The Mission of Milo's Sanctuary, Inc.
Milo's Sanctuary is a no-kill special needs cat rescue. We take in those that have physical disabilities, seniors, have been abused, injured or are suffering from a terminal illness. These special needs often prevent them from being adopted into a “normal” home. For these cats, we provide a Lifetime Care Program by giving them a permanent home and any medical care that they may need to live out the remainder of their natural lives in a safe, loving and healthy environment. To ensure that these cats receive everything they need for quality of life we have a sponsorship program where anyone can sponsor one of our Lifetime Care Cats.
Our cats come to us from all types of situations, such as local shelters (rescued on their last day), displaced animals from homes that can no longer keep them or those that are sick, injured, abused or abandoned.
It is our ongoing life saving mission to continue our program of rescuing special needs cats and kittens and to ensure that the cats currently in our Lifetime Care Program receive all necessary medical care throughout their lives.
We strongly believe in education as a tool to combat the abandonment of cats that result from their owner’s lack of understanding and fear of dealing with their cats’ special needs. To further this end, we have links on our website to information regarding special needs cats and their care, as well as offering personal helpful advice and handouts through our website, Facebook Page, and when we attend any animal event.
When we have available funds, we assist individuals with the high cost of veterinarian care and help those individuals to keep their cats, instead of abandoning them due to the lack of funds. Our goal is to continue to rescue special needs cats and to support the local community through education, financial aid, referrals and general understanding of all cats, especially those with special needs.
