Owen is a senior boy looking for a specific home. He is very loving and gentle with those that he knows and loves, but can be protective when it comes to men outside of the family coming into the home, approaching the car or walking towards his family. He adored the young child in the home, but given that he can be snappy with strangers, a quiet home with older children would be ideal for this pretty boy. He can get along well with some dogs, but he really does like for his life to be clam and predictable, so any potential canine companions would ideally not be alpha or overly goofy etc. Owen is really just looking for a loving and rural home where he can relax and be happy and again be a cherished member of a family. Please email applications to foster/adopt Owen to sanctuary@milofoundation.org

About Milo Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

THE MILO FOUNDATION was named after an Australian Shepherd. Milo was five weeks old when Lynne Tingle discovered that her puppy was both deaf and blind. Despite concerns from friends and family, Lynne was determined to give Milo a good life.

It was a learning process for both Milo and Lynne, his "seeing eye person". Lynne developed a series of taps to communicate with Milo. A tap on the left or right flank would instruct Milo which direction to go. And a tap on the rear meant 'stop'. In the park, Milo's feet read the ground like Braille, where he bounded around in circles with his nose in the air, barking with joy.

Given a chance to live, Milo became a happy, beloved dog. The experience with Milo led Lynne to learn about other animals who needed a chance - abandoned and stray dogs and cats who fill city shelters - which led to the founding of the nonprofit no-kill sanctuary: The Milo Foundation.

After a full and happy life, Milo passed away in August of 1998. He was the perfect spirit and namesake for a sanctuary dedicated to saving the lives of creatures who deserved, like Milo, a chance at a good life.

Today, The Milo Foundation is an established 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill organization providing an alternative for homeless pets throughout Northern California, through education, adoption services, and providing sanctuary for animals until permanent homes can be found. Founded in August of 1994, The Milo Foundation is located on two hundred and eighty-three acres in Mendocino County - offering lots of room for the animals to run and play. Milo houses cats, dogs, puppies and kittens - occasionally farm animals and other domestic creatures find their way to the sanctuary.
