Milo is an adorable and goofy one year old mastiff/pit mix. He was found in an abandoned building in Brooklyn, along with this brother (who has already been adopted). We know for sure that he had a family at one time, because he knows sit, shake, leave it, and is 100% house-trained.

We just love this big guy! He is about 60 pounds, and although he won't get any taller he may fill out a bit. He loves to play with balls and other dogs (not tiny dogs, due to his size) and squeaky toys (which he rips to shreds in short time). He romps around his foster home with his favorite green ball, and he keeps us laughing because he is still somewhat puppyish and clumsy. Milo gets along great with the other dogs in his foster home (both male and female), but a canine companion is not a requirement. He is active, but also loves being a couch potato and will gladly fall asleep on your lap or next to you in bed.

Milo is somewhat shy when meeting new people, but warms up quickly. He loves kids and adults alike, and would make an excellent family dog. He is up to date on all his shots, neutered, micro-chipped, heart worm negative, and completely housetrained. Milo is still young and will require daily exercise, either playing with other dogs or being a running/hiking companion. He would probably be OK with long daily walks as well. He has such a gentle and loving personality, and his foster mom knows he will be the perfect addition to a very lucky family!

If you would like to meet Milo, please fill out our online application or email us at It will expedite the process. Check the events page on our website for more information and directions to meet our dogs.

About Shelter Survivors

About Our Rescue Group...

Shelter Survivors was formed to serve the needs of dogs that have been brought to shelters in the tri-state area, by providing loving and expedient rescue, foster homes and placement with a great measure of compassion and through teamwork with you and other rescue groups and shelters. Our focus is primarily on shelter dogs, and we work with local shelters to help communities in our area. We believe in saving the lives of shelter dogs, one dog at a time.

Shelters Survivors is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Any financial support to help us care for our animals is very much appreciated and we also need dog food, crates of all sizes, beds and blankets for the pets in our care.

We do not have a shelter so we don't have visiting hours.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Please note that Shelter Survivors does not run a physical shelter but uses a unique network of loving foster homes to house the animals awaiting adoption. To meet one of the animals that you find on the web, come to our adoption days (see the "events" page of our website) or send us an application at Most of our adoption days are at PetCo in Raritan (off of the Somerville Circle).

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt one of our animals, go to our website at and download our Microsoft Word dog application, or use our "online application."

Adoption Fees:

Adoption fees are donations to Shelter Survivors, not payment for value received, and are based primarily on the age, health, and temperament of a particular dog, and our expenses. Shelter Survivors is not an actual shelter, and we are not subsidized. Most shelters receive municipal funding, while Shelter Survivors operates on adoption fees and donations. All of our members are volunteers, and none of us receives a salary or payment of any kind. Our funds go 100% toward the care of our dogs, primarily for veterinary expenses. Volunteers usually pay the costs for transport, fostering, phone calls, postage, and adoption screening out of their own pockets.

The adoption fees range from $200.00 to $300.00, which is a bargain when you consider that spaying/neutering, testing, training and inoculations are usually included. Any difference in fee is noted in the description of the individual pet. Many animals have been micro-chipped.
