On September 11, 2010, Milo was surrendered to the BC SPCA Shuswap Branch by his original owner due to allergies. He stayed at the shelter for many months, however no one seemed interested in taking him home. He was then transferred to the BC SPCA West Vancouver Branch on the Drives for Lives program, in the hope that he would have a better chance at adoption. Finally on June 16, 2011, Milo was adopted. His new caregivers wrote to share an update on his transition into his forever home.
Dear BC SPCA,
We do foster care for 3 dog organizations, and always have more than one dog in the house. We had lost our old cat Smarties, and were not sure we would add another cat to our family. A friend, who also volunteers at the W. Van. SPCA told us about Milo, and that he was the cat for us.
It took us a few weeks to make it to the SPCA, but in the end did, and of course, Milo came home with us. Milo adjusted immediately to his canine brothers and sister, and made himself right at home. He now sleeps with us, after walking on the Golden Retriever to get to his place, and has become the protector of our property. He is indeed home, and we are so happy that he is part of our family.
Thank you to the staff at West Vancouver SPCA for giving him a place to live for the 2 months before he came home.
