HAPPY UPDATE 10/18/16! BETTY AND SNICKERS ARE IN A FOSTER HOME!!! We are all ecstatic about this new hope for these girls!!

; Sanctuary Update: Snickers has recently made great progress with bonding with the staff. We now feel that both she and her sister would be candidates for a very special foster or adoptive home. We do want to stress that these girls would need a very patient ad calm environment as they were dealt a very sad hand in life. They have spent a great deal of their time here at the sanctuary shut down, finding comfort with each other but we have turned a corner with them and they are now finally wagging their tails and bouncing when they see us coming, approaching us for treats and allowing gentle pets. These girls will never be social butterflies, but the fact that we have had such a break through with them gives us a glimmer of hope that they be able to find a special person who will be able to keep the momentum building and earn their trust. They would certainly need a rural and adult only home, and would do best as the only two pets in the home. Betty was formerly the more brave of the two, but Snickers is the one that has recently shown the most progress and is now helping her sister to come out of her shell now more than ever. Please email sanctuary@milofoundation.org to learn more about adopting or sponsoring these two adorable girls.

; Original bio: Snickers and her blonde sister, Betty (our names) were confiscated by the police in Merced County when their owner was put in jail, for a long time.' There were four dogs seized, all under socialized and obviously handled with a heavy hand.... We took these two sweet, shy girls. ; They are dying to feel okay to feel secure, loved and gain trust - we don't want to split them up as of yet - they really help each other and love each other - Betty is the leader of the two, Snickers follows Betty's lead. If you have dreamed about fostering a duo where you big making a huge difference, consider

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.
