Sweets came to Milo after her dad passed away. He knew that she would not fare well in a regular shelter, given that she does not get along well with other dogs, and can be nervous about how she is handled. Because of this, he had the foresight to plan for her future by leaving funds for her continuing care. Sadly, none of his friends or family were able to care for her, and then due to legal issues, her funding was used elsewhere. Milo did not want his beloved friend to have to lose her life, despite his best efforts to ensure her happiness, and agreed to care for her here at the Sanctuary in Willits.

; Sweets does love affection and gets along well with the staff, but she would need an adult only home, due to the fact that she does have a comfort level when cuddling/being handled etc. She has never bitten any of the staff, but she can freeze or jump to tell you that she is not happy with what you are doing. She could do very well as a single dog, who could again bond closely with someone that she felt she could fully trust.

; Please email applications to foster/adopt Sweets to sanctuary@milofoundation.org

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.
