National Mill Dog Rescue

I am a volunteer with NMDR and am overjoyed with the work they do giving these poor dogs a second chance in life. If not for NDMR, I know a lot of these dogs would be put down in a not-so-nice way.

I was fostering a little lab puppy that they reused, she saws only 3 months old and had bee4n mistreated. After a short time Phoenix had captured our hearts. She has become so special to me and my husband and out other dogs, our other 2 dogs are older and Phoenix is so active, she's helped give our older dogs more energy to play again. She is a God send to us, and NMDR was a God send to rescue her. Every dog they rescue becomes somebody's own little angel.

NMDR takes the impossible and makes it possible. Not only are their folks out on the road traveling the country rescuing puppy mill dogs, but those dogs are cared for by veterinarians, groomers, and rehabilitation staff to help them become pet-ready. And if that weren't enough, NMDR provides post-adoption support for behavior problems, as well. It is a fantastic organization, not just for the dogs, but for the volunteers, as well. If you are considering adopting a dog into your family, please give the pups at NMDR your attention. They are most deserving!

I have been volunteering for NMDR since 2009. It's the most classy organization with which I have ever been associated. You can rest assured that if you foster or adopt a former mill dog and you have any trouble, you won't be left alone. These folks make sure that you are supported! They are there is you need them!

As a volunteer< I have seen not only the dogs start to live a wonderful life, I have watched the people involved grow and help other causes. I started out as a fan page moderator and continue, this has helped me make many new friends and educate strangers on what puppy mills are. The tears of sorrow turn to tears of joy when these dogs are brought in to the kennel, we keep them all until they find a loving forever home!

In learning what NMDR stands for and does for the mill dog industry blew my mind. Until watching the hour long video of Lily's Legacy, I did not know how prevalent puppy mills are across the nation. The treatment of these dogs can be horrid. Not all breeders are bad. NMDR makes frequent trips to the mid west to rescue dogs from un-reputable breeders and auction houses. I became a volunteer in Feb. 2015 and have an inside look at their work. What they do for these dogs is phenominal! The programs they offer include education, adoption fairs, fund raisers, and training on how to best help the dogs. I am such a small part of this organization, but being a part of something so much bigger than I am is so very rewarding. Many other organizations are on a similar journey on spreading the word against the puppy mill industry. Kudos to all that educate the public and rescue these dogs. I am blessed to have NMDR so close to the town I call home and to be a part of this organization. SF

I first learned about National Mill Dog Rescue when I fostered a dog for a Denver area shelter. The dog had been rescued by NMDR. Since that time, I have also started to volunteer at the NMDR kennel in Peyton, Colorado, making the 135 mile roundtrip a few times a month. I also am fostering a dog for them at this time. The love and care, both medical and emotional, that these dogs get for the first time in their lives is so heartwarming and inspiring. Volunteers and staff put the animals first, and I am proud to be affiliated with such a wonderful organization.

Thousands of hours have gone in to rescuing, vetting and rehabilitating rescue dogs from puppy mills. Thousands of hours have been spent educating and creating awareness of the horrific abuse in puppy mills. Thousands have volunteered and thousands of tears have been shed in their efforts. For the work they do and for the change they bring to these dogs, offering the ability to experience joy and love for the first time in their lives, I give National Mill Dog a thousand applause! This organization is impressive and so is their facility. It is an honor that I get to call myself a volunteer. National Mill Dog Rescue is by far one of the best non-profit out their. An organization ran by mainly volunteers, your donations truly benefit the welfare of each and every dog brought to freedom!

There are just not enough words I could use when talking about National Mill Dog Rescue! Started by one woman, a mill dog named Lily and a desire to rescue and re-home discarded breeding dogs from the commercial breeding industry, NMDR is a safe haven for both the rescued dogs and the volunteers who give their time and energy to help maintain it! I went there planning on having the volunteers bring me the dogs I was interested in (not wanting to see what I thought was going to be just another shelter atmosphere) to spending 4 hours touring, asking questions, visiting with the dogs and ultimately adopting one and signing up to volunteer! I have been a proud mill dog rescue human mother to a now 5 year old Boston Terrier for 1 year now and a volunteer for almost as long. I am proud to be a part of an organization with high moral and ethical values and standards. Pride is shown in the cleanliness of the kennels, the love and care the dogs receive , and the "no expense is too much" when it comes to the health and well-being in the medical care for these dogs. Theresa, the heart and soul of National Mill Dog Rescue , isn't just the founder, the face behind the organization but works tirelessly along side each and every volunteer in any and every needed way! Thank you NMDR for being a NON PROFIT that MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

Last June I sent my 15 old golden retriever yellow lab Over the rainbow bridge. 3 weeks later I found about national mill dog rescue on the petango website. I fell in love with a dog on the site and decided to go out and see her. Little did I know how impressive this facility was that I ended up spending four hours there just looking at dogs and listening to the volunteers tell me about the facility and a wonderful woman named Theresa. After adopting my dog a few weeks later I returned and this time became a volunteer and I love every moment of it. The care and dedication that everyone involved as shown these animals is truly inspiring and brings happy tears to my eyes.

The housing for the dogs is impeccably maintained. When I visited for the first time to adopt a dog, I noticed volunteers showing such love and care for the dogs. The dog I adopted had been fully vetted and I received such support and help even after I took the dog home. Never having adopted a former breeding dog before, I must admit I was really nervous and really didn't know what to expect. This organization provides so much help. They have a volunteer behaviorist who makes herself available to answer any questions or concerns and an on line support group. I was so impressed with the mission and goals of this organization, I asked how I could help. I don't live in Colorado but I have been able to help and made to feel like I am an integral part of this organization. Theresa Strader, the founder of the organization makes herself available and is truly hands on in rescuing and caring for the dogs. She shows such love and compassion for these terrified and neglected dogs. I have seen her on so many occasions when I had the opportunity to visit the facility at the kennel interacting with the dogs and the volunteers. She is the real deal! She knows everyone's name and always greets them and, she remembers every dog she has rescued and can tell you their history. This is absolutely astounding considering NMDR has rescued over 10,000 dogs! Since, unfortunately sometimes the dogs escape after they are adopted, a lost dog team was established. These dedicated volunteers will camp out in the cold, snow and rain if necessary to recover a lost dog and return him to his people. It truly is about the dogs!

A year ago, I had no experience with mill dogs. A friend sent me a Facebook link to National Mill Dog Rescue. I looked at their website and the descriptions of the available dogs and immediately fell in love with a little Papillon who had recently been rescued. I filled out the on line application and, as requested, asked friends to submit letters of recommendation as to the type of dog momma I would make. I was provided with extensive information concerning the best way to help a mill dog adjust to living in a home and I was also provided with the name of the canine behaviorist to speak with concerning unique problems I might experience in addition to information about the Facebook support group where I could share information with other adopting doggie parents. I was incredibly impressed with everyone I met - both on line and in person when I drove to Colorado Springs to meet and adopt my little Papillon. When I learned about the work that Theresa Strader and all the volunteers were doing to re-home dogs who had lived their entire lives in a small cage, I asked if there was something I could do from out of state to help spread the word. I became a volunteer 9 months ago and help with the Facebook page and fund raising. I have been to the facility several times and I always find the dogs to be extremely well cared for and living in an impeccably clean, warm and roomy kennel with plenty of clean water and food and a comfy bed. The volunteers are amazing and it is very obvious they love the dogs! I now have adopted 4 breeding dogs from National Mill Dog Rescue and will continue to donate time and money to this very worthy and well run organization!

Highly recommended Non-profit! National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR) is an active and well-run organization of truly caring and compassionate people. I have enjoyed my experiences with them as an adopter, a foster parent, a donor, and as a volunteer. Well worth your time, resources, and donations to directly save and help these poor, sweet, innocent souls - the victims of puppy mills. They bring these dogs to freedom for the first time and you can see the change happen in them over time. NMDR cares for each and every dog they rescue for the rest of their lives.

We have adopted 3 senior dogs (after 10, 8, and 7 years living in little cages) and have fostered and re-homed 3 others. While taking in a puppy mill survivor is challenging, it is quite rewarding. These dogs never got a chance to live as dogs and lack a lot of normal dog behaviors, but when they start learning how to trust, love, play, explore, run on grass, etc. it is the most incredible feeling ever. While my dogs are not completely potty or leash trained, that's okay with me. I want to make up for their horrible past lives and want them to experience the best life ever!

National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR) is a non-profit organization based in Peyton, Colorado. It was established by Theresa Strader in February 2007,[1] and legally incorporated on July 23, 2007.[2] According to the organization's website, it aims to "rescue, rehabilitate and rehome discarded breeding dogs and to educate the general public about the cruel realities of the commercial dog breeding industry".[3]

Founding[edit]

In February 2007, founder Teresa Strader heard that a large-scale commercial breeder, or puppy mill, was going out of business and a massive dog auction would take place in Missouri.[4] She attended the auction and was left speechless at the mistreatment of the dogs.[5] She adopted 13 of the 561 dogs up for auction,[4] including an Italian Greyhound named Lily.[6] She soon established National Mill Dog Rescue in honor of Lily. National Mill Dog Rescue was legally incorporated on July 23, 2007.[2] Lily died on May 13, 2008 at the age of 8.[7]

Accomplishments[edit]

On March 3, 2019, the organization said they had rescued over 13,000 dogs.[8] On September 27, 2019, the organization said they had provided exemplary care for more than 14,400 dogs over the previous 12 years. They have a 11,000 square foot kennel, a 6,000 square foot medical/rehabilitation facility, and a foster program, which when combined allows them to care for about 130 large and small dogs. As of September 27, 2019, they had 33 full and part-time staff and 700 volunteers.[9]

In 2013, Theresa Strader was given the ASPCA's Henry Bergh Award[10] for her work with NMDR.[11]

Controversy[edit]

In March 2017, NMDR was cited by the Pet Animal Care Facilities Act agency for failing to comply with nine different state regulations. Violations included housing male and female dogs together, having kennels with rusty and sharp panels that could hurt a dog, and transferring 62 dogs from Kansas to Colorado without obtaining the required certificates of veterinary inspection (CVIs). In early 2019, NMDR's former marketing director Jene Nelson filed complaints with two state agencies, alleging that NMDR had trafficked dogs across state lines without required veterinary paperwork, falsified rabies certificates before offering dogs for adoption or transferring them to other shelters, and delayed or failed to provide needed veterinary treatment multiple times.[5] Theresa Strader was sent a cease-and-desist letter on June 28, 2019, which said the State Board of Veterinary Medicine had credible evidence that Strader had interpreted test results, administered vaccinations, performed exams, and diagnosed animals, all without the proper license.[12] The board also launched their own investigation.[13]

On July 14, 2019, an article detailing questionable practices used by NMDR was published on the Huffington Post news website. Among other things, the article said that despite claiming to fight commercial dog breeding, NMDR often works hand-in-hand with breeders. After the article's publication, Strader published a post on NMDR's Facebook page, which denied multiple claims the article made.[12]

On August 8, 2019, NMDR was fined $15,000 by the Pet Animal Care Facilities Act agency.[14] The order cited 15 regulatory violations including importing dogs without the required vaccinations and paperwork, failing to produce medical records, failing to produce a complete origin record for one dog, and transporting dogs and cats without a license. The order also said that two dogs named Oscar and Jubilee were severely injured in dogfights at the facility. According to the order, NMDR admitted that there is a factual basis for disciplinary proceedings, and waived its rights to any hearing or appeal. According to the agency's manager, Nick Fisher, Nelson's allegations of wrongdoing were correct, and pretty much all of her allegations were founded in their investigation.[15]
