Volunteer Notes, By Elle:

; As you can see from the photo, Chester has had a hard life. As if it weren't bad enough that someone tipped his ear and left him in a feral cat colony, he also had a serious injury to his eye. When Chester first arrived he kept his distance from everyone and continually picked fights with the other cats. But those days are over as Chester has blossomed into a fully domesticated, interactive, charming, incredibly sweet and loving adult kitty. There's something about Chester that's thoroughly deep and soulful. His quiet demeanor and expressive green eyes have won the hearts of Staff and volunteers alike. His love is super sweet and gentle and there's something spiritual about him. So if you are looking for a kitty you can connect with on a deep level then Chester would be perfect. Chester would love to be the only kitty in the household, but he's fine with other cats as long as they leave him alone. He would do best in a calm, quiet, adult home. For more information about Chester contact Chester lives at the Milo Foundation Sanctuary but can also be shown in the Bay Area.

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.
