Review for National Mill Dog Rescue, Colorado Spgs, CO, USA
We adopted our little Maltese, Sadie, in May of 2018 and we are so happy we did! NMDR went out of their way to accommodate us, and the adoption and trip back went smoothly. I could see right from the start that when Sadie was in her carrier for the trip, she seemed "resigned" that she was confined, and was completely quiet the entire way. That is an example of the emotional damage these dogs show--complete resignation to their fate. The reality is that this little dog was THRILLED to be set free from her carrier and couldn't stop exploring her new surroundings and could not get enough of the numerous soft beds around the house. She was completely opposite of the little dog who seemed to have given up on life, since she spent over nine years in a cage making puppies for inhumane large scale breeders, who should be charged with animal abuse if this country had any real laws that protect dogs. NMDR has rescued over 13,000 dogs now, which is both wonderful and sad--sad because there should be no tired, sick, damaged, spent and unwanted dogs in dog mills across the country. These dogs should not be overseen by the USDA, because they are NOT livestock. They should not be living in wire cages, drinking from rabbit waterers, which end up rotting their teeth because they don't ever get enough water to wash their food down (the cheapest food imaginable, of course). And the list goes on--no health care, no protection from the elements, no love, no nothing. Dog mills should be illegal, period, but until they are, NMDR will do what it can do accept every unwanted dog the dog millers want to dispose of.
