Dogs & Cats Forever (Fort Pierce, Florida 34981) is a no-kill animal sanctuary that was organized in 1988 for the purpose of building and maintaining a shelter for homeless dogs and cats on the Treasure Coast.

Our shelter was founded on the principle of trying to find good, adoptable and loving homes for the animals, and help stop the killing of over 75,000 abandoned animals in southern Florida.

With the increase of Florida’s population so too has come an increase of unwanted animals. Any pet not adopted will have a safe and permanent home at our facility for the duration of its natural life.

Lake Shore Animal Shelter (Chicago, Illinois 60068) was founded in 1966 by Dr. Lloyd Preshun, a prominent small-animal veterinarian on Chicago’s north side. Dr. Preshun’s dream was to create the first animal shelter run as nearly as possible along the same basis as human adoption agencies.

Over the last 15 years, the life-saving mission Lake Shore helped to develop has gained momentum, as more people choose adoption, and as public awareness of the needless euthanasia of millions of animals has penetrated the conscience of the nation. As the number of rescue organizations in northern Illinois continues to grow, Lake Shore’s mission has continued to evolve, concentrating on saving older animals, animals with special needs, and other “harder-to-adopt” pets. Due to the particular needs of these dogs, most of our adoptable animals are now housed and cared for by our trained volunteers in a network of foster homes.

We are also working with other rescue organizations in under-served areas, most notably Southern Illinois, where the needless euthanasia of many loving, healthy dogs and cats continues largely unabated.

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.
