The Milo Foundation (Point Richmond, California 94801) was named after an Australian Shepherd. Milo was five weeks old when Lynne Tingle discovered that her puppy was both deaf and blind. Despite concerns from friends and family, Lynne was determined to give Milo a good life.

It was a learning process for both Milo and Lynne, his “seeing eye person.” Lynne developed a series of taps to communicate with Milo. A tap on the left or right flank would instruct Milo which direction to go. And a tap on the rear meant ‘stop.’ In the park, Milo’s feet read the ground like Braille, where he bounded around in circles with his nose in the air, barking with joy.

Given a chance to live, Milo became a happy, beloved dog. The experience with Milo led Lynne to learn about other animals who needed a chance – abandoned and stray dogs and cats who fill city shelters – which led to the founding of the sanctuary in August of 1994: The Milo Foundation.

After a full and happy life, Milo passed away in August of 1998. He was the perfect spirit and namesake for a sanctuary dedicated to saving the lives of creatures who deserved, like Milo, a chance at a good life.

The Golden State German Shepherd Rescue (Alameda, California 94501) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization. We are a small group of volunteers and have no paid staff, facility, office or kennel. Our volunteers are located mainly in the San Francisco Bay Area.

goldenstategermanshepherdrescue-ca

Our mission is to help German Shepherd Dogs in life-threatening situations, and to educate the public about this highly intelligent and versatile breed. Most of the German Shepherd Dogs we rescue come from the Northern and Central Valley regions of California .

Rescue is not simply taking animals out of shelters; it is also providing that animal with the opportunity through health care, behavioral and emotional assistance, to live out its life in a caring and loving home. Our goal is to find loving new homes for German Shepherd Dogs who are in need of a second chance; most of them have come from animal shelters in Northern California, where they have run out of time.

While we welcome the challenges that rescue work provides, it is not work we can do alone. We need help in the form of people and financial resources. Please consider joining us as a volunteer, a donor, or in any other manner in which you feel you can help. Your participation will be greatly appreciated by us, but – more importantly – by the dogs waiting for our help.
