Celeste is a sweet and friendly tri-color smooth coat girl with a long tail --- lanky and lovely! *Foster Notes* 3/10/17 - She is doing just great. We have done some long walks on the headlands and she is great on and off leash. Obedient, she comes back when you call her name. She is house trained too. She seems very happy here and has a big yard to play in. I put her in a crate last night but she wailed so I let her out almost immediately and she did well overnight just able to roam around when she wanted to.'

; ; *Adoption fee $400*; ; *More Foster Notes* 3/11/17 - 'Celeste continues to thrive and is adorable. She is excellent on and off leash and stays with me all the time. She loves long walks and has lots of energy. She is already very loving and loyal and adores lots of attention. She is super smart and picks up commands lightning fast. She would do very well with a family that love to take frequent hikes in the countryside.'

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.
