Thank you for visiting Last Day Dog Rescue. Last Day is more than just a name, it is the situation all of our dogs were faced with. Now all of our wonderful dogs get a second chance at life! Dogs coming into our non-profit 501(c)(3) rescue were saved from high-kill animal shelters or were going to be sold for research. Read more about our organization

 Patriotic Pets



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.
