The Mia Foundation

Because We All Matter

Our Story


The Mia Foundation was developed to give animals born with birth defects a fighting chance.
So many animals born with birth defects, such as cleft palates or missing limbs, are euthanized at birth. With a little work and a lot of love, these animals give back so much more than anyone could possibly imagine. All they need is a chance!

A tiny little Chihuahua named Mia was the inspiration behind The Mia Foundation. She was born with a cleft palate and it was suggested at birth that she be euthanized. She was given a chance and in return gave much love, hope and inspiration to many people all over the world! The Mia Foundation ~ If they are born, they deserve a chance to live!

To give animals born with birth defects the chance at life which the very much deserve.
