Last Day Dog Rescue is basically a scam that steals money from unsuspecting people who want to adopt a dog or other animal. They first require that the person and their home is approved, and if it is, they are then determined to get the person to adopt immediately to "save a dog's life." So, adoptions are done without all the relevant information or time spent with the dog to get to know what its personality is like. The adopter is required to sign a "contract" that states that the adoption fee, hundreds of dollars, will not be refunded if the adopted animal is returned for "any reason." So, when the adoption fails, as is often the case, because the dog has some disease or disability, is not spayed or neutered, is not house-broken or even lived in a house before, is not trained to walk on a leash or come to its name, etc, including many other problems that can come up when adoptions are rushed and manipulated on unsuspecting people who cannot spend 24 hours a day to care for a dog with many problems, LDDR keeps the adoption fee and turns around and collects another adoption fee from another sucker.

after filling out their application I received a follow up email asking about my vet and why my dog wasnt taking heart worm meds. I explained that my dog now and my past dog which we had for 15 years until we had to put her down for health reasons have never been on heartworm meds and they have never had any health problems. After explaining this i them received another email which was their denial letter which contained a list of items why you can be denied which none of them applied to us. not one person ever talked to us , they made this decision based upon nothing. we would had been able to provide a loving home for a dog but instead they made it impossible for that to happen. this coming from an orgaization who says they need help finding homes for these dog and cats. i am sure they would take a donation from me but dont let me adopt a pet from them, I guess i am not good enough for that

Last Day Dog Rescue is a truly amazing organization. I was amazed to see the unbelievably large and diverse network of Sponsor-families that are willing to step-up and give these dogs homes until they are adopted by a loving family. From our work, I know of two dogs that were adopted, and in each case, they praised LDDR at their professionalism in caring first about the animal, then about the family. They place a high-value on finding each animal a loving family with a healthy environment, which ensures adoptions are sound and secure. Afterwards, I've received countless emails from friends and acquaintances that they ALSO have adopted their dog(s) from LDDR. They are a true gem in Southeastern Michigan and give these animals the care and devotion they deserve.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that when it comes time for my family and I to adopt a dog, I will be helping LDDR find a home for a great dog.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them a larger platform! The word really needs to get out about what LDDR does for these animals!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

they care so much for the animals!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely personable and outgoing. You can really tell how much they want to find loving homes for their dogs.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save countless animals from a horrible environment! Many come from abusive situations or kill shelters; no animal should have to be put down just because they're not adopted right away!!

Ways to make it better...

I had more room to adopt another pet!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

finding more volunteers to sponsor an animal. If you're reading this, give them a call -- there is no better feeling than saving an animal; they'll love you forever for it!

One thing I'd also say is that...

you should seriously consider spaying or neutering your pet unless you are considering breeding them (for the right reasons).

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

Last Day Dog Rescue is a great organization, the largest animal rescue group in Michigan. They work to pull dogs from high kill situations (like pounds that euthanize via gas chamber or sell to research). As a volunteer for this group, I help to transport dogs from fosters to adopters, vets, and adoption events. I also provided a temporary foster home for a dog in need of a place to go.

More Feedback

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing adopters meet their new pets, and animals from death row get rescued and placed in forever homes.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it smaller. It is hard to manage so many dogs, but great when you get personal one-on-one experiences with specific dogs.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the smiles on the dogs' faces and meeting the other volunteers!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

AMAZING and DEDICATED!!!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

open a physical location so our dogs were all centally located.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to devote to it. It is difficult to box off an entire day to do transport work.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

that if you commit to fostering we cannot guarantee whether it will take a week or several months for your foster pet to go to adoption.

One thing I'd also say is that...

it is difficult not to get attached to your foster pet.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
