I just found this pet related video on YouTube … and thought it would be of interest!
Note: information from YouTube
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.

I am simply speechless. Someone pass the Kleenex and then let’s get busy stopping this industry!
Thanks so much for sharing that. What a wonderful production.
Wow this is great work. Keep making videos.
God Bless this wonderful organization. You are the Heart and Soul of the true animal rescuer.
I just got home after volunteering at the rescue shelter. You should see these wonderful dogs – I wanted to bring them all home with me. I am so glad Theresa did this – she is an amazing woman. Please support legislation to stop the cruelty of Puppy Mills. Thank you. Maria
I volunteer with this organization and they are truely amazing. I recently adopted a 6 yr old, 8 lb Havanese that spent her entire 6 yrs in a cage. After 3 weeks with us, she is still scared to death of being picked up. I have loved on her the entire time, no harsh words, nothing, and it breaks my heart to see that she still doesn’t trust me or any human touch. I will care for her and love my “Penny” for the rest of her life and she is now FREE at last!
‘6 years in a cage’. This is unthinkable and hard to grasp…Francelle, thank you for adopting Penny and for being there as a volunteer for all the other rescued dogs that need so much love after living such a sad and gruesome life. After one year, please do a story and let us know how Penny is doing. That would make a great story for your organization’s 3rd Anniversary.. By the way, Happy 2nd Anniversary, Theresa! Great Job!
I too volunteer with this life saving organization. The dogs are heartbreaking when they come in but everyone that volunteers out there loves on them and helps to teach them that people are trustworthy. Every time one of these dogs gets adopted, I want to cheer because they are so deserving of a chance to be loved. Dogs want a “pack” to love and dogs are not livestock, they are man’s & woman’s best friends.
I’m a cleaner, and I’m so proud to be a part of such an amazing organization…..an organization filled with the most selfless and compassionate people. Rescuing a mill dog is unlike anything. It’s something you can’t comprehend until you actually rescue one of these special dogs.
So glad to have found your link and hope we can connect:)
For the ANIMALS!!!
That was an utterly amazing video
it left me speechless.
I am going to rescue a mill dog.
i have been looking for a puppy for quite some time.
And i now realize that i want to rescue a mill dog.
i want to save one of those dogs.
That is so fantastic! I am a Milldog volunteer- it is so great to see that people want to help as much as we do!:)
It’s amazing how much I’ve grown as a person from these dogs. For every ounce you give they give you a pound back, and more.
I had the privledge of meeting Theresa and her group when they brought 121 wonderful puppy mill breeder dogs to Phoenix AZ , I was changed forever as I took home 2 Bichon girls 8 and 4 yrs old and learned what puppy mills do to the animals, and like Theresa it catalpulted me into action on behalf of these dogs, and now I am one of their voices, the voice of the dogs imprisoned in the “breeding for profit” industry Theresa you are an angel and a role model to many. keep up the great work
close the mills, desex your pets!
I am happy to say I have adopted one of the NMDR dogs and she’s the sweetest little girl ever!
She will be loved and spoiled to pieces.
screw the people that do those things to dogs
My family recently adopted a 3 yr. old Havanese named Ava from NMDR. She was very shy and scared to even go through doors. Yet even just after 3 weeks, she has opened up and wants to play all the time! It’s wonderful and a blessing to have her, and I appreciate the dedication and hard work this organization has had to rescue these beautiful animals. 🙂
My first beagle was from a pet store and as we found out later, he was from a midwest puppy mill. I didn’t know any better. I never heard of puppy mills back then (this was 15 years ago). I was young and stupid. PLEASE – GET THE WORD OUT!!!! Tell anyone about this terrible thing! I’ll post it on my channel. I feel ashamed thinking about the fact that I bought a pup from a place like that.
Thanks for all you do! I’m creating a club that will support NMDR at my school.
