; ; My name is Rex, and I?m a Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix. That is my sister Jemma, she is a Yorkie/Italian Greyhound mix. We are siblings, and we have so much fun together! We love to cuddle every night, tackle each other during the day, and lay in the warm sun together. We have lived together since we were two months old, so we cannot be separated, as we get major anxiety and depression.

; Being a Jack Russell, I have a ton of energy! I love to go on runs, play fetch, and rough house with humans. However, I am a little love bug! I fall asleep standing up if you scratch my belly, and I love to sit on your lap while you are on the computer or watch TV.

; My sister Jemma is a little different! Before she became my sister, she lived in a home where they physically harmed her. Although she is skittish and likes to hide behind things, she loves to be held by people she trusts. Sometimes my mom even holds her while cleaning the house, or making dinner! Jemma is also a sucker for a good belly scratch, and loves to walk around on her hind legs! We are quite the duo. Unfortunately, we are looking for a new family. Our mom loves us so much, but she is working full time and is also in school, so we get very lonely during the day. Although she has tried for over a year to spend time with us when she is home, she often is very tired or consumed with too many responsibilities. Our mom knows that we deserve a home where we can get walks and belly scratches every day! We hope to find a family with no children soon, as kids scare us a bit. Our mom really hopes to find a family that would be okay with an open adoption. She has raised us from age 2 months to 3 years, and would be so sad if she never got to see us again! Will you please help us find a happy family to be a part of?'

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.
