Thank you for visiting Last Day Dog Rescue. We are a 501(c)(3) organization with a simple mission - saving animals. A no-kill rescue based in Livonia with foster homes across Michigan. We take in these beautiful transient creatures and do our very best to provide them with safety, medical care, and LOVE. Since 2007 saving thousands of dogs and cats. While we openly take in puppies and dogs who are in good shape, our focus is on saving those who are most likely not saved without our help. We were founded on the principle that all life is precious, regardless of breed, appearance, or age. Please consider adopting one of our dogs, puppies, cats or kittens.

See all the Dogs!
  Fairing - Sr Litter
Fairing is the sweetes little girl ever! Everyone who meets her falls in love right away. She is definitely a volunteer favorite. Fairing loves running and playing with her stuffed toys. She is a total cuddle bug and aims to please. She knows several commands such as sit, down, stay and come. She can be picky with her dog friends so slow intros are best. If you are interested in meeting, more about Fairing - Sr Litter
Proximo is so adorable and sweet. Everyone who meets him immediately adores him and thinks he's the coolest dog ever! Proximo loves to curl up close on the couch with people. He loves to be pet/rubbed/massaged around his neck, ears and jowls. He sleeps in the silliest positions and when sprawled out on his back, he loves to have his belly rubbed too. He's very energetic and more about Proximo
I’m Pippin (or Pipsqueak as my foster mom nicknamed me), a small 11lb yorkie mix (possibly a yorkie poo since my hair is so soft and curly)! I have separation anxiety so I like to be by your side when you’re home, cuddle, and eat treats. I would prefer to be the only pet in my new home, but I have the love of many dogs to give!    I will do my best to let you know more about Pippin
“A dark eyed beauty with a smile all her own.” Hi! I’m Ellie, a sweet, affectionate girl who is on a journey to find my forever home.  I was rescued from an abandoned yard and am so excited to have an opportunity to find a family that I can love. Training and trust have been key on the road to my transformation from orphan to loyal companion. I’m learning more about Ellie

  Lodge - Ct Litter
Hi I'm Charlie aka Lodge. I like long walks, and short walks. I love playing fetch with my ball, but I loose it A LOT! I love my people and want to be with them wherever they go (unless they are outside using a lawn mower or chainsaw then I'd prefer to stay inside.) I do not beg for food (how rude!) , but I love my treats. I get very excited when my people come home, and sometimes I more about Lodge - Ct Litter

Seniors For Seniors

Did you know that Last Day Dog Rescue has a "Seniors For Seniors" program? Animal lovers 65 years and over can adopt a select senior dog for only $100! Our senior dogs included in this program are listed on our Seniors For Seniors page. These very special dogs have won the hearts of our fosters and volunteers and we are sure they will win yours over, too!

As with all our dogs, we will also take our animals back in the event of an emergency or illness. So please tell all your senior friends! There is no reason to live alone without the love and devotion of a furever friend.
