He also reviews new vehicles for the Automotive Manufacturers to his audience of 15 million.
According to Fireball Tim, “There aren’t many women who have accomplished as much as National Mill Dog Rescue founder, Theresa Strader has in saving pooches from the pain and suffering of harsh conditions. I’m proud and excited to be a part of her journey.”

National Mill Dog Rescue’s founder, Theresa Strader had this to say: “We are so very grateful for the support of our work. It’s About the Dogs!”
Pre-orders of the book are being accepted at Amazon.com.
National Mill Dog Rescue’s founder, Theresa Strader was recently honored as a People Magazine’s “Heroes Among Us” in the November 19, 2012 issue.
National Mill Dog Rescue is a Colorado Springs based organization that rescues, rehabilitates, and re-homes retired commercial breeding dogs from puppy mills. NMDR relies on over fourteen hundred volunteers to care for the dogs, from the moment they are surrendered to the time they are adopted and beyond. We also depend on the kindness of the public in the form of donations.
The idea behind National Mill Dog Rescue started with a single sentence in an e-mail that Theresa Strader received: “50 Italian Greyhounds in need.” A large-scale breeding operation, or ‘puppy mill’ was going out of business and all 561 of the dogs were going to be auctioned off that weekend. One of those dogs was Lily. The moment their eyes met through the wire of Lily’s tiny cage, Theresa knew her life had changed forever and that this new life would include Lily.
In honor of that very special Italian Greyhound, National Mill Dog Rescue was established in February 2007 to give a voice to mill dogs across the country. Since then, almost 7 thousand have been saved. The work is far from over. NMDR is a no-kill organization. Every single dog that comes through the doors is given whatever medical care they need - without exception. They are groomed, usually for the very first time. Years of filth and matted fur are removed, allowing the beautiful dog underneath to shine. Soon they learn about all the simple everyday things that most dogs take for granted like toys and treats, a soft bed, and most importantly - love.
