Volunteers Notes, By Elle:; ; Mort r is a medium sized, gorgeous girl with stunning green eyes and a striking silver coat with blonde accents. Her exceptional good looks pared with her sweet playful personality make her a cat house star. She shines as she races about, peeking from around the corner or from behind the sofa. She's very inquisitive with an upbeat, fun style. Although she loves affection and attention she's still a bit shy about receiving it until she gets to know you, so would do better in an adult household that will allow her to warm up and come to them, rather than immediately pursuing her. Once she knows you and is comfortable she blossoms into a lovely companion who's quite entertaining. Mort r gets along well with other respectful cats but would also be happy as an only kitty. She ignored my small cat friendly dog during her stay at my house, but did not like my overbearing terrier. So no high energy, assertive dogs please. Mort r is litter box perfect and uses a cardboard scratcher.'; ; Original Bio: Very pretty, but under socialized girl. She was found under a building at a school near Merced. She was okay being moved from the carrier to her kennel at Milo, so she has been handled somewhat. She may just need someone to give her a little time to adjust to her new surroundings. She came in with her buddy Brick.

; (Having been handled more here at the sanctuary, Mortar has quickly become a regular social butterfly! Talkative and sweet, she'll follow you all over the yard looking for attention!)

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.
