2013 Annual Report – National Mill Dog Rescue

Dear friends,

This, our very first, annual report has been a long time coming. Getting any of us to slow down long enough to put it together has been a challenge. I hope you find it informative and trust it will increase your understanding of our mission, our priorities and our progress.

The journey that brings us to this point has been physically demanding, emotionally draining, and has consumed every spare second of my and many other people’s lives. And I don’t know a single one of us who would trade the experience.

Speaking for myself, I can say that I have never reaped such deep personal rewards. Right behind the dogs we rescue, I am the most blessed one of all. I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to give them a voice.

Our rescued dogs are heroes, each and every one. They give a whole new meaning to strength, courage and ability, the strength to overcome serious illnesses and injuries, the courage to trust hands that formerly were so unkind, and the ability to enrich our lives beyond measure.

The lessons in forgiveness and resilience that they teach us will stay with us forever. They give us the energy and yearning to go back for more. What an incredibly fulfilling and special experience it is to be on this journey.

To our volunteers and supporters, you are the lifeblood of this organization. National Mill Dog Rescue would not exist without you; and thousands of dogs would continue to languish or be destroyed, never having the chance to enjoy life as a member of a loving family.

To all of you who have stepped forward to support our efforts in so many ways, my gratitude is truly immeasurable.

My most sincere thanks,
Theresa Strader
Executive Director
