The sanctuary took in a group of 30 indoor feral' cats after their caretaker passed away. They came to us with varying degrees of socialization, some fully feral as believed and some turned out to actually be friendly. The majority of the cats in the group, such as this boy, were very skiddish at first but as they have settled in more their personalities are now coming out. Kyle is still quite skiddish, but is not feral as we originally believed given that he will now sometimes allow being pet. We will update his bio if/when he becomes more social and trusting of handling. In the meantime he will be here at the sanctuary spending time with his friends and family while getting to know us more. ;

Sanctuary Volunteer notes by Elle: Gorgeous Abyssinian looking cat with striking face and tipped ear. At times he allows me to approach and pet him. He seems to really enjoy and hangs with me briefly. Other times he's skittish and won't let me anywhere near him. He's not feral. I like his usually calm energy. He's watchful and appears to be younger than most of the other cats and in very good health. I like him allot. I know one day he will come into my lap and become who he once was before he became homeless and ended up in a feral colony.

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.
