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.

Please understand that if you crowd our front door you will be asked to leave.

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 working to update our adoptable animal biographies and plan to bring
many down from our Sanctuary to Milo Point Richmond!

Here are a few below, 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!

foster homes -

There are many ways volunteers
can help the animals at Milo!

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.

*I absolutely cannot believe Monica is yet to find her forever home. Since joining me, she has settled in well and her original bio is spot on. She is cautious and calm, but I have not found her to be anxious or uneasy. She really is an "old soul" type of dog — a very serene and supportive companion — which is particularly meaningful at this time.

* *I understand Monica became quite melancholic in her kennel at Milo (won't we all understand that soon) and has been "comfort eating" to cope (don't we all understand that already). BUT Her spirits are up already — she loves little runs or going on multiple shorter walks throughout the day. She is responsive, walks great on leash and hasn't batted an eye-lid as we passed vocal neighborhood dogs or passers-by.

* *Although I fit the bio of a quiet female working from home, she was warm with three male colleagues when I packed up my office. When loading the car, she was initially calm, but became unsettled/vocal the more I went back and forth. I don't plan to verify her escape-tactics or separation anxiety mentioned below. Monica really is special and will be a wonderful partner-in-crime or partner-in-calm for the right person." See the new photos of her enjoying the fosters backyard.

"Monica is a mellow, easy-going, even temperament type dog. She is cautious so will need a patient person who will let her go at her own pace. She walks great on leash and is good with kids. Monica absolutely loves women and girls; she can tolerate being around men but bonds very well with women. Once she gets to know you she will greet you with happy barks and snuggles. She enjoys belly rubs, but is sensitive to touch so her human must be patient and willing to build up the trust between them. Once she trusts you, her loyalty and love is unwavering!

She does not like being contained so no crates for her - but she can tolerate an x-pen. She can play well with other dogs after a proper introduction, and prefers to be the only dog in the home. This adventurous girl will try to go out of open windows, so she will need monitoring around the home at first. She is house-broken and will let you know if she has to go, or is uncomfortable around a particular dog or person. Excellent communicator!

Monica's ideal home would be with a woman or female couple who stays at home or is retired. The home should be quiet and peaceful.

Monica does present separation anxiety when left home alone and sometimes can be destructive when trying to get out.

**My adoption fee is one half off! Adoption fee: $150.**
