This rescue is amazing. They save primarily senior dogs who've been abandoned by their owners and gives them a second chance at a happy life. Love CMDR!!

I have fostered for a variety of rescue groups, in various states, and Connor and Millie's (CMDR) is one of the best. This organization is very well run and is truly dedicated to doing what's right for the dogs in their care. CMDR goes above and beyond to insure that the dogs are well cared for and the volunteers have the necessary support to provide the dogs with whatever they need. CMDR takes in the dogs that most other rescues in Las Vegas are unwilling to take due to age or medical issues. And when behavioral issues arise that the foster is unable to manage, CMDR gets the dog the professional training it needs so it can find it's forever home. I am proud to be a part of this wonderful rescue.

I absuatly love Connor and Mollies Dog rescue (CMDR) I wanted to rescue 2 different dogs from a bad situation but I needed a rescue to back them so I got a hold of this rescue without hesitation they accepted both dogs into their rescue, had both of them checked out by a Veterinarian and found the most perfect homes for them with my approval of their new homes which I love. They are 100% percent in it for the dogs and they have their whole heart into rescuing and saving lives ❤.

I don’t even know where to begin to tell people how much this organization does for the community, animals in distress, and people in need. Let me start with the dog I adopted from Connor and Millie’s.
Thelma was found wandering the streets with a pink fleece jacket on, in the rain and the cold. She was soaked to the skin, had almost no fur, and was obviously seriously ill. Picked up by Animal Control and taken to the kill shelter, she lay untreated and unwanted for days. Her owners never stepped forward to claim her.
Nobody wanted to help this little dog who was struggling for her life. Nobody except Linda, the founder of Connor and Millie’s. Linda cared what happened to this dog. Linda cared when nobody else did. Without funding and not knowing what the vet bills might be, Linda requested this dog.
Thelma came home with me to recover and get treatment. She was diagnosed with advanced Cushing’s disease. Her future was uncertain, her outcome precarious. But Linda was determined that the disease could be controlled and was positive that Thelma would survive and recover.
Not only did Thelma survive, she thrived. She has been a member of my family for a little over a year now and is healthy, sassy, and quite the little princess.
Because her condition went untreated by her previous owner for an extended length of time, her kidneys are impaired and she may not live a normal lifespan. But she will live out whatever time she has left as healthy as possible and being very loved because somebody cared. Linda cared.
Connor and Millie’s has saved over 500 dogs, a few cats, and at least one rabbit in 2 short years. Every one of them has a heartbreaking story. Every one of them was unwanted and ignored by everyone else. Everyone except Connor and Millie’s.
Connor and Millie’s has accepted dogs with horrific injuries, dogs that the owners don’t find desirable anymore, dogs whose owners have died or who are mentally or physically unable to continue to care for them. They accept dogs on a temporary basis when the owners are sick, hospitalized, on military deployment, or are the victims of domestic violence. Every one of these dogs are placed in private foster care and are lived as members of the family.
Despite escalating bills, Connor and Millie’s provides these dogs with whatever medical care they need.
I just can’t express enough how much Connor and Millie’s means to me, and how valuable an asset they are to this community. If anyone deserves recognition, it is this great nonprofit.

I love fostering for CMDR. They take care of all health issues with urgency and compassion and do everything to find the pups the right forever home. Their team is very supportive and always on call to help with any issues, should they arise. Huge-hearted group!

As a volunteer I have seen the great things this rescue has done. They pull the dogs that have absolutely no hope and they transform them into healthy lovable dogs. This rescue is one of the great ones that does things for the right reasons and the right way. The dogs are always first and their well being is always priority. I am so proud to be a volunteer.

CMDR pulls the dogs that no-one else will- mostly seniors and medical cases. They give these dogs a second chance and get them into loving homes to spend the rest of their lives. Beginning to foster for this rescue has been so rewarding!

Can't believe it's been a year since I started fostering for the rescue, CMDR! Since then I have foster failed and adopted 4 of my precious furbabies from them. I continue to love what they stand for and all the help and support they do for the seniors and medical need dogs! The world needs more resources like this!

I love that they specialize in seniors and special needs dogs! I adopted my little girl from them and thank them everyday that she didn't stay long enough at the Animal Foundation to meet her demise!! As soon as they saw her they started networking around the group to find a foster and got her out ASAP! I like what they stand for so much that I volunteered to foster for them now and I love it!

I volunteer for this extra special organization CMDR ran by Linda Gilliam and a wonderful group of fosters:) What caught my eye is no one is left behind in this wonderful organization that takes the abused the injured and the seniors that have been left behind. There is no expense spared to save them, vet them and get them in a loving foster home to get them ready for a new life! One of our mantras is #CMDRSTRONG and I truly believe that!

I began volunteering with this organization in 2017. In January of 2018 I took in an amazing dog who needed so very much Medical. Sid had been so neglected that he had very little bottom jaw, no teeth, a severely arched back, a hernia, a very large mass on his spleen, and was seriously underweight at seven and a half pounds. I knew this little boy would be taken care of because I knew that cmdr would not fail him. They didn't fail him, and neither did we. He is now completely fixed up and part of our family. He now weighs double the weight he came in at, and is taken care of very well. No one else wanted to pull this beautiful boy because he needed so much, but cmdr believed in him. Because they believed in him he now has a beautiful full life ahead of him! I'm proud to Foster for this group and proud to be Sid's mom.

We weren't really looking to add to our family, but I saw a post on Facebook from Connor and Millie's Dog Rescue. There was a sweet-face furbaby who caught my eye. I read that she would be at an adoption event the next day so myfamily attended the event. When we got there and met this little fluffball, we realized she was a bit to shy for our household. No worries, we walked around and met some of the other furbabies. One immediately caught my attention. She had the sweetest face... and a cast. My daughter went over to her and pet this sweet baby. She got a lick right up the side of her face! We spent a little time with her and I knew this sweet baby was a perfect fit for our family. I spoke to her forster mom and filled out an adoption application. She told us that she was surrendered to a local shelter with a badly broken leg. The shelter said the leg would most likely have to be amputated. CMDR saved this precious baby and took her to an amazing doctor who was able to save her leg! I wasn't sure if they would allow us to adopt her while she was still being treated for the broken leg. But I knew she was meant to be part of our family. We got the call for a trial period, to make sure she was a good fit. I knew the moment she walked in our door that she was meant for us. She lit up and her personality came out. With a promise to continue her medical care, Lily became a permanent member of our family! Today she is happy, healthy and totally spoiled! Thanks to Connor and Millie (CMDR) our sweet baby received proper medical attention and was given a second chance at a happy life. CMDR saves lives of those cast aside. They have amazing Volunteers who give their time and love to rehab these sweet souls so that they can live the rest of their lives getting the love they deserve!

Amazing organization doing the work that no one else will do! Saving the un-savable dogs in our community! They are working tirelessly to ensure a no kill community and to allow every dog to be loved & secure through the end of life. Very well run organization and never have I seen a more effective, committed & synergistic group of primarily women, getting the job done. I applaud their work and leadership in our rescue community.

CMDR truly cares for the dogs that have been forgotten. The ones that need medical treatment and the ones that just need a little bit more time and patience.

cMDR is an amazing dog Rescue who truly rescues dogs based on need rather than how adoptive the dog may be resulting in an adoption fee. Many dogs lives a saved knowing that they will never bring an adoption fee to the rescue and will most likely live their remaining days with a loving foster home They are the true meaning of rescue!

To rescue dogs from shelter is one thing. But to rescue dogs which no other rescues would take? That’s real big love and that’s what CMDR does. We are proud to save all these helpless seniors and sicks from being euthanized at no fault of their own. Please help get this amazing nonprofit known and recognized.

We began fostering last November. Sparky was our first and we still have him running around the house, getting under foot and barking at the slightest sound outdoors. Than along came Derrick, the devil incarnate. He was so abused before we got him that we could not even pet him. He bit my wife and I the very first day. Through patience and letting him do his thing, Derrick has come a long way to being ready for adoption. We will probably have to work with him a bit longer until he is able to accept that all adults mean him harm.
I love being a foster parent for Connor and Millies Dog Rescue.

I love how this organization looks out for injured and senior dogs. Everyone is so caring and really goes out of their way to give these dogs the best chance at a happy future. It is so satisfying to see these dogs heal, both physically and emotionally, and to see them off to their forever homes. The volunteers also work very well together and make a wonderful team.

I heard about Connor and Millies Dog Rescue through a friend who said she has been fostering dogs through them and recommends I check out a dog she used to foster. I looked into it and decided to foster to potentially adopt a dog named Tilly, she wasnt the dog we were looking for but I'm so happy I got to meet and foster her. Not only did she have so much love to give, but she opened the door to me to help more dogs just like her. CMDR helps so many dogs get out of the shelter and into a home, most dogs they rescue are scared or are dogs needing medical, and I think that it takes very special person to welcome a dog, or many dogs, into their home and network for them to find a forever family. And that's what this organization is all about. Just a big group of caring and compassionate people coming together to network and help dogs in need, and I'm so happy I'm apart of it.
