EAT. PLAY. LOVE.

; ; These are Hank's priorities. Hank is all about giving and getting LOVE. He is one of the happiest, sweetest creatures you will ever meet. He is very special and is going to make an awesome companion for some lucky somebody(s). Hank is cuddling in the lap of his foster dad right now, alive and well, due to his extraordinary temperament.

; ; Hank was lost and was found in Bakersfield, starved, bald and nearly blind. Given the hellish reality of Central Valley shelters, his awful condition and his breed- he was number one on The List'. Too weak to even lift his own big fat beautiful head, he was still wagging his tail, grinning and asking for belly rubs. His unconditional happiness inspired many people to move mountains to save his charming self. He was a great sport throughout all of the traumatic surgeries/treatments, and now is 100% healthy.

; ; Hank is a happy boy; Happy to cuddle, snuggle and sleep all day (a total couch potato); Happy to play with his foster dogs; Happy to ignore his foster cat; Happy to have his chin scratched by strangers (friendly and docile); Happy riding in the car; Happy to learn new tricks (smart, obedient and well-behaved). He is happy playing in water. He is happy hiking and running (strong and athletic). Hank is above all a lover and a pleaser; He is a people dog and is happiest when he is with his family, making them happy. He doesn't need to be in your lap all the time (OK, sometimes), but he is a velcro dog and wants to be with you. He would be a great dog to take to the office- or to sit at your feet while you work at home.

; ; At home, Hank is pretty much a perfect boy. However, like all of us, he isn't perfect. He is extremely curious and sensitive, but gets overexcited/overenthusiastic when out in the world. He was likely chained or penned up most of his life, so he is eagerly trying to catch up with all the overwhelming sights, sounds and smells around him. The more he covers new territory, the more

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.
