Ricky is a sweet boy that came to us with his two siblings (Chiclet and Baby) and their semi-feral mother after their person passed away. Ricky had a hard time adjusting at first but has come back out of his shell and will now talk to you for attention. He can still get a bit spooked when picked up, but once being held likes to settle in on your shoulder. He is a beautiful and delicate cat that is ready and waiting for a new loving home!; ;

8/25/16 Sanctuary Volunteer Notes, by Elle: Ricky lives in the main yard and can usually be found snoozing on the main porch. He's a stunning looking cat, likely Maine Coon. He's a friendly fellow who acknowledges me when I arrive but has never sought me out seeking attention or affection. I can pet, scratch, groom him but he doesn't seem to be enthusiastic about my touch or me for that matter. But he doesn't run away either. I never see him interacting with the other cats in either a positive or negative manner. Mostly he's by himself, aloof and easy going. I think in a home he'd blossom and will take him home soon to see how he does.

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.
