National Mill Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in the state of Colorado.
We have been in existence since February of 2007 when Theresa rescued our founder, Lily, from Reedgate Kennels in Missouri. When Theresa got to the auction, Lily was sitting up in the back of her cage in the dark barn than she lived in. Lily was sitting on her back legs and rubbing her stomach with her front paws and looking Theresa square in the eyes and asking her for help.
Theresa knew that she couldn’t leave the auction without Lily and said, “We may have come 800 miles for one dog.” That wasn’t the case as Lily was worn out, with a rotted jaw and mammary tumors along her entire left side. She brought 40 dollars. I wouldn’t sell her for a million dollars. She’s brought joy and love to my life from the day she got here.
On that day National Mill Dog Rescue began. We have pledged to put an end to the cruelty and evil of the commericial breeding industry. (Industry! Indeed.) Also more commonly known as puppy mills. We do this by educating the public about puppy mills and letting them know that buying dogs in a pet store is wrong. There are many reputable breeders and shelters from which to get dogs.
We are three on the board of directors and have over 100 volunteers, without which we couldn’t do what we do. Nor could we survive without our genorous contributors which make this all possible.
So I say THANK YOU to all our supporters now and in the future.
