Mill Dog #251 As a breeding dog, #251 lived 7 years of her life, in a small wire cage, with no human contact and no vet care. She was never taken outside of her cage. 6
Lily National Mill Dog Rescue was inspired by #251, named Lily. Theresa Strader rescued Lily from an auction in Missouri and founded NMDR in February 2007 in her honor. 7
Humble Beginnings NMDR was initially located at Theresa & Rich Strader’s family home in Black Forest. 8
Soon volunteers were coming to help…
And only two years later… NMDR moved to a new facility in Peyton, Colorado. 10
