CHASE is currently at the Milo sanctuary near Willits. If interested, please send an application to

; ; Chase is a tall, lanky and happy guy! He was feeling very cooped up in the kennel from the shelter we rescued him from, as any big adolescent would, but is showing himself to be a lovely boy here at the sanctuary. He is a very sweet boy but is big and goofy and would benefit from some formal training. He gets along beautifully with the young female dog that he is with currently, but has had some trouble with other dogs. This has mostly been with alpha males. We would not recommend him for a dog park at this time, but if you do have another dog we would be happy to have the two of them meet to see if they could be friends.

; Chase is always happy to see us and will sit beautifully before eating without having to be asked, but does like to jump up for hugs. All in all he is a great boy who is loving and eager to please. He is looking for an active family who will work on the training that he missed out on growing up in multiple shelters. If you would like to foster/adopt Chase, please contact us at

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.
