Sanctuary Update: Oliver is now waiting for a home here at the sanctuary in Willits. He would be best in a rural home as he does like to chase this with wheels, ie skateboards, bikes etc. He would also do best in an adult only home. Oliver gets along very well with the staff, but does need a brief warming up period before he feels he can fully trust them. One game of fetch with usually seal the deal for this pretty boy. ; Original Bio: Oliver is a sweet boy with high energy and he loves human attention. Oliver loves to have a ?job,? whether it?s running beside his human, or playing fetch with balls or Frisbees. He likes to play in fields or in the water with his dog friends. Ollie is a herding dog and has some anxiety, particularly around children and bicycles. He should be in an adult home with a human who can provide strong leadership. Oliver is VERY obedient and has great recall to his name. He is also crate-trained, which helps a lot with his anxiety. Ollie?s current owner adopted him from Milo as a 6 month old, and has given him a ton of love and training, but is in a graduate program that requires her to travel frequently, and she?s now not able to give him what he needs. Oliver is looking for a stable, loving home with people who can give him lots of attention and exercise.

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.
