One of three bedraggled cuties from Richmond. Charming dogs, affectionate and silly, not used to a lot of things out in the world, but sweet, good temperaments and ready for loving and learning!! AND....grooming!

; These are sweet dogs whose family fell on hard times, lacking in resources, but they were cared for and they grew up with kids that loved them, and they like kids.

; More soon. $400 adoption fee ... extra donations appreciated! We'll aim to get them groomed. Remember dogs with coats like these need attention and care!

; These dogs are very deserving of homes with folks with the ability to provide nutritious food, vet care (they were fixed by Paw Fund years back, and came as strays to Milo prior, and were vaccinated....) They are healthy, nice dogs, ready to spend the rest of their lives in the laps of luxury - or at least, in really great homes!

; *FOSTER NOTES* 12/27/16- Cosita is amazing. She is extremely food motivated which has made training fun. She knows 'off', 'uh-uh', is learning 'sit', 'down', and 'leave it'. She walks well on leash but is an escape artist. We should have called her Houdini because she can escape almost any harness or collar. She is about 90% potty trained. We have really been working on positive reinforcement. We notice she doesn't fully evacuate her bladder when she urinates outside, so she will need continued help to learn and this means more frequent trips outside for potty. She might do best in a house with a doggie door where she can come and go in a fenced yard as needed. She has never pooped in the house.

; Cosita might be 7 but she is a bundle of fun and so funny. She is amazing with small children. She is not bossy, and she and our dog are now fast friends. She has discovered toys at our house and LOVES balls. She will bat them all around the house. She also has discovered soft fabric dog toys and loves to chew them. She has been surprising good with our child's toys, and only once did she try and tak

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.
