When Sandos Caracol Eco Resort brought renowned dog whisperer Cesar Millan to Playa del Carmen in Mexico for a weekend-long adoption drive for shelter pups, four lucky canines found homes and $10,000 was raised for their pals still cooped up in overcrowded shelters. Millan personally visited all of Sandos’ four-legged guests, who traveled from six shelters, before holding the two-legged guests rapt for one hour while talking on how to work with adopted dogs in the resort’s 500-seat theater. Proceeds from the mechandise for-sale went to the shelters.
