Shop for a Cause!

National Mill Dog Rescue’s Paw Partners are businesses who give NMDR a donation through their shop or service sales. Be sure to support these businesses who support NMDR! Learn more about each Paw Partner and know each sale is doing a little more good.

Special Discounted Programs

Dogs bring love and happiness into our lives, and we are excited to be able to offer special discounts to those over age 60 and those who are members of the armed forces.

We have 3 programs to choose from when you’re interested in adopting – click below to learn more!

Why become a monthly donor?

Our mission depends profoundly on the kindness and dedication of supporters like you. By becoming a monthly Angel Donor, you’ll join a compassionate community committed to offering the dogs we rescue the rehabilitative and medical attention they need to thrive. Becoming an Angel Donor sets up an automatic monthly withdrawal that helps us continue our mission and care for our dogs. You can make a difference in the lives of some very deserving dogs without having to give it a second thought!

Do you love reading books?

Our Rescue Readers program is back! Socializing with rescued dogs is not only fulfilling, it helps our dogs to become accustomed to human interaction. This activity is appropriate for ages elementary through high school.

Please note, you will need to bring a guardian with you to the shelter for this activity.  See our Facebook Events page for more details and dates.

Please email JoniW@nmdr.org for more information and to sign up!
