Giving Back to the Community - January Spotlight on National Mill Dog Rescue

By 4Knines Staff. | Giving Back
34 National Mill Dog Rescue January Spotlight on National Mill Dog Rescue On a spring day in 2013, Lizzy walked outside for the first time. She had spent the last 12 years of her life locked in cage, being made to breed over and over. Lizzy was a puppy mill mom rescued by the National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR) who finally got to feel grass under her paws with a loving family by her side. Sadly, there are thousands more dogs like Lizzy still waiting for that chance, and that's why NMDR was founded. A puppy mill, often called a puppy farm, is a commercial dog breeding operation that places profit over the well-being of its dogs"”who are often severely neglected. NMDR was founded in an effort to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome discarded breeding dogs and to educate the general public about the cruel realities of the commercial dog breeding industry. Without the help of NMDR, the dogs it rescues would be facing death. Since its inception, NMDR has rescued thousands of dogs, providing medical care, love and finding them forever homes. NMDR was established in honor of an Italian Greyhound named Lily. Theresa Strader, NMDR's Founder and Executive Director, rescued Lily from a dog auction in Missouri. Prior to that day, Lily had spent the first seven years of her life as a commercial breeding dog. She had received little to no veterinary care throughout her life, no dental care, poor quality food, and rabbit bottle watering. The result: the roof of Lily's mouth and lower jaw, had rotted away, and her chest was riddled with mammary tumors. She was also absolutely terrified of people. Strader adopted her and cared for her for 15 months before she passed away. As of 2012, NMDR had amassed over 1,300 volunteers and had rescued more than 8,400 puppy mill survivors. Run almost solely by volunteers, NMDR has pledged to put an end to the cruelty of the puppy mill industry. Through widespread informative efforts, NMDR hopes to educate the public to acquire their companion animals through reputable breeders or better yet, from shelters and rescue groups across the country. As of today January 30 th 2015 they are deploying on their mission to travel almost 2,000 miles to rescue more than 100 dogs in three states from puppy mills. 4Knines is donating $200 to National Mill Dog Rescue to thank them for their outstanding work. Each month, we'll choose another worthy pet charity to donate to. Please consider donating to NMDR. To donate click here.

EXCELLENT SEAT COVER

We liked the first cover so much that a few days later we purchased a second one. The cover installs very, very easily, fits and covers the rear seat and the back of the front seats of our Subaru Tribeca perfectly, has flaps that cover the door-side edges of the rear seat, and stays perfectly in place. Spilled or tracked water beads up on the material and can be easily wiped off. At first our dog did tend to slide just a little on the new cover, but he soon learned to stand, sit, and lay just as well as he did before on the uncovered seat. The hammock portion seems like it might provide some little bit of protection in a sudden stop (our guy will chew apart any "doggie seat belt" type of restraint in very short order - so that option is out of the question for us). As to keeping him out of the car front-area - well, our long-legged Standard Poodle has no problem in still looking closely out the front windshield by putting his front feet on the center console - straddling the hammock - with no problem whatsoever. But we did discover that having the hammock in place does allow us to safely keep his water bottle and dish, his leash, and an old towel on the floor under the hammock - where he can no longer get at them (especially the leash and towel) to chew on them. All in all, an excellent seat cover.

My furbabies don't like leather seats!!!! But they love this seat cover!!!

Very hard to find a split bench seat cover at a reasonable price, this one fit the bill. Easy to install, very durable and looks to be easy to clean. Wanted something that would protect the leather seats and was pet friendly (hate it when the material of regular seat covers snags toenails and collars). I don't think I will have to buy another for many years!!!

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.

Split Rear Dog Seat Cover - Fitted - No Hammock

I had ordered this item from an on-line site and was extremely disappointed when I received the wrong item. I was impressed with the quality of the seat cover and decided to contact 4Knines directly. I placed my order with Maggie and received the Split Rear Dog Seat Cover within three days. The seat cover fits nicely in my new Honda CR-V and as stated by 4Knines, is very easy to install and remove. My 8-month old labradoodle Brodie likes the comfort, and friends agree with him. Great quality item, reasonably priced, and outstanding customer service. Thanks 4Knines.
