Rescue Spotlight: Last Day Dog Rescue
Posted by Abby Rosenberg on September 16, 2012
Filed under PetMeds Spotlight

Based in Livonia, MI, Last Day Dog Rescue (LDDR) is a non-profit organization staffed entirely by volunteers. They are committed to rescuing dogs that were unwanted, abandoned or owner surrenders.  These dogs are rescued from high-kill animal shelters in lower Michigan and parts of Ohio, where they were at risk for being euthanized or being sold for research, and are given a second chance at life. Last Day Dog Rescue is not a shelter, but rather a network of foster homes dedicated to providing love and care for these dogs until a permanent home is found.

Interested in adopting? The Last Day Dog Rescue website maintains a list of dogs and cats available for adoption, including puppies, seniors, and even a group called “Name Your Own Price.”  The latter is a group of fully vetted dogs that are so eager to find a loving home, they are letting you name the price!  The LDDR “Seniors for Seniors” program allows animal lovers over the age of 65 to adopt a senior dog (seven years and older) for a reduced fee of only $35.

If you find a pet you’d like to adopt, your first step is to complete their online adoption application. The rescue group will do a vet check and home visit, and then a meeting will be arranged so you can meet your potential new pet. You can also check out the group’s adoptable pets at one of the adoption events in your area.

If you aren’t able to adopt, there are lots of other ways you can help this group. You can volunteer to provide a foster home for a dog in need, or volunteer to assist in other ways. LDDR gratefully accepts your tax-deductible monetary donation, and notes that “Any amounts are greatly appreciated and will go directly towards saving these wonderful animals.”  You can also donate much-needed supplies such as pet food, toys, treats, dog beds, etc.  PetMeds was proud to help support this organization with a donation of pet supplies.

As this organization notes, “LAST DAY is more than just a name, it’s the situation all our dogs were faced with.”
