Featured Animals
Featured Animals are often those overlooked in the past that may have been at Milo a long time,
either at our Sanctuary, in Foster Care or at MPR.

These animals are now more mature, issues have mellowed and they have love to give.
Please take another look!

Featured Critter: DEXTER

Breed: Shepherd - Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix  -  Gender: Male
Age: 3 yrs. 4 mo. (est), Milo ID: 28161
Current Location: MPR


DEXTER Merry Pitmas ! All of our pitties ( minus pups ) are free to good homes for the month of December !

Dexter is a playful, active fellow, engaging and super affectionate and silly. Dexter loves his people & ALL people- he makes friends very easily! He is a want-to-be lap dog, a lover and a leaner, and very affectionate. His "happy place" is with people, a real sweetheart! He probably would do best in a home without small animals or chickens.

Dexter is attentive, intelligent, responsive to training and wants to please. He would do best as the only dog in the household. He is dog selective, but when he meets the right dog, he loves to play. Does best with dogs his size and age. Not a dog park dog.

We think he will make an excellent family dog for any single adult, adult couple or family with children roughly 8 & older. He is crate trained and house trained, and has great recall once he knows you.

Meet your new best friend, Dexter, today at Milo Point Richmond!

Featured Critter: DALLAS

Breed: Shih Tzu - Poodle Mix  -  Gender: Male
Age: 5 yrs. 9 mo. (est), Milo ID: 28089
Current Location: MPR


DALLAS Dallas is a super sweet boy with TONS of personality! He first arrived at Milo in 2016 after coming from a high kill shelter in Avenal. When he first arrived he was shy and reserved, but now that he's opened up and has built confidence he's ready for his perfect home.

Dallas can be wary of strangers at first. He prefers men over women but does have female staff he likes here at Milo. Dallas would do best in an adult only predictable home. Dallas’ initial wariness will need a patient owner who can provide him stability and routine showing him that everything is okay. Once he gains confidence, he loves to go on walks & hikes and allows himself to be rocked to sleep in your arms.

Dallas is not fond of loud noises or sudden movements. He is house-trained and rides well in a car. His BFF is staff member Alex. Come in and ask him about this little charmer today! See photos in for pics of how sweet he can be.

Featured Critter: DEIRDRE

Breed: Domestic Long Hair   -  Gender: Female
Age: 6 yrs. 5 mo. (est), Milo ID: 27909
Current Location: Foster


DEIRDRE, MAEVE and SEAMUS Sadly the owner of these three lovely cats has passed away, and finding them a loving home together is now urgent! We hope a loving home will take these three lovely creatures in for foster or adoption - fees are totally negotiable - we want them to have love, care and comfort - they have lots to give!

Deceased guardian's bio: Deirdre is approximately 6 years old. She and her sister, Maeve, began hanging out together in my backyard in Fresno, when they were between 8 months and a year old, according to my vet. I started feeding them and her sister came into my house. Deirdre eluded me for about 6 months, when I found her hiding in my detached garage. She and her sister were reunited and Seamus immediately accepted her. She and Seamus particularly love playing with each other. She, as her sister, had been fixed, so I also assume that they were left behind when her prior owner moved.

Deirdre is more reserved around people, than Seamus or Maeve. However, she will seek attention from visitors, but will not compete with the other two cats. She is very affectionate with me and the other two cats.

She has no significant health issues, except gum disease, which was dealt with by my vet. She eats one can of Friskies wet food daily. She could lose a bit of weight, but this has been hard to monitor, due to the other two cats' presence at feeding time. She is an indoor cat, as my vet recommended, Since moving to Oakland in 2014, she is cared for by the vets at VCA Vet. Center in Oakland. I have her complete medical records since she came to me.

Featured Critter: MAEVE

Breed: Domestic Long Hair   -  Gender: Female
Age: 6 yrs. 5 mo. (est), Milo ID: 27908
Current Location: Foster


MAEVE, DEIRDRE and SEAMUS Sadly the owner of these three lovely cats has passed away, and finding them a loving home together is now urgent! We hope a loving home will take these three lovely creatures in for foster or adoption - fees are totally negotiable - we want them to have love, care and comfort - they have lots to give!

Deceased guardian's bio: Maeve is approximately 6 years old. She and her sister, Deirdre, started hanging out together in my backyard in Fresno, when they were between 8 months and a year old, according to my vet. I started feeding them and she came into my house. Seamus, immediately accepted her and they have been close ever since. She had been fixed, so I also assume that she and her sister were left behind when her prior owner moved.

Maeve loves people and competes with Seamus for attention from anyone who enters the house, along with attention from me. She is extremely attached to Seamus and her sister. As with Seamus, she plays with and cleans the other two cats.

She has no significant health issues, except gum disease, which was dealt with by my vet. She eats one can of Friskies wet food daily. She and my other cats are indoor cats, as my vet recommended.

Featured Critter: SEAMUS

Breed: Snowshoe   -  Gender: Male
Age: 8 yrs. 7 mo. (est), Milo ID: 27907
Current Location: Foster


SEAMUS, MAIVE and DEIRDRE Sadly the owner of these three lovely cats has passed away, and finding them a loving home together is now urgent! We hope a loving home will take these three lovely creatures in for foster or adoption - fees are totally negotiable - we want them to have love, care and comfort - they have lots to give!

Deceased guardian's bio: Seamus is a very loving Snowshoe, approximately 8 years old. The day after I had to put down my dog, Seamus ran up to my front door. He immediately circled my ankles and ran inside when I opened the door. He apparently knew there was an open space and he was going to take it. He was fixed, so I assumed that he was abandoned by a prior owner. Seamus loves people, showering affection on anyone who enters the house. He needs human attention on a regular basis. He’s extremely attached to my other two cats, regularly cleaning and playing with them. All four of us sleep together nightly. He has had no significant health issues except gum disease, which my vet has dealt with. He eats one can of Friskies wet food per day, and is an indoor cat, as the vet recommended. I have his complete medical records since he came to me.

This is a very handsome Snowshoe, and he and his two best girlfriends make a lovely, bonded trio. Due to special circumstances, they are looking for a home TOGETHER! They are gorgeous, delightful, well cared for beings who love each other and their mom, and it is her wish that they be adopted to a loving home as a family unit. They are affectionate sweethearts.

Featured Critter: TAHITI AND DAPPLE

Breed: Domestic Short Hair   -  Gender: Female
Age: 8 mos. (est), Milo ID: 27583
Current Location: Foster


TAHITI AND DAPPLE Tahiti is in a wonderful foster home with another small kitten named Dapple. They immediately bonded and have helped each other become more comfortable, happy and playful! They would love to find a home together. Please email info@milofoundation.org if you are interested in adopting this sweet duo!

*Foster Notes* " Tahiti is a sweet little thing. Her vision is limited but that doesn’t stop her from chasing toys and playing with her brother. She’s a little shy around people but getting better every day. There’s something about her cute little face that just makes people smile!"

Featured Critter: BENNY

Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback - Otterhound Mix  -  Gender: Male
Age: 2 yrs. 1 mo. (est), Milo ID: 27305
Current Location: Sanctuary


BENNY Benny is great with all ages of people and dogs. He passed his cat test here in Milo but dogs should always be monitored initially in the home with cats.

Benny can sit on command. He's fine eating around other dogs, does not bark, loves to run, likes napping and hanging out and loves playing in the water.

Benny would be best living with another playful, happy dog! He will thrive in an active home with someone who works from home or who has the time to and resources to provide doggie daycare and other activities when not at home. He lived at the Milo Sanctuary happily playing with other dogs for a few months.

****************

Lovely boy, an easy going charmer. Dog friendly, co-housed with and plays well with other dogs, big and small....good on leash, on the wide-eyed and meek side, but a happy, willing fellow eager to learn and to be loved! Athletic build, a great hiking and walking companion - likely up for a run as well!

Benny is a bit shy, but gently solicitous and interested in the world around him, and people, and dogs.... he has a pretty red sable coloring, big feet, and strong athletic build. More soon on Lucky Benny!

$450 adoption fee.

Featured Critter: DULCE

Breed: Domestic Short Hair   -  Gender: Female
Age: 8 yrs. 8 mo. (est), Milo ID: 26642
Current Location: Foster


DULCE Dulce is currently in foster at Kitty Charm School where she is very content but she needs a real home! She would love to find a home with a kind person or two, a lap and no other cats! Dulce hates other cats! We don't know what happened in her past - but there is no getting her over her great disdain for anything feline - dogs are tolerable... She is looking for a calm, quiet home without children and as the only cat. If you have any interest in adopting or fostering this beautiful lady please fill out an application, or stop by Kitty Charm School in Mill Valley. *Foster Notes* "She is super sweet here but definitely needs someone cat savvy. She needs to be an indoor cat so she doesn't fight with other cats. She is PERFECT with her litter box and has never had a single issue." *Return Notes* 1/16/18 "Dulce loves attention especially from men. Complete lap cat, would take this all day. Can be a little feisty, quick to pick up paws. She is a real lap cat that would love to be petted all day."

Dulce can be a great companion, and needs a home. Adoption fee waived for the right situation as long as someone can afford to care for her.

Featured Critter: SADIE

Breed: Border Collie Mix  -  Gender: Female
Age: 8 yrs. 7 mo. (est), Milo ID: 23970
Current Location: Sanctuary


SADIE *Foster Notes* 11/6/17 "Sadie is a loving girl. She can be protective, anxious at times when around new people and other dogs. Good spirited, will bark at people knocking on door, walking down stairs, and strangers. She does not bark aggressively and is super friendly up close."

Sadie is a sensitive lady.... protective and cautious. She is happiest when out playing fetch with a Frisbee or a ball - truly in her element. She is protective of her home and people.

More soon on this often charming but sometimes worried girl.

Featured Critter: RUTHIE

Breed: German Shepherd Dog Mix  -  Gender: Female
Age: 13 yrs. 8 mo. (est), Milo ID: 8868
Current Location: Sanctuary


RUTHIE Ruthie deserves a lovely retirement home, give a senior a chance!! Special Senior Sanctuary Dogs are available for a 100% negotiable/flexible adoption fee... a loving home is what they need and what we want for them!

At this point in her life Ruthie is a fairly mellow senior, a loving and happy girl, who gets along well with other dogs, although would prefer a male canine friend to live with if she had her pick. She is a lovely old dame and friendly if not a tad distracted, with most people right, but can bark at strangers upon first meeting through a fence. She is a loving, tail-wagging gal for whom we are looking for a loving, adult home (no young kids) with another canine companion if possible. With a good amount of people time she would do fine as an only dog.

Ruthie is the kind of dog that will bond and be a bit protective, we feel that now she is an older dog, she has mellowed and would not bond as severely and feel she needs to protect, which she has done in her colorful past! She has been co-housed at our sanctuary with various dogs and done well and for an old girl is still quite active and engaged - though her hearing is not so great now. She tolerates brushing happily, loves attention and going on easy walks, a great dog for a senior! She is a lovely gal who deserves to spend the rest of her life in the comfort of a loving home! And for a qualified senior Ruthie's adoption fee can be waived.

Please send applications and inquiries to sanctuary@milofoundation.org and copy info@milofoundation.org
