Sanctuary Update : Gidget is currently in a foster home in Ukiah and is doing very well with building trust. She continues to have difficulty with the leash and house training but her foster mom is working with her on both. She is loving playing with other dogs and is no longer hiding, but coming up to her foster mom, tail wagging to say hello and get treats!;

Former Bio:Gidget is currently at the Milo Sanctuary. Her friend Tink has been adopted but she has made new doggy friends. She continues to be shy, but she is clearly a sweet little girl who would love to be in a stable and loving home. If you would like to help a wee one who is in need of a foster or adoptive home in order to build up their confidence, Gidget would be a wonderful choice! You could make a huge difference for a sweet little lady who very much wants to trust and love. Please send applications for Gidget to sanctuary@milofoundation.org

; ; *Former foster notes* 6/11/15 Gidget and Tink are sweet girls. They are timid and need time to trust people but they do enjoy a good lap to lay on. They have been sleeping in my room, Gidget in bed next to me and Tink at the foot of the bed. They are very attached to each other. They love to play together and do not like to be separated. They did well with our dogs, large and small. They are good dogs they would be well placed in a quiet home with a person willing to work with them to bring them out of their shells.'; ; Pre-Milo shelter notes: 'Gidget needs a warm lap, and someone to dote on her. She is shut down here, and just wants to cling to someone and be held. During her behavior evaluation she was very scared, but easy to handle. She showed no interest in food or treats. Rescue was requested because of her fearfulness.

; When I went to see Gidget today, she was curled up, looking depressed. When I sat down next to her, she raised her head to check me out, then gently took treats from me. She continued to daintily lick my fingers long after the

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.
