Molly is a big happy girl! She loves people and gets along well with other dogs. She can sometimes start off with some dominant style playing at first that may spook the more timid, but she IS just playing and wants to be friends. Molly had been spotted in Garberville as a stray for over two weeks but no one took her in. One young man had learned that she had found herself with a local who had his rights to have animals revoked in the past. Worried for her safety, he was able to convince the man to give Molly up. In the two days that the young man had her, she was friendly and playful with his older female pup and although she showed interest in chasing the outdoor cats if they ran, her attention could be called away and he did not personally think that she meant them any real harm. He was about to leave town and asked if we would please take her even temporarily, but ideally until a home could be found. When she was found she had been spayed in the weeks prior and still had stitches in place. We tried our best to do detective work to find her last family but sadly have not been able to do so.

; Molly will make someone a lovely companion. She is large, but not a brute. She is active but not hyper. She is outgoing and friendly, but not over pushy or needy for attention. She has lived in the country, but we feel she is confident and even tempered enough for city life. She could use some work on learning not to pull on the leash but all in all, Molly is a great dog who is ready for the next chapter in her life! Please send applications for Molly 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.
