help, please leave a comment below with your answer to the question. I’m sure it won’t take five minutes of your time. I will take a screenshot of all the comments, collate them, and send them to CARA. One short sentence from you means a lot to those beautiful, powerful dogs. Thank you.
