An open invitation to families, individuals, and the general community...

On Saturday, September 13, Milo's Sanctuary, Inc will sponsor and host “Walk a Mile in our Paws,” in Arcadia, California at the Arcadia Masonic Lodge, located at 50 W. Duarte Rd.

The first of more planned events of its type, this “Multi-cat-ural” convention and special needs cat show will be open to the general public from 10 am to 4 pm. This event will provide a rare opportunity for all who have an interest in and devotion to special needs cats, ie; cats with rare, uncommon and both treatable and non-treatable physical/medical conditions. Event activities will include a special needs cat show, kid's events, vendors, a raffle, a silent auction, food, special guests, forums, and sponsors. There will be a variety of cats available for adoption, all up to date on required vaccinations, in optimum health, simply in need of caring, loving homes. Several other southern California rescue groups will also be in attendance at this event.

Milo's has been on the forefront of special needs cat rescue for the past ten years, regularly intervening in circumstances which would otherwise result in the untimely euthanasia of unwanted cats, cats with disabilities and similar circumstances which would preclude them from finding forever, loving and caring homes. A 501 c 3 California non-profit organization, Milo's will partner with seven Southern California rescue groups in staging this event. Milo's Sanctuary is located in Burbank, California, and is under the auspices of Michele Hoffman.

Ms. Hoffman is a firm, committed believer in a second chance for disadvantaged or disabled cats. Old age, blindness, deafness, deformities, missing limbs, in some instances, a missing eye are a few of the challenges facing Milo's and Ms. Hoffman on a day to day basis. She steadfastly refuses to compromise in such instances, instances where certain death or euthanasia would be clearly inevitable for cats either in shelters, or surrendered by owners no longer able to or interested in caring for them.

“When I started rescuing seriously 15 years ago I saw the special-needs cats being overlooked at shelters and adoption events,” said Michele. “That’s when I knew my life’s work would be saving these special-needs souls.“
