National Mill Founder Wins Hero of Year Award

Posted: Nov. 13, 2013, 2:05 p.m. EST

Theresa Strader, founder of National Mill Dog Rescue, has been named the winner of HomeAgain Pet Recovery Service’s Hero of the Year Award.

Strader, who has helped take in, rehabilitate and find homes for nearly 8,000 former breeding dogs since 2007, was honored for her dedication to companion animals and her community impact. HomeAgain, a pet microchip service from Merck Animal Health, reported Tuesday that it will donate $10,000 to the Peyton, Colo., organization.

Theresa Strader is a former pediatric nurse who uses social media, speaking engagements and educational programs to advocate for dogs in need.
"Our communities are filled with people who make a difference in the lives of animals, but so many of their efforts go unsung,” said Linda Block, marketing director for Summit, N.J.-based HomeAgain. "HomeAgain is proud to be able to recognize Strader and help shed a light on the tremendous animal well-being efforts being carried out every day throughout our country.

"Strader is an outstanding example of the impact one person can make on the lives of animals.”

A public vote on the HomeAgain website chose Strader as the winner from among five finalists. The Petfinder Foundation, Winn Feline Foundation, Assistance Dogs International and Morris Animal Foundation each will receive $1,000 in honor of the four other finalists.

Learning of her award was humbling, Strader said.

"The work is tireless and never ending, but the rewards we reap in animal rescue are unparalleled,” she said.

National Mill Dog Rescue earlier this year won the $10,000 grand prize in the American Pet Products Association’s Pets Add Life Help a Shelter Out contest.

The rescue organization each day assists seven to eight dogs with spay/neuter surgery, heartworm testing, vaccinations, dental care and microchipping.
