Reba

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

Abandoned at nine years old, Reba found herself alone at a shelter in Arizona. Grey Muzzle grantee Arizona Beagle Rescue stepped up and took this sweet girl into their care. When Reba first arrived at the rescue, she was one of the most petrified pups her foster mom had ever met.  She also had significant pain in her hip. X-rays and an exam by an orthopedic specialist showed she needed surgery. Thanks to a Grey Muzzle grant, little Reba got the care she needed to repair her hip and relieve her pain.

Colt

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

A message from National Mill Dog Rescue founder, Theresa Strader

As I reflect back on 2016, there are certain dogs that stand out for one reason or another-- seniors whose bodies are ravaged from years of overproduction and confinement, the most timid dogs that are terrified of our touch, dogs that are sick or dogs that were in such horrible condition they were unrecognizable as dogs. These are the dogs that touch and break our hearts the most.

Faith and two other female "breeders" were released by their owner at the urging of local Animal Control Officers. All three dogs were used to produce puppies and lived most of their lives in crates.
