NMDR won the prize for getting the most votes in the state at this stage in the contest. The second round has already begun, and interested community members can participate by voting once a day at theanimalrescuesite.com.
NMDR promotes two main goals: to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home mill dogs, and to educate the general public about the realities of the commercial dog breeding industry. The Indy wrote about the Peyton nonprofit in 2008.
NMDR is hosting its annual 2 Mile Ruff! Life Dog Jog on June 9 at Monument Valley Park, and all funds raised will benefit NMDR. The organization is also currently accepting donated items for its Pawsome Auction, to be held from May 12 to 25.
