Mission:

To rescue, rehabilitate and rehome discarded breeding dogs and to educate the general public about the cruel realities of the commercial dog breeding industry. National Mill Dog Rescue was established in February 2007, in honor of a forgiving little Italian Greyhound named Lily. Theresa Strader, NMDR’s Founder, rescued Lily from a dog auction in Missouri. Prior to that day, Lily had spent the first seven years of her life as a commercial breeding dog, a puppy mill mom. Determined that her years of living in misery would not be in vain, Strader started NMDR, giving a voice to mill dogs across the country.

Results:

As of December 2012 National Mill Dog Rescue has saved 6,943 puppy mill survivors.

I have adopted 2 former puppy mill dogs from the National Mill Dog Rescue. They are an AMAZING organization that have saved nearly 11,000 dogs from the deplorable conditions of puppy mills. The staff, foster families and volunteers are truly remarkable people and live by their motto, "It's all about the dogs." They do everything they can to rescue and rehabilitate the precious souls they rescue. I can't say enough good things about them. I donate every month to them because I think their work is that important. The attached photo is my first mill dog, Kiwi. This was the day after she was rescued from the puppy mill, the and the day before I found her.

One of the most organized, mobilized, and volunteers driven organization in CO. Especially in the rescue dog business, often organizational and administrative skills are sacrificed for the "Lets save one more dog" be chaotic energy that many other rescue organizations get sucked into. I hope to volunteer for them in 2016 in the Denver area.

It gives you hope seeing these precious dogs rescued from this deplorable way of providing puppies for profit at the expense of their parents. I want to cry seeing these dogs but happy they are rescued one dog at a time.

I started following NMDR after adopting a former puppy mill mama. They are dedicated, smart and oh so kind to these poor dogs. They are raising awareness and doing such a service to dogs who would have no hope.

I have volunteered for, fostered and adopted from this wonderful organization. It has been an honor to work with all of the individuals that share their time to further the cause to outlaw Puppy Mills.
This is my precious little girl, Wendy. In the Puppy Mill for 6 years and bred every 6 months. She is deaf and learned modified sign language in no time. The sweetest, funniest and most of all loving…even after all she went through. Adopt…don't shop!

I live in Canada, and I wish we had a Theresa Strader here. I am so impressed with the level of commitment to this cause by her and all of her volunteers. I will never forget Lily. These are angels on earth. They are amazing. God bless them.

Several years ago, my Mom adopted a rescue from NMDR. Since then, I have been following their relentless efforts to save the helpless and abused mill dogs. What a great organization and extraordinary group of volunteers! Because of them, I have hope that one day dog mills will be no longer exist and the cruelty and suffering of these pups will finally end.

NMDR is an awesome organization with incredible people who save the lives of countless animals from the living hell of puppy mills. Their mission is to get the dogs out of these awful places, rehabilitate and then re-home them and they do a wonderful job of this. They see things while on their rescue trips to the dog auctions and at the puppy mills that most of us would never want to see. Yet they do it for the dogs. Please support or adopt from NMDR if you are able.

National Mill is an excellent organization! They have gone on countless life saving trips to rescue as many puppy mill dogs as they can! I help them when I can and they have a great website selling items anywhere from Sigg water bottles with superheroes Teddy and Harley on them to t-shirts all benefiting the thousands of helpless puppy mill dogs.
