National Mill Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in the state of Colorado and located just east of Colorado Springs in Peyton. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home discarded breeding dogs and to educate the general public about the cruel realities of the commercial dog breeding industry, otherwise known as puppy mills. The idea behind National Mill Dog Rescue started with a single sentence in an e-mail that Theresa Strader received: 50 Italian Greyhounds in Need. A large-scale breeding operation, or puppy mill was going out of business and all 561 of the dogs were going to be auctioned off that weekend. One of those dogs was Lily. The moment their eyes met through the wire of Lily's tiny cage, Theresa knew her life had changed forever and that this new life would include Lily. In honor of that very special Italian Greyhound, National Mill Dog Rescue was established in February 2007 to give a voice to mill dogs across the country. Since then, more than 16,789 dogs have been saved. The work is far from over. Every single dog that comes through our doors is given whatever medical care they need - without exception. They are groomed, usually for the very first time. Years of filth and matted fur are removed, allowing the beautiful dog underneath to shine. Soon they learn about all the simple everyday things that most dogs take for granted like toys and treats, a soft bed, and most importantly - love.
