Warner Bros. Consumer Products, internationally renowned dog behavior expert Cesar Millan, and Scooby-Doo were joined by over a thousand dogs and their loyal owners for the Scooby-Doo and Cesar Millan National Family Pack Walk on Sunday, October 30, at Lake Balboa Park in Van Nuys, CA.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the event were donated to the Millan Foundation, which strives to create and deliver community humane education programs and promote animal welfare by supporting the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abused and abandoned dogs.
As part of an ongoing partnership with Scooby-Doo and Cesar Millan, the National Family Pack Walk brought together humans and dogs for a day filled with fun activities, games, training and education.
The entire experience was geared toward enhancing the relationship between owner and dog, which kicked off with a 1.5-mile Pack Walk around the lake led by Cesar and the beloved Scooby-Doo.
And the hot weather couldn’t scare away the fun – people and pups of all ages came to enjoy the Halloween-themed event.
Special guests included “General Hospital” stars, Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) and Lisa LoCicero (Olivia Falconeri), actress and model Mayte Garcia (Firehouse Dog), LaMonica Garrett (Sons of Anarchy), and children’s author David Shannon (Good Boy, Fergus).
In the Scooby-Doo screening room, fans enjoyed a preview of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group’s new Scooby-Doo release, Scooby-Doo Legend of the Phantosaur, as well as episodes from the first season of Warner Bros. Animation’s animated adventure series, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. Season 2 of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated is coming soon to Cartoon Network.
