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.

MISHKA OR MIKE Ollie is extremely smart and knows and follows several commands. He gets along very well with female dogs and most males, but would likely prefer not to live with an alpha male. He is a very interactive and friendly boy who is extremely loving and active. He was adopted by a couple that absolutely adored him, but he started having a problem in the home that they had to admit to themselves that they did not have the experience needed to help him over come it. Ollie was wonderful with people when out of the home, but started showing a relatively common herding breed trait of being uncomfortable with new people entering the home once he was settled in. In this case it was namely the mother to his adopter that he was uncomfortable with and on two occasions did nip at her heels when she came through the door. It was not a serious bite by any stretch, but enough to have the mother say that she would not come to visit while he was still in the home. The couple was heartbroken, but had never had a herding breed dog or worked with an issue like this so they had to make the tough decision to return him to us so that we could find him a better fit.

Ollie is really a great boy, who is just waiting for a home that will teach him that it is not his job or right to be in control of the comings and goings of guests. He needs to be taught that he does not have to worry and that you have it under control. If you are looking for a highly intelligent, devoted companion and feel that you have a low key home and are ready and willing to help him through this one issue, please send applications to sanctuary@milofoundation.org
