National Mill Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that rescues, rehabilitates, and re-homes discarded breeding dogs and educates the public about the cruel realities of the commercial dog breeding industry. NMDR relies heavily on volunteers to care for the dogs from the moment they are surrendered to the time they are adopted and beyond. They depend on the generosity of donations from the public to provide the high level of care needed for the dogs and to continue to be able to rescue them. National Mill Dog Rescue has saved more than 11,100 dogs since our inception in 2007.

About CBS EcoMedia Inc. (ecomediacbs.com)
EcoMedia was founded in 2001 by social entrepreneur Paul Polizzotto. The company's mission is to harness the power of the advertising dollar to make tangible, quality of life improvements in communities nationwide.

Paul Polizzotto and the team at EcoMedia have earned numerous awards and recognitions for their work, including the US Conference of Mayors Award for Excellence in Public Private Partnerships (2009) and back-to-back Edison Awards for Social Innovation and Social Impact (2012, 2013).

About Rescue Bank (rescuebank.org)
Rescue Bank operates on the national food bank model, serving community-based animal welfare groups that typically lack access to resources. Rescue Bank recognizes that these smaller, less-visible groups represent a substantial portion of America's animal rescue resource.
Rescue Bank works with name-brand suppliers to deliver donated pet food to serve both the ongoing needs of more than 1,800 animal welfare organizations and the immediate needs of communities after disasters such as Superstorm Sandy and, more recently, the Texas floods. Since establishing its national network in 2011, Rescue Bank has delivered more that 120 million meals of nutritious, wholesome pet food.
Rescue Bank is a signature program of GreaterGood.org.
