PEYTON — Volunteers and staff with the National Mill Dog Rescue have welcomed 48 new rescue dogs to their pack, which were relinquished by commercial breeders.
This rescue is called the "Loving Lucy Rescue Ride," because it was sponsored by a woman named Wendy Oppenheimer, who is allowing these dogs to have a new life in honor of her mother, Helene Lucille ”Lucy” Oppenheimer.
The National Mill Dog Rescue's mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome discarded breeding dogs and to educate the public about the realities of the commercial dog breeding industry.
Their biggest need is monthly donors, although they recognize that with COVID, everyone might not be able to donate towards our mission. However, the team still appreciates those who share our story, posts, and mission with others!
National Mill Dog Rescue is also turning their Annual Dog Jog fundraising event into a virtual one this year.
Registration is open at https://bit.ly/VirtualDogJog2020 [bit.ly] for individual registrations, and they are still accepting Vendors and Sponsors.
If you are interested in fostering, they are also looking for long-term foster homes for their dogs to help them to become more socialized and used to being in a house, which helps them immensely as they're being adopted to their forever homes.
