Sanctuary Update: Although Lily Bear just adores all people, we have found that she should be an only pet that would not need to visit dog parks etc in order to be a member of a family. She is just AS sweet as can be with people, but she has instigated scraps with many other dogs. We would love to find a home for this little wiggle-butt where she could be your one true love!; ; Lilly Bear is a very active little girl who loves people and to be the center of attention! She likes other dogs but can get a bit upset/ put out if they try to steal her spotlight. We believe once she has a home with lots of love and exercise (and some training) she will settle into herself beautifully. She would make a great companion for someone with an active lifestyle, and would be a great candidate for agility training. Lilly is a wiggly, sweet and happy girl that we would love to see go into a home or foster care soon as she is still quite young and impressionable. (She is even cuter then her picture) Lilly Bear is not good with cats.

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.
