Rescue begins with you!

Rescue – Adoption – Sanctuary

Currently we are doing pet adoptions by appointment only due to Covid-19. Please complete a pet adoption application before requesting an appointment. We appreciate your patience and thank you for adopting a homeless pet.

Our pet adoption program adopts out approximately 1,500 dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens each year! We could not do this without your generous donations and volunteer hours. Thank you for your continued support of the animals at the Milo Foundation.

The Milo Foundation is an established 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill organization providing a second chance for homeless pets throughout California.

We rescue dogs and cats from high-kill animal shelters and adopt them to loving homes best suited to provide lifetime care. We offer sanctuary to those pets that are not ready for adoption and educate the public about responsible pet guardianship, including spay/neuter.

Bert & Evie – on their Way to Healing

Too many animals wind up in the shelters because they are broken or sick, in need of critical care well beyond what the shelters can provide. Bert and Evie don’t know each other, but they both found themselves at the same shelter, and in a similar plight. Bert has a serious problem with his salivary glands which will likely require surgical […]

If you are given an evacuation order, you may need to leave with very little notice. Being prepared for an evacuation order with a pre-packed human “Go Bag” […]

Volunteer opportunities are constantly changing as we grow and develop new programs but what doesn’t change is your impact on our homeless animals!

Our Sanctuary

Milo Sanctuary for Dogs and Cats

The Milo Sanctuary is home to approximately 200+ animals at any given time, mostly dogs and cats whom need time for rehabilitation or socialization, but also a variety of farm animals. The Sanctuary is located on 283 acres in Mendocino County, offering lots of room for rescued animals to run and play.

Our Sanctuary animals are often with us for long periods of time. Your financial support will help a Sanctuary animal thrive. Sponsor an animal, or if you can’t decide, support the Sanctuary. Donate today!

You're one of us! Subscribe to Milo for the latest updates.
