UPDATE: The Peanut needs a home! This sweet little monkey looks like a tabby in her photos, but she actually has some orange mixed into her coat as well, which looks beautiful with her green eyes! She is still very much a kitten, but this sweet little girl has been waiting for her forever home for far too long, and has just even lost a baby tooth. She is an extremely affectionate and loving little girl and we very much hope that she will not be passed over and spend her entire kitten hood and beyond waiting for a loving family of her own. She is a healthy and outgoing little girl, but she does still have lasting nerve damage and her family will need to continue stimulate her to go potty and we can not say if she will ever regain full control. This is TRULY very simple and barely takes any time , less than it would take to even scoop a cat box, AND as you can hold her right over the toilet, it would actually save you money on litter! If you have ever stimulated an orphaned pup or kitten to go potty, it is the exact same thing. We are so very thrilled that she is walking, running and climbing after her injury, and so hope that this one lasting issue will not cost her a lifetime of happiness in a home! If you would like to foster her initially to see if she could be a good fit and if you are up for giving her the help that she needs, please contact us and we would be happy to set up a meeting!

; ; Original Bio:; This pretty little lady has been through quite a bit in her very young life. The Peanut' was born here in Mendocino county, and when she was only about 3-4wks old someone accidentally slammed a door that she was walking through, which left her paralyzed from the waste down. Rather than bring her to the vet, they were going to kill her themselves but luckily someone present stepped in and saved her life but she did not know how to care for her and contacted us to see if we could help rather than have her euthanized and as we have experience with animals with

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.
