The Milk Drunk Foundation

Specializing in bottle/tube fed neonatal babies of all kinds.
Based out of South Florida.

Did you ever hear the phrase:

“Don’t bite the hand that feeds you”?

At The Milk Drunk Foundation we don’t believe in this. We are ok with bites, nibbles, licks and all sorts of abuse coming from our Milkies!!

We started this foundation with the philosophy that every orphaned baby deserves a fighting chance, and we are here to feed, nurture, stimulate, cuddle, and love them. Of course, with this commitment comes a fair amount of mishandling of our very own sleeping privileges, as well as our body autonomy; our Milkies RULE OUR LIVES!

Who is behind The Milk Drunk Foundation?

Michelle, a retired midwife, who has traveled around the world and lived in several continents. Michelle doesn’t find her babies; her babies find her! Michelle is a newly relocated Floridian who has quickly submerged herself in the rescue world of the fast paced and sometimes cruel, South Florida area.

Michelle wet her feet in rescue as a young girl, hiding cats and dogs in her backyard tree house and hoping her parents would never find them. As a young adult, Michelle was faced with the news that due to some medical issues, she would be unable to have biological human babies; it seemed fitting then, that she should adopt a pet (or two) to start her very own family. Fast forward a few years later, Michelle did not only adopt a couple cats; she adopted a human newborn in 2009. With the joy of adding a human sibling to her then fur babies; Michelle became pregnant with her first biological child in 2010.

It would be an understatement to say that is the highlight of her story; Michelle went onto adopt a second human newborn in 2012 and welcomed a second biological human baby in 2014. Once her human family was completed; Michelle embarked on the journey to become a surrogate mother to family friends. Did she do this once? Of course, not! Michelle and her friends welcomed womb dweller #1 in 2016 and womb dweller #2 in 2017.

After an overseas move and a return to the states, Michelle dove full force into becoming the best fur foster mom she could ever be. In 2019, Michelle began volunteering for Wonder Paws Rescue. While serving her role as a volunteer, Michelle submerged herself and took on a very active role within her chosen rescue. Michelle’s selflessness and kindness can be summarized by this featured news piece aired in 2022. returns-pricey-timepieces-owner-pays-it-forward/

Shortly after the news report aired, Michelle incorporated her very own neonate focused pet rescue; and that folks, is the beginning The Milk Drunk Foundation!
