Review for National Mill Dog Rescue, Colorado Spgs, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered at this organization for 2 years. I find this rescue extremely organized and prepared to hit the road at a moments' notice. It is all about the dogs. I supervise the cleaning crew on Sundays and have met and enjoyed working with a great group of people. All of us have a sense of pride in how clean the kennel is when we are done. Every week there seems to be new volunteers joining the group. We work hard for approx 4 hours and then we grab a group of dogs to go to a "puppy party" in the socializing room after cleaning! By the way, I have never seen anyone pulling a dog along. If the dog is not leash trained to where he/she can walk on their own, we simply pick up the dog. We do as little as possible to traumatize the dogs when they are in our care. I have come in contact with many wonderful volunteers who genuinely care about the dogs. Their medical care is absolutely the best! We have great vets helping us and if they can't solve the issue, the dogs see a specialist. I personally this past weekend took a french poodle with eye problems to Denver to see an animal eye specialist (whom has performed eye surgery on a tiger & lion from Denver's zoo). Another dachsund came in with a damaged spinal cord and just this past week had close to $4000 in surger and is now resting comfortably in a foster home. I personally have adopted 2 dogs from this rescue and have nothing but great praise for their kindness and concern for the dogs as well as their professionalism. I invite Anyone who would like to learn more about this wonderful organization to come join me on Sunday mornings and I'll show you how it's done!!!! You will be glad you came!
