The AWLFC was established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2001. What began as a grassroots group of concerned animal lovers has grown into the county’s largest all-volunteer, no-kill animal rescue and welfare organization. In October 2009, the AWLFC opened our first adoption center and office at 1202 East Patrick Street, Suite 13A, in Frederick, MD. This office serves as the headquarters for all AWLFC activities, including cat and dog adoptions, our monthly spay/neuter clinic, education and training sessions, and fund-raising events.

Our philosophy is that every animal deserves a loving home, and that euthanasia is neither an acceptable nor humane form of managing animal populations.

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.

contentedcritters-mn

We are a volunteer-run organization dedicated to the rescue, care, and relocation of animals in need.  The majority of the animals coming through our doors are dogs and cats. However, no injured creature that is not in another shelter’s contract area is ever turned away. Many of these animals are found abandoned. Some have been rescued from bad situations and some were simply dropped off by owners who can no longer care for them.
Regardless of breed, age or situation, we provide these animals with appropriate veterinary care and keep them happy and healthy until suitable loving homes can be found for them.

We rescue stray dogs from the streets, and from situations of abuse and neglect. Additionally, we rescue many of our dogs from “death row” at kill shelters in CA.

The dogs are then spayed or neutered, treated for any health problems, and rehabilitated as necessary. Our main goal is to find permanent, loving homes for all the dogs that we rescue.

Since our founding in 2010, we’ve saved over 350 lives, placing them in loving, permanent homes. We work tirelessly with shelters to rescue animals at risk of euthanasia.

We take a multifaceted approach to finding permanent, stable and loving homes for our rescued friends; they are fostered in a home environment, evaluated for temperament, and many receive basic training to make them better companions for the people who will ultimately take them home.
