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.
Most dogs coming into our rescue were saved from high-kill animal shelters or being sold for research.
A Little About LDDR:
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.
To rescue dogs from high-kill shelters (across Michigan and Ohio) where they euthanize by gas or sell their dogs to research labs to be used for painful testing and experiments. Our rescued dogs are then placed into foster homes where they can interact with humans and other animals in an effort to make them adoptable. We hold a special place in our hearts for the big, black dogs, the not so pretty dogs, and senior dogs because they are often passed up in shelters everywhere for puppies, small breeds and the lighter colored “prettier” dogs.

Built By Volunteers From the Ground Up
Please Keep in mind that Last Day Dog Rescue is a 100% volunteer rescue. We have no paid staff; all areas of our Rescue are handled by volunteers which includes our officers, board, and committee members.
For this reason, we ask for your understanding. We work for the rescue on our days off, our lunch hours, or when we have time after work between family commitments. We often get as many as 100 to 200 emails per day and may not have time to respond the same day. Be assured we will do our best to answer all questions as soon as we can.
If you have not heard from us within 72 hours of your request please feel free to write to us again as a reminder. We may be working on finding the answers to your questions and have not gotten back to you yet. A friendly reminder never hurts.
