National Mill Dog Rescue was established in February 2007, in honor of a forgiving little Italian Greyhound named Lily. Theresa Strader, NMDR's Founder and Executive Director, rescued Lily from a dog auction in Missouri. Prior to that day, Lily had spent the first seven years of her life as a commercial breeding dog, a puppy mill mom. Determined that her years of living in misery would not be in vain, Strader started NMDR, giving a voice to mill dogs across the country. During her years as a breeding dog, Lily spent all of her days confined to a small, cold wire cage in a dark, foul-smelling barn. Never was she removed from her cage for exercise or socialization. In her dreary confines, Lily was forced to produce one litter after another with no respite. Like all commercial breeding dogs, she was a veritable breeding machine whose worth was measured in only one way her ability to produce puppies.
Blind Cat Rescue was started in 2005 in St Pauls, NC (USA) by a mother daughter team to answer the need for a safe place for blind cats that were deemed not adoptable by regular shelters. They were going to be killed just because they are blind. We got our first blind cat (Louie) when we were volunteering for the local shelter. A man was going to leave this sick 6 week old kitten in the Petsmart parking lot if the shelter would not accept him. I found myself saying "I will take him". Then we got our second, third and fourth blind cat. We discovered there were no resources for blind cats out there and they were regularly killed because they were considered not adoptable. In North Carolina it is actually in the laws if an animal is sick, injured or blind it may be killed immediately in animal control facilities. We feel we do not kill humans because they are blind, why on earth would you kill an animal for the same thing? We knew from living with blind cats that they are just normal cats. They have no clue they are blind, they know they are cats, they act like cats. We decided it was time to do it right and applied to become a non profit and 501c3 charity
