Spring Blossoms at the Sanctuary!
Hello from the Milo Foundation Sanctuary!
As we look towards the second quarter of 2021, we are excited by the possibilities opening up! It has been a pretty wild first few months, with record snows and such, and we are so grateful for our neighbors and some wonderful Milo volunteers for jumping in and helping when we had so many trees down and fences damaged and much to do. But spring is upon us, blue skies, and green emerging everywhere, making the animals and humans here so happy!
Recently we have had some lovely new rescues come in, and terrific adoptions from the Sanctuary, and we look forward to more in the near future. As will happen, one of our new dogs Whiskey, who is such a good dog, tested Heartworm positive. A sad and costly turn, but treatable, and with healing she will be on to a happy life!
We are fortunate to have some fine staff members, and a stellar volunteer caring for the Sanctuary animals, and look forward to more volunteerism in the next many months. We have lots of space – the great outdoors, streams to follow, wonderful vistas and winding paths to walk. Fence additions and repairs, moving a large enclosure for the chickens, and creating shade structures for the dogs are some of the projects to be completed. Dog walking training and socializing, cat care, and yard maintenance, vehicle maintenance and painting activities – there is always something to do around here, but also time to relax brush a dog, take dogs to the creek, and enjoy the sunshine!
If you are interested in volunteering please email firstname.lastname@example.org. At present we can accept children 14 years and older, who may volunteer accompanied by adults.
Camping is possible, but it can be quite cold at night, and there are motels in town we can recommend for a comfortable night’s sleep and a hot shower!
