Dogs You've Helped!The Rescue

​We are an all-breed, all volunteer, 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization focused on the rescue of dogs forgotten and forsaken by humans. We primarily receive dogs from rural animal control facilities, as well as providing services to the Indigenous American communities which are typically without options for dealing with unwanted dogs. 

​We depend upon the generosity of our fellow animal lovers, as well as the occasional grant award, to keep moving forward in our continuous efforts to save lives through a combination of adoption and spay/neuter services. 
Please consider donating to Dog Town Rescue. We don't have a fancy facility, but you can trust that your money will be going directly toward providing life-saving care for dogs in need.

Very sweet, and very pregnant... this pretty girl had been dumped at the Lahontan Reservoir. 

Some campers took her to Animal Control in Fallon, where she was cared for until we could recue her. 

Certainly her puppies would not have survived in the 100+ degree heat we've been having. She is now safely in one of our foster homes.

She's so friendly and smart, we're hoping all goes well with the birth. Will let everyone know how she is doing. 
07/24/14 - Puppies have arrived! Eight babies were born this afternoon. Of the eight, one did not make it but the remaining seven are healthy and happy. Momma Spice is doing a great job of caring for them.
August 2, 2014. Dog Town Rescue is called to the Walker River Reservation to rescue three feral puppies. These pups have not been handled before, and are living in a den their semi-feral mother has dug beneath some trees.

The puppies will have to be trapped in order to catch them and bring them to safety.
The puppies gradually emerged from their den, and one by one, we were able to safely trap them.
These puppies will be cared for at Dog Town and socialized until they are they are ready for new homes. 

Your donations help us continue to save lives just like these.
Blossom from Schurz has been making great progress in her foster home! 

She is learning to walk on a leash, to come when called, and she's discovering how much fun it can be to live in a house and be loved.
Diego and Boone are seven year old brothers whose person died and there was nobody left to take care of them. They arrived at Dog Town the week of September 8th, and have made themselves right at home.

They are fairly large dogs, either very big Australian Shepherds, or smaller Bernese or Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs. 

The boys would need to be adopted together, they are very friendly and have outgoing personalities. They are good with other dogs, and humans of all ages. We will check them out with cats when they go to our vet for their rabies vaccinations. 

If you would like to give these handsome boys a loving home, please email us at: for an application.
Ghost is an eight year old make Shepherd mix  who has been on a long journey before finally finding a place at Dog Town. 

He started out in rural Nye County NV where he was surrendered to animal control by a woman's ex-husband. From there he went into a foster home, where it was discovered that he chases cats.

After that fiasco, he went to another foster in Reno, NV.
From Reno, it was arranged for him to go to a senior dog rescue in the SF area. Poor Ghost bombed out at that rescue, because he was having issues with male dogs that were allowed to roam loose and confront him.

Now he's here with us and we're looking for a forever home, with someone who understands the meaning of the word "commitment".

Ghost will need a cat-free home, preferably with a female buddy or a neutered male he can meet prior to adoption. He is a great dog who deserves a home where he can feel like he belongs and will be loved.

Please email us for an application, or for more info:
Pippi arrived at Dog Town the first week of September, seeking refuge from an abusive home. She has severe trust issues, and at this point in time, cannot be touched. 

Our volunteers will go easy with her, and gradually teach her that not all humans are bad, and that she will never be hurt again. 

Part of your donations go toward helping these abused dogs. When nobody else will help them, we are there to give them refuge and security.

We will keep everyone updated as to her progress
