Sugar sweet Mama Stephanie! She landed as a stray, knocked up and dumped in Porterville CA, USA. Just before Halloween there she was, bulging with babies, not knowing why the heck she is now in a concrete cell in a loud shelter full of stress and anxiety! She hunkered down and waited, with the shelter minimal staff and volunteers doing their best to give her and her soon to come babies a chance to get out alive!

; Well, there she was two plus weeks later - which is awesome and out come her nine pups! Still the shelter is working trying to find her a place....Milo found a foster home and here she came! Stephanie is a lovely dog, mellow and trusting.... more soon-ish - she is off at a lovely Milo foster home!

; *Update* 11/25/16 Sadly her puppies did not make it.'

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.
