We've expanded our family by one with Daisy, who is a fifteen-week-old Shepherd mix that we just rescued. She is a great puppy.
In the course of looking for a rescue puppy, we stumbled across a great organization named Last Day Dog Rescue, which focuses on rescuing dogs from the "urgent" list in shelters and pounds across lower Michigan and parts of Ohio with an emphasis on those shelters who euthanize by gas or those shelters who sell the dogs in their care to research labs. Last Day Dog Rescue is a fantastic organization that really does a great job placing dogs of all ages and sizes. It is run by volunteers, all of whom do a great job!
I wanted to spread the word about Last Day Dog Rescue because I just discovered it while looking for a puppy. When we could not find a suitable puppy from the local pounds and humane society, an Internet search turned up Last Day Dog Rescue. It's definitely a great place to look if you're looking to rescue a dog.
Here are a few pictures of little Daisy. My kids absolutely love her!
