Colorado Group Saves Dogs From Puppy Mills

Most of us would rather not think about what happens to unwanted and unloved dogs, but there is a group in Colorado that not only thinks about it, they do something about it, saving more than 1000 dogs every year from puppy mills.

The National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR) in Peyton, Colorado, northeast of Colorado Springs, has been rescuing dogs for 10  years — 11,000 of them to date.

Imagine your own dog being in a puppy mill where dogs are housed in overcrowded, unsanitary conditions without adequate veterinary care, food, and water. It’s a heart-breaking thought – yet thousands of dogs are kept in such facilities, usually for the purpose of breeding.

Take a look at this brief video to learn more about the work of NMDR. About 90% of the NMDR staff is volunteer, so donations are always needed to keep the work going.

The NMDR hopes to put an end to the cruelty of the puppy mill industry, and encourages pet lovers to adopt from reputable shelters such as Mesa County Animal Services and Roice-Hurst Humane Society in Grand Junction.
