"I'm Zinny, and I'm a very sweet and shy girl. I love other dogs, and especially like to snuggle with them. I am hoping for a forever home with at least one other dog, and with a person or two who would hold me. I really like to be held."

Important message from Theresa Strader, National Mill Dog Rescue founder. http://milldogrescue.org/10000-dogs-saved/
As we close in on rescuing 10,000 dogs, I am flooded with a vast array of memories, thoughts and emotions. For myself and my family, in the most positive and meaningful way, rescuing Lily changed the path of our lives forever.

Occasionally we return from a rescue with an 'angel dog', which is a dog not necessarily from a puppy mill, but saved because there was no other option for the dog, and we just happened to have room in our rescue van. This is Nami's story: http://milldogrescue.org/namis-story/
For some reason, the man looked to his right as he drove down the isolated country road in central Kansas. In the bright sunshine a dark form piqued his curiosity and he slowed his car. Intrigued yet worried, he stopped, then backed up.

Lily was the first dog rescued by National Mill Dog Rescue and therefore it was only right that her tag was personally written and placed first into the commemorative '10,000 Dogs – 10,000 Tags' display by Theresa Strader, NMDR founder. Please watch this touching video.

Each of the 10,000 tags will represent one of the 10,000 dogs rescued. You can be a part of this permanent commemorative display at National Mill Dog Rescue. To learn more: http://milldogrescue.org/10000-dogs-saved/

The 4th grade students from Ellicott Elementary School adopted National Mill Dog Rescue as their school project this year. With the help of two NMDR volunteers, several students visited NMDR’s facility, where they conducted their own research, learned about puppy mill dogs, and developed a wonderful presentation which they gave to other classrooms at their school.

"Hi. My name is Harley and I'm on the right. My foster-brother is also named Harley, and he's on the left. Anyway, Harley rescued me from a puppy mill with the help of National Mill Dog Rescue, and it's important to us that I find the perfect forever home (just like he did 4 years ago). I'm a great little guy - sweet, funny, mellow, just all around wonderful. I like to run in the grass and sleep on my foster-mom's lap. Perhaps I could join your family?"

We rescue, rehabilitate and re-home retired commercial breeding dogs.
Introduction
National Mill Dog Rescue rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes retired commercial breeding dogs from puppy mills. NMDR gives these dogs a new beginning and a final chance to find happiness and comfort in a loving home.


ABOUT NATIONAL MILL DOG RESCUE:

National Mill Dog Rescue was established in February 2007, in honor of a forgiving little Italian Greyhound named Lily. Theresa Strader, NMDR’s Founder and Executive Director, rescued Lily from a dog auction in Missouri. Prior to that day, Lily had spent the first seven years of her life as a commercial breeding dog, a puppy mill mom. Determined that her years of living in misery would not be in vain, Strader started NMDR, giving a voice to mill dogs across the country.

During her years as a breeding dog, Lily spent all of her days confined to a small, cold wire cage in a dark, foul-smelling barn. Never was she removed from her cage for exercise or socialization. In her dreary confines, Lily was forced to produce one litter after another with no respite. Like all commercial breeding dogs, she was a veritable breeding machine whose worth was measured in only one way - her ability to produce puppies.

By seven years of age, Lily was worn out. Commonplace in the industry, she had received little to no veterinary care throughout her life, the result of which, for her, was terribly disturbing. Due to years of no dental care, poor quality food, rabbit bottle watering and no appropriate chew toys, the roof of Lily’s mouth and lower jaw, had rotted away. Her chest was riddled with mammary tumors and she was absolutely terrified of people.

Strader brought Lily and twelve others home from the auction and declares that even for a highly seasoned rescuer, the following months were the education of a lifetime in rehabilitation. That she would take up the cause for the mill dogs was never in question and National Mill Dog Rescue was promptly underway. In five short years, NMDR has amassed over 1,300 volunteers and has rescued over 8,000 puppy mill survivors.

Run almost solely by volunteers, NMDR has pledged to put an end to the cruelty of the puppy mill industry. Through widespread informative efforts, NMDR hopes to educate the public to acquire their companion animals through reputable breeders or better yet, from shelters and rescue groups across the country.

After her rescue, Lily spent the remainder of her life as a beloved member of the Strader family where she received medical care, warmth and companionship. In time, Lily found courage and her disfigured little body educated countless people about the horrors of the puppy mill industry. Lily died peacefully in the arms of her loving family in May 2008, fifteen months after she was rescued.
