5 Ways to Change a Dog’s Life

As the end of 2022 approaches so quickly, we are asking you once more to consider giving to National Mill Dog Rescue. We know there are many causes you may support, and we are so grateful for the donations that you choose to give to us, and to the dogs.

This year, we have 5 different ways that you can give to help change a dog’s life! 

See the images below for more information about each way you can give and change a dog’s life, forever.

  • Give! – Nov 1 through Dec 31 – Close to Home, Close to your Heart
  • Giving Tuesday – Nov 29 – Be the Good in Their World
  • CO Gives Day – Dec 6 – Give Where They Live
  • Year-End Appeal – through Dec 31 – Believe in the PAWSibilities
  • Stock Giving and FreeWill – through Dec 31 – Leave a Legacy for the Dogs


The Give! campaign is live now, ending December 31st. This is an opportunity for us to join fellow nonprofits in Southern Colorado to raise money for our respective missions. We are grateful to everyone who donated towards our matching grant, as well as the El Pomar Foundation, who graciously provided a $1,500 grant. That means that the first $2,750 in donations on this campaign is MATCHED!

Giving Tuesday

Donate to National Mill Dog Rescue to be the good in rescued dogs’ lives as they begin to rebuild health, trust, and a happy future. Giving Tuesday is a global giving day that happens annually, this year on November 29th. Their visionvis to reimagine a world built upon shared humanity and radical generosity. 

Colorado Gives Day

For our local supporters – we hope you’ll donate to National Mill Dog Rescue on this largest of Colorado giving days. On the first Tuesday of December, Coloradans come together to support nonprofits that make a difference in our lives, like NMDR. Colorado Gives Day has raised more than $362 million for nonprofits across the state since it began.

Legacy and Stock Gifts

Leave a lasting legacy with a bequest to NMDR or consider the tax benefits of donating appreciated stock. We have partnered with FreeWill, making it easy for you to write your free, legally-binding will in just 20 minutes. You may also choose to donate stock to National Mill Dog Rescue before December 31st!

Year-End Appeal

Our teams rescued and cared for over 1,300 dogs in 2022, the most dogs NMDR has rescued in one year since our inception! In our long-time ambition to increase the number of dogs we serve, this summer we were very fortunate to purchase a property in Missouri, right in the heart of mill country where most of our rescue efforts take place. Your generosity and kindness allow happy endings for thousands of dogs to come true every day at NMDR.

Your donations matter!

Whatever way you choose to give, we are grateful. Your continued support, especially during this time of year, allows us to impact the lives of even more dogs who need us. Who need you. Thank you, from all of us!
