We know there are so many well-meaning people who want our animals, but we
must ask you to please respect our protocols to enable us to continue to help the
animals and get them into homes one at a time. We will do our best to maintain a
safe place for everyone and also be able to keep saving lives. Our brave skeleton
crew is taking care of the animals and helping clients, and we want everyone to
stay healthy! We are doing our best to keep our website up-to-date under these
trying circumstances.

    Thank You and Please Be Patient.

Please Note: Special access restrictions are in effect during Shelter-In-Place
orders. No children or those without an appointment are allowed in the
Adoption Center.



Before meeting an animal:
   1) Go to a link above or the Adopt a Pet tab on this website to find the animal
       you wish to meet and note the location and status in the bio.
   2) Find a 2-page canine or feline adoption form at the Adopt a Pet tab on our
Download the application form and complete it with the selected
       animal's name and Milo ID number.
   3) Email your application to info@milofoundation.org, so our staff may receive
       and review it, then follow the steps below based on the animal's location.

  • If the animal's location is in FOSTER CARE, email us your completed application
    with "MEET AND GREET REQUEST" and the animal's name and ID number in
    the subject line. After our staff approves your application, you will receive an
    email connecting you with the foster and explaining the Meet and Greet process.

    You will receive instructions after your application is approved.

  • Only if the animal is currently at MILO POINT RICHMOND (NOT in foster care or at the Milo Sanctuary), and only if your APPLICATION IS APPROVED BY OUR STAFF
    may an appointment to meet the animal be arranged
    Please send us your application, but DO NOT attempt to schedule an appointment until
    our staff contacts you to confirm approval. Unapproved appointments will be canceled.
    If you receive an appointment, you must bring your recently completed adoption or
    foster application with you.

  • If the animal's location is our SANCTUARY east of Willits, email your completed application to sanctuary@milofoundation.org to make arrangements to foster
    or adopt it.
    Include the animal's name and Milo ID number in the subject line of
    the email. Many animals living at the Sanctuary have behavioral
    issues of one
    sort or another. But in the right home, they will make great companions!



Find a foster application form on this website at You Can Help!/Foster.
Email us your foster form with "I WANT TO FOSTER" and the chosen animal's
name and Milo ID in the subject line. Do not contact us again. Please wait to hear
from us as w
e are inundated with inquiries. Allow at least a week for a response.




A Milo Update from our
Founder and Director Lynne Tingle

Dear friends of the animals - and Milo,

Milo is doing our best to bring you some unconditional love, happy diversions,
oblivious joy and reasons to carry on, to play and to get outside with a buddy
who is safe to hug! We care about the safety of our staff, volunteers, fosters
and adopters and have taken measures to keep people and our animals safe,
and we ask that ALL who wish to foster or adopt maintain social distancing.

During this difficult time we have pared down our animal care team, and we
are struggling financially. The future of Milo is at risk and we hope those who
can will MAKE A DONATION now!

We are updating our adoptable animal biographies and bringing many down
from our Sanctuary to Milo Point Richmond!

Here is Layla, and CLICK HERE to see more.




Wishing you and yours safety and good health,



Please look at our Wish Lists
to see if there might be something
you can help us with!

Between the Milo Sanctuary

the Milo Point Richmond Adoption Center

and foster homes, we care for and feed
more than 350 animals EVERY DAY!

Thank you!

Remember to plan ahead for your animals, should they outlive you. 
Don’t leave them to the unknown, if family or friends can’t keep them.

MOCHI now OSITO *Foster Notes* "Osito is great, we love him! He is potty trained and loves going on long walks. He’s truly a lover- all he wants to do is snuggle and be petted. Loves belly rubs, slow scratches, fast scratches, really any form of attention and he’s yours.

Osito seems good with other small dogs, but we haven’t tested him much with the quarantine. He doesn’t seem to be excited about birds (or chickens) but is very interested in squirrels. We would not recommend him with small kids because he does give a warning snap of his teeth if you do something he doesn’t like, ie brush him on his lower back. When he sees us grab the leash he gets excited and smacks his teeth - he is very good at “sit” when he knows a walk is coming. Overall, we adore him and hope he finds the perfect lap to snuggle in. "

This sweet boy is playful with other small dogs and has been living at our Sanctuary with one o two or many - he's one of the good ones! Osito needs a yard and activity in an adult home. needs to run so walks are a must, loves to chew on toys and such. Fetches a ball and anything else thrown.

Best suited for adults that don't live in a social epicenter as he can develop guarding issues and be a bit of an ankle biter. He needs space and respect, consistency, exercise, he is an adorable, enthusiastic little guy who could be great in the right home! He'd do great as a second dog or solo with a fair amount of attention - he is a good little guy, but has been feisty in the past -possessive of his things and space.
