Sanctuary Update: Snickers has recently made great progress with bonding with the staff. We now feel that both she and her sister would be candidates for a very special foster or adoptive home. We do want to stress that these girls would need a very patient ad calm environment as they were dealt a very sad hand in life. They have spent a great deal of their time here at the sanctuary shut down, finding comfort with each other but we have turned a corner with them and they are now finally wagging their tails and bouncing when they see us coming, approaching us for treats and allowing gentle pets. These girls will never be social butterflies, but the fact that we have had such a break through with them gives us a glimmer of hope that they be able to find a special person who will be able to keep the momentum building and earn their trust. They would certainly need a rural and adult only home, and would do best as the only two pets in the home. Betty was formerly the more brave of the two, but Snickers is the one that has recently shown the most progress and is now helping her sister to come out of her shell now more than ever. Please email email@example.com to learn more about adopting or sponsoring these two adorable girls.
; Original bio: Snickers and her blonde sister, Betty (our names) were confiscated by the police in Merced County when their owner was put in jail, for a long time.' There were four dogs seized, all under socialized and obviously handled with a heavy hand.... We took these two sweet, shy girls. ; They are dying to feel okay to feel secure, loved and gain trust - we don't want to split them up as of yet - they really help each other and love each other - Betty is the leader of the two, Snickers follows Betty's lead. If you have dreamed about fostering a duo where you big making a huge difference, consider taking these two into your home until they are ready for adoption!

Adoption Fee Details
Dogs and Puppies
DOGS: All dogs at The Milo Foundation receive necessary veterinary care, are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and treated for parasites. Dogs over six months of age are Heartworm tested.
The adoption fee for ADULT DOGS is $300 for a male and $350-400 for females. We reserve the right to have increased fees for "special" highly desired or breed-specific dogs, as well as for those that required extraordinary veterinary care. Our Medical Fund benefits from these extra fees (half of which can be considered a tax deductible donation), so we can provide the extra care some animals need! Seniors, some harder to place dogs, and animals at the Milo Sanctuary may have lower adoption fees considered. Talk to us about this.
Chihuahuas and some other small dogs may have special incentives/lower adoption fees. There are so many of these sweet little ones dying in shelters! AND "two-for-one" deals are happily considered for Chihuahuas and some small dogs. The little ones LOVE a buddy!
The adoption fee for a PUPPY is $350-$600. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS ON PUPPY ADOPTIONS. If you return a puppy for whatever reason, your adoption fee becomes a TAX-DEDUCTIBLE donation. Certain rare circumstances may warrant a partial refund (50%). PLEASE think hard about the commitment of raising a puppy! They are fragile and demanding. They need consistency, training, time, resources and patience. They want TLC and need a firm commitment!
All puppies at The Milo Foundation receive puppy vaccinations and de-worming. They are also micro-chipped and spay/neutered. Depending on how long Milo has had the puppy and its age, it will likely require additional vaccinations and veterinary care by the adopters. Milo will often cover the next vaccine after adoption, but our suggested donation for vaccinations is $15-20, available during open hours at MPR.
No puppy should be exposed to public dog parks, trails, or areas frequented by dogs, nor should they be exposed to unvaccinated dogs, until at least three vaccinations have been given. However, we do encourage early training and ongoing, early socialization of the pups. Visits with healthy dogs, trips to your family or friends homes are encouraged! We also recommend that you enroll in puppy training classes as soon as possible! Puppies can go on walks on sidewalks in suburban and rural areas. City streets may have too much they can get into, so use good judgment.
Along with your Canine Adoption Application email, please INCLUDE THE NAME AND/OR ID NUMBER OF THE PET OF INTEREST, or the group name of the litter. Please bring a printout of your application with you when you come to meet the dog or puppy of interest. Follow up with an email and be patient! Thanks.
Adopters must be 21 years of age or older, and renters must be able to provide proof of landlord permission to keep the pet applied for in the residence. Certain breed types, sizes and puppies can be restricted. For everyone's protection, it is best to have approval in writing.
Cats and Kittens
FELINES: All cats and kittens are Leukemia tested. Cats over 6 months are also usually FIV or combo tested. All are vaccinated, have been spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and given parasite preventatives. Some young kittens are only FeLV tested, as the FIV test is inconclusive at a young age. If you are able, please consider an additional donation! Anything over $100 can be tax-deductible.
CATS (over 10 months): $125-150 sliding scale fee. Sometimes we'll give a break on a pair. We like it when bonded pairs can stay together! Senior cats, and those who have "been around the block" (are older or have been with us a long time) can be $75. These fees do not come close to covering Milo's costs, but we really want to get our adult cats into homes!
ALL CATS SHOULD BE INSIDE AT NIGHT. Our cats are not feral or outdoor cats. They are people friendly, social felines, who like the company of humans, and the safety and warmth of a cozy home!
A few of our Sanctuary cats could do well as predominantly outdoor or "barn cats." Please inquire with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, if that is your preference.
KITTENS: $150. Kittens are ideally adopted out in pairs, or to homes with a compatible feline in residence, a buddy dog, or people who are home a lot. Kittens are social, and a kitten left home alone for long hours every day can be very unhappy.... two is better!! We reserve the right to charge more on occasion. Special new arrivals listed as KITTEN OF THE WEEK are $160-200. We may consider a discount for two at times. Talk to us – we want good homes for all kitties.
ALL KITTENS MUST STAY INDOORS, until at least 8-10 months age, though can be let out for brief periods under supervision to play and stretch their limbs, chase leaves. Please do so only under safe circumstances, where they can be observed, and are away from busy streets. Cats should be given the outdoor vaccinations at a vet before becoming indoor/outdoor cats. These vaccines are Leukemia and Rabies.
