HomeAgain Pet Recovery Service has named its Hero of the Year Award recipient.
Theresa Strader, founder of Colorado-based National Mill Dog Rescue, received the award because of her dedication to companion animals and the significant impact she has made in her community.
Strader has rescued nearly 8,000 dogs from puppy mills across the United States. In addition to saving the dogs, she also rehabilitates and finds homes for them across the country. HomeAgain will make a $10,000 donation in her name to the National Mill Dog Rescue.
“Our communities are filled with people who make a difference in the lives of animals, but so many of their efforts go unsung,” Linda Block, marketing director for HomeAgain, said. “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, and we are honored to call her a hero.”
