He was on his last day at the shelter and a great volunteer there saved his life and took him home. We will be getting a foster report from her soon. She did mention he is cat and dog friendly but likes to eat his food alone.

; ; Harvey is good with other dogs and loves his walks. He enjoys snuggling and is a great dog. He was possessive over resources and did not respond well to certain males in his foster home.

; ; *Foster Notes* 1/16/16 Harvey is very smart and well behaved. He is leash trained and house broken. He got along very well with all 3 of our small female dogs. He loves to snuggle and loves warm blankets. He is also independent though and will happily snuggle into a dog bed. He is not a barker. He was a little shy at first, but he is very affectionate and likes people! He is not territorial.'

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.
