National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR) is the leading organization in the country devoted to rescuing commercial breeding dogs (puppy mill dogs). Over the past 16 years, we have rescued over 19,000 dogs, and grown from a small group of dedicated volunteers to a well-respected, established organization. The support of our donors allows us to continue our mission, as we are almost 100% funded by individual donations.
Commercial breeding dogs (puppy mill dogs) are amongst the most vulnerable population of dogs in this country. We do what we do because we believe these dogs deserve our efforts. We do what we do because your support allows us to put our passion into action. We do what we do because we make a difference. We get out on the road once or twice a month and rescue, on average, 1,100 dogs a year.
We need foster families who are willing to open their homes and hearts to rescued dogs until they are adopted into their forever homes, as well as volunteers at our shelter in Peyton.
NMDR rescues an average of over 1,000 dogs from across the country each year, and is fully-funded by donations.
“We have adopted 2 dogs in less than 1 year from NMDR. The staff at NMDR make the difference . . . I felt confident in the recommendation made by the staff and both placements have been beyond our expectations!!!” — Stacy Richards via Google review
