what you can do to directly support national mill dog rescue
• Donate - as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we rely solely on the generosity of our supporters to continue our mission. Veterinary care is an enormous expense when rescuing mill dogs. A typical retired "breeder dog" is 5-7 years old, has spent its entire life in a small filthy wire cage, has been bred literally almost to death, and in most cases has never received any veterinary care. Upon rescue, we see a wide variety of illnesses and injuries, some are life-threatening. Each rescue trip typically costs $2,500.
• Support Fundraising Efforts - attend events, share the information, work with us to organize your own event, contribute if you can when asked.
• Adopt or Foster
• Network - share newsletters, social media posts, or other communications with your own network.
• Educate - take opportunities to share the message with others.
• Volunteer - if you are in the local area, sign up to volunteer. If you are not in the local area and wish to volunteer, we may have options. With our social media, we are always looking for experienced volunteers who can volunteer from a distance. In particular we are looking for those with solid experience in the following areas:
- Graphics Design
- Journalistic writing
- Youtube management
- Facebook Administration
- Video Production
- Music creation
If you have skills you would like to share with us in these areas, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
