Today is National Puppy Mill Day in Colorado Springs. To help celebrate the organization held an open house for dog owners, and their faimilies.
During the event, the National Mill Dog Rescue rolled out a very generous grant by the Petco Foundation. In order to further NMDR's commitment to rescue operations and transporting dogs to local events and adoption fairs, the Petco Foundation awarded NMDR a "rescue rig".
Founder and Director Theresa Strader said the new van will allow dogs to be rescued in the comfort they deserve.
"This vehicle is going to make such a huge difference for us", said Theresa Strader. "Its beautiful. It's a huge advertisement. People are going to ask what it is. Its going to be easier for us to take care of the animals as we transport."
