Do You Know Where Puppies REALLY Come From?
Here is the story of a wonderful dog named Lily who suffered at the hands of breeders. Lily was rescued from a puppy mill. To the right you can see a picture of Lily before she was rescued by Theresa Strader, the founder of the National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR). The picture of Lily above was taken during the second chapter of her life when she became a beloved member of the Strader family.
The goal of this non-profit organization is too rescue, rehabilitate and re-home discarded breeding dogs and to educate the general public about the cruel realities of the commercial dog breeding industry. The following documentary film is called, I Breathe: Lily’s Legacy which exposes the secrets of the pet industry and where vast majority of puppies at commercial pet shops come from. At this time the NMDR has successfully rescued over 9,400 dogs from puppy mills. There are many ways in which you can support this organization.
