I've tried twice to write a review here too, but it was deleted. Just shows you the commitment those of us who support NMDR are willing to make, to keep on trying to make it work. That's how it is with NMDR. I've never met such a dedicated and hard working group of people. It truly is what is best for their dogs. They are fiercely protective of their dogs and not just anybody can adopt from them. Of course, that rubs some people the wrong way, which is why I suspect there are some negative comments here. In truth though, there is nothing they won't do to give the dogs they rescue the best chance for a normal life. Despite medical expenses that have to be through the roof (since every dog rescued has many medical needs due to the neglect they've suffered), their adoption fees are reasonable. They pay all vet expenses for the dogs in foster care, and there is no shortchanging the needs. For adopters, they have a dog behaviorist available to answer questions and offer classes to help with the unique needs of traumatized mill dogs and their unique needs. There is also a Facebook page for adopters to share success stories and ask questions - just having a support system can be so important for those who are new to the needs and joys of mill dogs. I have adopted 2 dogs from them and am fostering 1. This organization has educated me, has supported me, and inspired me. It is deserving of the highest rating, bar none. This is a nonprofit that puts it all there for the dogs in their care. There is not a selfish, greedy, or self-serving person in the whole organization. Instead, you'll find people full of love, commitment, and selflessness. Perfect example - one volunteer has taken on a new foster with medical needs that require near constant attention. He did this while in the middle of moving homes, which we all know is a huge and stressful job.
