My story

LOCATION: SANCTUARY IN WILLITS, CA.

Hieronymus came to us in '13 as a stray pig that had needed rescue from a shelter. He found a family very quickly, but due to circumstances beyond their control, they recently lost their country home and are no longer able to keep him.
We had initially thought that he was a pot bellied pig, but as he matured he grew to look more like mini-pig mix of sorts. Hieronymus likes his back scratches and to eat fruit from your hand, but he is not the kind of pig that can live in the house or go for walks with a harness. He is not a mean guy and does not bite, but can be a bit crotchety and would likely preffer an adult home.
The ideal place for him would be another country home where he can just be a pig, preferably with other livestock that he can be friends with. He has not yet lived with other pigs to our knowledge, but he hung out with the family cat and also enjoyed the company of a neighboring donkey. Please send interest in Hieronymus to sanctuary@milofoundation.org

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.
