My story

***BONDED PAIR WITH GROMIT***

LONG TERM FOSTER NOTES:
"I am currently fostering Wallace and Gromit. Since I'm going to college in August, I would love to find them their forever home.

Since being with me, I have seen Wallace and Gromit go from being so fearful of everything to being curious and loving doggies. Wallace is the the most scared compared to Gromit, but he loves being around my dog Dahlia and hanging out with me when I watch tv. He's so sweet and gentle, and deserves to go to a home where he can continue to come out of his shell.

Gromit loves his snuggles in front of the fireplace. His favorite activities are hanging out in the sun and playing with his toys. Both Wallace and Gromit have grown quite fond of my big dog Dahlia. The three love playing together and going on in my front yard to bird watch.

I'm sad that I have to give them back, but I can't wait for them to come out of their shells and be loving and trusting doggies. I know the family they go to will love them and be patient with them as they start the next chapter in their life."

One of two shy brothers who came up from Bakersfield, though were not at all adoption candidates, Basically close to feral upon arrival - they had been trapped.... poor little guys, never had the kindness or comforts of a loving home, or caring people.
Wallace and Gromit need to be adopted together....slowly they are coming out of their shells, learning to trust! WE welcome volunteers to come sit with them and offer cheese, hot dogs, tasty morsels....and love!

More about this rescue

The Milo Foundation is an established 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill organization providing an alternative for homeless pets throughout California, through education, adoption services, and providing sanctuary for animals until permanent homes can be found.

Founded in August of 1994, The Milo Foundation Sanctuary is located on two hundred and eighty-three acres in Mendocino County - offering lots of room for the animals to run and play. The Milo Sanctuary animals typically (but not exclusively) are harder to adopt animals and those needing more rural type homes, such as dogs with social or behavioural challenges, feral cats, horses and other farm animals. The Milo Point Richmond Adoption Center is where the majority of our new rescue intake takes place, typically friendly, adoptable cats and dogs, puppies and kittens rescued from shelters where they were facing euthanasia. The Sanctuary is where highly active or reactive dogs can go and have plenty of space, other canine companions (if they are dog friendly) and live in a stress free environment until such time as the right adoption match can be found.

The Milo Sanctuary is what enables Milo to be a No-Kill organization. Milo brings dogs back and forth from the Adoption Center (MPR) to the Sanctuary to give dogs a break from the stresses of the kennel environment and back to MPR later to try again at being adopted. Potential adopters also do come up to the Sanctuary to adopt, by appointment.
