Hieronymus came to us in '13 as a stray pig that had needed rescue from a shelter. He found a family very quickly but due to circumstances beyond their control,they recently lost their country home and are no longer able to keep him.

; We had initially thought that he was a pot bellied pig, but as he matured he grew to look more like mini-pig mix of sorts. Hieronymus likes his back scratches and to eat fruit from your hand, but he is not the kind of pig that can live in the house or go for walks with a harness. He is not a mean guy and does not bite, but can be a bit crotchety and would likely preffer an adult home. ; The ideal place for him would be another country home where he can just be a pig, preferably with other livestock that he can be friends with. He has not yet lived with other pigs to our knowledge, but he hung out with the family cat and also enjoyed the company of a neighboring donkey. Please send interest in Hieronymus to sanctuary@milofoundation.org

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.
