Renowned dog expert Cesar Millan, serves as spokesperson, for the 15th annual global adoption extravaganza, sponsored by Nestle Purina PetCare Company and will take part in activities at the Pet Adoptathon headquarters in Port Washington, NY during the weekend.

Beginning at 9 AM on Saturday, May 2, shelters in every time zone will open their doors for the 36-hour adoption event. This year’s Pet Adoptathon will celebrate 2009 as the Year of Mutt-i-grees™, an initiative of The American Mutt-i-grees Club (AMC) The AMC encourages animal lovers world wide to adopt of mixed breed shelter dogs as a way of taking a stand against inhumane puppy mills and helping to curb the rate of euthanasia of healthy adoptable shelter animals due to lack of space.

On Saturday, May 2, 2009 at Pet Adoptathon national headquarters, North Shore Animal League America will hold opening ceremonies, featuring Millan. The star of National Geographic Channel’s, “Dog Whisperer,” Millan recently created “Sessions with Cesar”, a successful online training course for dog owners. In partnership with North Shore Animal League America, the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization, he is also developing a 3-step “Shelter & Rescue Sessions” training program to benefit the more than 2000 Pet Adoptathon 2009shelter and rescue partners. “Shelter & Rescue Sessions” will address relinquishments, in-shelter behavior problems (to enhance adoptability of pets) and give shelters and rescues an effective post-adoption tool to minimize return rates. Cesar and Ilusion Millan have also created a foundation to help support the shelter and rescue community.

Over the course of Pet Adoptathon Weekend Animal League adopters, will have over 700 puppies, kittens, dogs and cats to choose from at the Port Washington shelter. In addition to Cesar Millan’s appearances, the 36 hour marathon event will feature family-style entertainment under a big tent, including performances both days by the Purina Incredible Dog Team, refreshments, raffles, a caricaturist (Dale Gladstone), a pet psychic and spring plant sales. Experts in training, veterinary care and grooming will be on hand both days to offer tips and advice.

In 1995, Pet Adoptathon began as a North Shore Animal League adoption weekend, with the goal of finding homes for each and every dog and cat at the Animal League. That weekend, over 500 needy pets found loving homes. Encouraged by the success, the Animal League went on to invite shelters world-wide to participate in Pet Adoptathon. Last year, over 2,000 shelters participated, including organizations in all fifty states and over 23 countries world-wide, with at least one shelter in each time zone. To date, Pet Adoptathon has fostered over 250,000 loving adoptions world-wide.

Pet Adoptathon
, a program of North Shore Animal League America, is sponsored by Purina(R) and Fort Dodge Animal Health(R). For participating shelters in your area or more information visit or call the Adoptathon Hotline at 800-214-4308.

Caricature Artist anecdote

Caricaturist, Dale Gladstone

A year or so ago, I was hired to draw
caricatures during a segment of the Tyra Banks show. That day, they ran way behind schedule & were not able to use me. Fortunately, they had no difficulty paying me for the 2 or 3 hours I spent waiting for them not drawing caricatures. Meanwhile, I had an amusing little experience:

Waiting for Tyra's people to show, I sat at the specified rendezvous point, Columbus Circle. An older couple sat next to me and saw my plastic "
Caricatures by Dale Gladstone" sign (I wanted to make sure Tyra's people would find me). The gentleman said to his wife, "Well, here we are in Columbus Circle, and here's Dale Gladstone." I said hi & shook his hand. He told me they were from LA so I mentioned how one of my pals out there is Bryan (Usual Suspects, X-Men, Superman Returns & Valkyrie) Singer. He asked me if I knew who Glenn Ford was. I said sure & he introduced himself as Peter Ford, Glenn's son. He mentioned how Warner Bros. contacted him for an old photo of his Dad to put on Eva Marie Saint's mantle in the Kent farmhouse in Superman Returns. Some of you might recall GF played Clark Kent's adoptive Dad in the 1st Chris Reeve Superman flick. PF & I had a nice chat about old movies & the book he wrote.

Remember to visit my caricature website. The art you find on my Caricature page does not represent what I draw at trade shows, parties & events, but it's great for VIP gifts. The drawings you see on my Party Caricatures page DO represent what I draw at trade show booths, parties & events. Don't blow your money on some hack, hire the best caricaturist. Now it's time I get serious about networking...
