A Message From Dahna…
My ‘Giving of the Heart’ Christmas album is a labor of love, driven by the love I feel for every precious pup still living in the nightmare of a puppy mill (if you aren’t familiar with the horrors of puppy mills, click here to learn about them). When I met Theresa Strader of National Mill Dog Rescue, I knew I’d met an angel. Her passion and drive was all it took to get this incredible organization off the ground. Theresa started NMDR 7 years ago and in that time they have saved more than 9,600 dogs from puppy mills. Relying solely on donations and grants for funding, they rescue discarded puppy mill breeding dogs from all over the county, and transport them to their home base kennel, ‘Lily’s Haven’, near Colorado Springs. Once at ‘Lily’s Haven’ each dog receives veterinary care, grooming, and most importantly, LOVE. I will forever be inspired by the dedication shown by their many volunteers and supporters; each of these individuals a part of facilitating rescues and aftercare, eventually helping to place each precious pup in a loving forever home.
I have been blessed to have the voice to create my ‘Giving of the Heart’ Christmas album, and the resources to offer all proceeds to support NMDR’s tireless efforts to help these innocent, abused dogs. I have believed from it’s inception that a completely selfless act of kindness can oly be successful if it’s pure – and there is no organization more pure than National Mill Dog Rescue.
The album is available on CD, digital Mp3 download, and iTunes. CLICK HERE to purchase, or preview the music below.

“The cruel realities of the commercial dog breeding industry have been hidden from consumers, people who only want to love and be loved by a wonderful companion. Truly if the world knew about the atrocities happening in puppy mills, they would be sickened.
National Mill Dog Rescue has worked tirelessly to save more than 8,000 dogs from this nightmare since 2007. I am proud to support their efforts.”
