Animal cruelty should never be tolerated. Angela Stell, founder and director of NMDOG, works hard to make sure no animal has to suffer inhumane treatment.

NMDOG is an organization that rescues chained dogs. They are constantly searching for dogs who need help.

One day Stell found 5 chained dogs on a property in Miguel County, New Mexico; where it is illegal to keep dogs chained when the owner is not present.
Stell got in touch with the Animal Welfare Coalition of Northeastern New Mexico to give these dogs their freedom.

The county sheriff department eventually took the dogs into custody.

Stell helped the dogs escape extremely cruel circumstances.

It was obvious from the black marks in their fur that the dogs had been chained for a long time.
