About

LAST DAY is more than just a name, it’s the situation all our dogs were faced with. Now these wonderful dogs get another chance at life. All dogs coming into our rescue were saved from high-kill animal shelters or being sold for research.


Products And Services

Last Day Dog Rescue is an ALL volunteer based organization. We do not have a physical location, all of our dogs are placed in the care of foster homes until they are adopted.

Our Group focuses on rescuing dogs from the Urgent list in Shelters and pounds across lower Michigan and Parts of Ohio with an emphasis on those shelters who euthanize by gas or those shelters who sell the dogs in their care to research labs where they are used for barbaric and most times painful testing and experiments. We hold a special place in our hearts for the big and black dogs, even ‘ugly’ dogs (who we don’t find ugly at all!) and the special senior dogs. These dogs most often get overlooked and passed up in shelters and pounds everywhere for puppies, small breeds, and the ‘prettier’, lighter colored dogs.

Dogs found in shelters are there for many reasons; some are owner surrenders, strays, cruelty or abuse cases and some dogs are found abandoned, left to fend for themselves in vacant homes, fields, ditches and some are even being tied out in the woods and left to starve. Last Day Dog Rescue does not discriminate and feels that each of these dogs, no matter their size, age, color or the reason they are there, deserve a second chance at life…we help all those we can.

"Positive experience, but process takes a while"

"We had a really great experience with LDDR. We followed the process they stated on their website - apply for a dog, have your vet check and home visit done, and once you are approved, begin meeting dogs. They are very clear in stating that they cannot hold a dog for you and that they place dogs with the home that is a best match for the dog - not necessarily the home that applies first or that meets the dog first. Many of these dogs have been through abuse and neglect situations, so LDDR's goal is to place them with a home that they believe will stick, and where the dog will thrive. For us, that meant looking at three different dogs before we met the wonderful dog we ended up with! I am dinging them one star simply because they are a foster-based rescue and therefore do not have a physical location. You cannot go to a shelter and meet all the dogs at the same time. The good news is that they usually can tell you more about a particular dog than a shelter can because the dogs live in the volunteers' homes and they learn a lot more about them that way, but Stacey is right -- to her point this does make the process more cumbersome. If you want to save a dog and are willing to put up with a little cumbersome, go with LDDR. If you want a guaranteed dog that you can take home ASAP, go to a breeder. "

  
"Avoid this rescue!"

" would not recommend this facility to anyone, especially those with kids. After applying online, we were approved. We went to visit the puppy at a volunteer home that was filthy and smelled horrible. The animals had an intestinal parasite that had been treated but not cleared. We were told as we left that the next step was a home visit that after a week, never happened. When we followed up, we were told that it was decided we were not a good fit . It was stated that the rescue is NOT first come first serve, they reserve the right to deny anyone WITHOUT explanation and all decisions are final. They had accepted 35 applications on 7 puppys (we were not aware until we had traveled 30 miles for the visit. Our kids were in tears after being allowed to visit puppies that they would never get and being strung along for over 2 weeks. Apparently, your opinion on a pet that would fit well in your family has no bearing. Only they get to decide what would make a good pet for you, or even if you get to have a pet at all. Save yourself time, heartbreak and money and find a reputable breeder."
