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've twice tried to post a lengthy review here but this site has deleted them! Bottom line, WONDERFUL ORGANIZATION, WONDERFUL PEOPLE, AMAZING STORIES OF DOGS GETTING A CHANCE AT A LIFE WITH A LOVING FAMILY AFTER YEARS OF ABUSE AND NEGLECT IN A PUPPY MILL! Please ignore the ramblings of some disgruntled, vindictive people on this site - this organization is and always will be ALL ABOUT THE DOGS!!! I've worked with them for years and believe wholeheartedly in their mission and their goal to end puppy mills and give these dogs an opportunity to become beloved pets. Where does the money go?? - TO THE DOGS. Rescuing, feeding, medical care, warm beds, clean kennels, blankets, treats and lots of socializing by scores of volunteers who believe in the mission like I do. I honestly cannot say enough about this incredible group of people who have done so much to help so many dogs!
