Sam came to us with a group of 30 other cats after their caretaker passed away. Many of them were feral and were not used to handling or being outdoors, but many have started to warm up and are now showing us that they had more one on one time in the home than the others, and just needed some time to come out of their shells. Sam would not let us get close enough to him at first to give him attention, but is now warming up quite a bit and we now feel that he could find a quiet and loving home!; ; Sanctuary Volunteer Notes: ; This kitty spends most of her time with the out door kitties on the back porch. He sleeps inside the cat house in the same place every night. He's a lovely kitty who is becoming more friendly as time goes by. Initially he ran from me but now comes to greet me. He loves affection and to be groomed and petted, placing his paw on me when I stop. He's quiet, reserved, loving and attentive. He's impeccably groomed with silky soft fur and a truly beautiful face. He's very loving with the outdoor kitties and has a soft lovely demeanor. Sweet but just a tad bit shy at times. Just coming around but loves to be pet. Can be skittish but is well on his way and I believe he would blossom in a home of his own and make a wonderful companion.

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.
