UPDATE: Sequoia was sent down to our Milo Point Richmond adoption center from the sanctuary as we knew this amazing girl would have lots of interest! Stop in to meet her there and bring in your application or check to see if she will be attending any upcoming events!

; ; Notes from the Sanctuary: Sequoia is a happy, loving and trusting young lady! She acts like a big (72lb), sweet and goofy puppy that just loves everyone and everything. She is very playful with male and female dogs alike and would love a home with another equally sweet and playful doggy companion, or at least one where she could have routine play dates with other dogs as she seems to think they are just the best thing since sliced bread! With people she is also openly sweet and cuddly and and so far does not seem to have a mean or alpha bone in her body!

; As you can see in her photo, this otherwise absolutely beautiful girl currently has demodex, which is a non-contagious skin issue caused by malnutrition which was clearly not treated. She was found as a stray and brought to an overcrowded shelter that began treatment and reached out to us for help emptying some of their kennels. Now that she is being treated for the demodex and secondary skin infection, her skin will clear up and her beautiful fur will fill back out..she promises to be a stunning dog! Sequoia does not have to wait for her skin to fully clear before going to her new home and we can send her pills home with her new family. She is otherwise healthy and is in very good spirits! She has not yet been spayed but she can be pre-adopted with an agreement to bring her into one of our vets for her spay appointment, at which time the adoption can be finalized.

; Sequoia was a bit unsure about getting into the car initially as she probably had not been on many road trips, but settled into the back seat very well for the hour long drive(aside from the couple of times that she attempted to give gentle kisses to the driver, which were t

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.
