Shelter Stars, the Millan Foundation's animal shelter affiliation program created in 2009, promotes positive, healthy relationships between families and the dogs they adopt from re-homing organizations across the country. Currently, over 900 Shelter Stars partners are distributing copies of Cesar Millan's Mastering Leadership DVD series volume 3: Your New Dog & Beyond, free of charge to families that adopt shelter dogs. More than 1,000 DVDs were sent home with new adopting families in the first three months of the Shelter Stars program.

Any animal shelter or rescue organization can become a Shelter Star partner with the Millan Foundation! Simply complete the short online registration form below. Shelter Stars partners will be provided with electronic, camera-ready artwork for coupons and fliers to distribute with new adoptions. Adopting families can then order and receive their free copy of the Your New Dog & Beyond DVD.

"Many wonderful dogs end up in animal shelters, not because they are bad or unlovable," according to Millan, "but because their owners are just not able to care for them." The Millan Foundation hopes to give families adopting a new dog the basic understanding of dog psychology, so they will be able to work through problem behaviors with their new dog, instead of returning the dog to the shelter.

Millions of homeless dogs in our nation's animal shelters and rescue organizations need a second chance. The Millan Foundation promotes the adoption of dogs from shelters and rescue organizations year-round. "I want to help dogs adopted from shelters become balanced, contributing members of the family, ensuring them a life-long home," says Cesar.

The Shelter Stars program provides free, professional resources for organizations to promote shelter adoptions. The Millan Foundation also provides direct funding for spaying and neutering programs and the rescue and rehabilitation of abused and abandoned dogs.
