Mitzi is is a beautiful and friendly cat who has been waiting for a home here at the sanctuary for a very long time. Mitzi is deaf but isn't skiddish and loves to be pet. We assume that she must have been talking' a lot more when at the adoption center, but here she will only announce herself to say hi or meow once if startled. It is quite the loud meow but we all think its funny and very endearing when she lets one out, which is not very often. She loves to lounge on window sills and looks quite pretty with the sun on her fur! Please send inquiries and applications to; ; Sanctuary Volunteer Notes from Aug 2016:; I would highly recommend adopting Mitzi to anyone who would love to have a wonderful companion. Mitzi is as sweet as they come and her deafness has never hindered her ability to interact just like the other kitties. She?s got an endearingly delightful personality. She?s upbeat and happy, loves affection, cuddling and being close to her human. I love Mitzi. She?s one of my favorite kitties and she?s very very pretty with lovely eyes and a beautiful pure white coat. ; ; Former notes from 2007:; Mitzi is a sweet cat, but because of her deafness, which means she has no idea how loud she is, her yowling is proving to be a stumbling block for getting her a home. Sad that a mommy cat that raised such great babies, cannot find a loving spot for herself. We would love to see her in a safe, indoor-only home (because she is white AND deaf!), but she may end up living her life at our sanctuary in Mendocino County, if no home comes forward.

Great purr ? brushed, loves to be petted, picked up and kissed and held like a baby when she?s really relaxed. She has been known to ?capture? bags of potato chips and even pieces of mail and steal away with them, not necessarily to do anything with, though it seemed to be related to foraging fo

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.
