Milo 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. Milo provides community education and volunteer opportunites, and adoption services and sanctuary for animals until permanent homes can be found. Founded in August of 1994, the Milo Foundation has it's Sanctuary 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, and occasionally farm animals and other domestic creatures that find their way here.

Since December 2013, the Milo Foundation has had it's main office and primary adoption center located in Point Richmond, CA. Known as Milo Point Richmond (MPR) has opened up new opportunities for the Milo Foundation, with a terrific space including rooms for cats, three dog yards and a 3/4 acre dog park. Milo is saving and adopting out at least 1500 animals a year.

Milo has ample volunteer and fostering opportunities as well as extensive outreach activities, including regular Mobile Adoptions in the East Bay and Marin, and occasionally in San Francisco to meet and greet a select group of adoptable animals, many of whom are cared for in Milo foster homes.

I invite you to come visit and meet the many wonderful dogs and cats here at the Milo Foundation!

Lynne Tingle  -  Director/Founder

The mission of the Milo Foundation is to rescue adoptable at-risk animals, match them to homes best suited to provide lifetime care, rehabilitate those who need it, offer sanctuary to those who are not placed, and educate the public about responsible pet guardianship, including spay/neuter.
