Nora is a beautiful girl who was rescued from Coalinga along with her ELEVEN pups, the last day that their gas chamber was in use before being dismantled. Gas Chambers were phased out in CA for being inhumane, yet it was discovered that one was still in use at the small shelter, where not many animals made it out after finding themselves there. The SFSPCA stepped in and removed the terrible chamber. Nora and her tiny babies were among those that had been slated to be killed, and they did not want to leave them behind given that they would still be put to sleep. They reached out to us to see if we might be able to help, and the whole family was relocated to our sanctuary where we raised the pups until they all found wonderful and loving homes. Now it is Nora's turn!

; Nora was very thin when she came to us, but despite this would let her pups climb in her bowl no mater how hungry she was. She is a gentle and sweet girl, that did an amazing job of raising her VERY large brood of babies! She is a quiet girl, who is not reactive towards other dogs. She can be a bit stiff if they come on too strong so would likely be more comfortable with a relaxed and low key companion. Nora is waiting on a spay appointment before she could be finalized, but we would be happy to discuss fostering to adopt. She is a lovely dog that was spared a terrible fate, and we are looking forward to her having many wonderful years ahead in a loving home! Please send interest in Nora 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.
