Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan's Charitable Foundation Kicks off 2nd Annual Cesar & Friends Celebrity Online Auction

Oct 29, 2010, 18:27 ET from Millan Foundation

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Millan Foundation is hosting its second annual Celebrity Online Auction October 21st through November 5th 2010.

Millions of homeless dogs in our nation's animal shelters and rescue organizations need a second chance. Every year 4 to 6 million animals are euthanized, most of them healthy, adoptable, and scared. The pet overpopulation problem in the U.S. continues to be shocking. The Millan Foundation is a leader in helping to address these problems through financial support, education, and awareness.

Last year's event proved quite successful, with more than $40,000 raised for the Foundation, and this year looks just as promising with an incredible list of auction items, including a Tom Brady signed jersey, a New Jersey Nets Package that includes two tickets to a game and your child gets to be the honorary ballboy/girl, a private visit to the set of "BONES," VIP tickets to the "Chelsea Lately" show, Lakers VIP packages, luxury vacation packages, and tons of celebrity-signed merchandise, products, and experiences, including Gloria Estefan, Jacqueline Bisset, Gisele Bundchen, and Owen Wilson.

Plus -- bidders have the opportunity to be Cesar Millan's VIP guest at one of his 2011 seminars! The top item last year -- "Spend a Day with the Dog Whisperer!" -- is being auctioned off once again.

All proceeds from the auction will go directly to the Millan Foundation for their continued support to assist non-profit animal shelters and organizations engaged in the rescuing, rehabilitation, and re-homing of abused and abandoned dogs.

Bidding is now open! The auction closes at 8 p.m. on November 5.

Supporters and fans may also participate in a special raffle for the chance to join Cesar on the road during his 2011 U.S. tour.

THE MILLAN FOUNDATION's goal is to provide financial support to assist non-profit animal shelters and organizations engaged in the rescuing, rehabilitation, and re-homing of abused and abandoned dogs. The Foundation also creates and delivers community humane education programs to help promote the importance of spaying and neutering, with the goal of reducing or eliminating pet overpopulation.  To learn more about the Millan Foundation's programs, please visit www.MillanFoundation.org .
