*VOLUNTEER NOTES* 6/9/17-What a happy, energetic little dog! I was shocked to learn that she failed her temperament test for being fearful. She was outgoing and social and so tolerant of a 3 yr old walking her. She gave lots of kisses and her tail wagged the entire walk. She has great energy without being hyper. I would absolutely recommend her to a family with kids. She seems to love them!! She did get a bit protective of our picnic table when we tied her up during our lunch. She barked at passerby's, but I actually appreciate a little protectiveness in a dog, especially when kids are around. She sat in my daughter's lap in the car to and from the park very happily.

; Basil and her friend Paprika were found as strays in Yolo County. They failed their temp test for being fearful. Paprika is a very sweet girl who will need some TLC to help her adjust. Will know more soon!

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.
