UPDATE: Jimmy was neutered, had three teeth pulled, and had the rest cleaned. Thank you everyone who donated to this wonderful little man. Jimmy is now ready for his forever home.;

; Jimmy is a super-star senior! This poor guy was found running stray, in Richmond, after one of our big winter storms. Skin and bones, hair falling out, with horribly sunburned ears, it was obvious that this fine, little fellow was an outdoor dog. He went to the shelter - where nobody claimed him - and his time was running out. Milo intervened, but like the rest of his body, his teeth have been neglected. We would appreciate donations to help this sweet guy start his second lease on life.

; *Foster Notes* 4/27/17 Jimmy is a sweet and gentle dog. He was great with my terrier mix and; did fine meeting new dogs and people at Berkeley Marina and Pt. Isabel. I don't think he's had any training, but he's a quick study. He does need help to learn to stop marking in the house (now that he is neutered, it might stop). He warmed up quickly and loves to snuggle and sit on laps. He sleeps; through the night, naps in his crate and loves playing with stuffed animals. I adore the little guy and hope he finally finds the loving home he so deserves.'

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.
