Freedom Ride / Transport
Nothing beats the feeling of witnessing the look on a dogs face when he realizes he's on his way to a better life. Be part of that experience by joining the Transport Team.

Freedom Ride
  • Transport for dogs from Toledo at 5:30pm to Farmington Hills at 8:00pm on Thursday nights each week. Even if you can only do a trip a month, the transport team can use you!
  • Transport a dog from an animal shelter, to a veterinarian office or kennel, or to a foster home.
  • Transport a dog to/from adoption events and special events.


Last Day Dog Rescue events are a fun way to get to know the other volunteers and dogs in your area! After you join LDDR you can RSVP to events you can attend. This is perfect for LDDR fosters and volunteers who want to know about upcoming adoption events they can bring their foster dogs to or help by transporting a dog. Our volunteers handle dogs at the events, sharing their attributes with potential adopters. What better way to get a doggie fix? All it takes is a few hours on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
