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.
It's safe and easy to donate online with PayPal!
We're having our first ever Holiday Jewelry Boutique - This December!
We are accepting donated jewelry, purses, and other women's accessories, to be sold at our fund raiser.
It's not too early to drop off your donated items, we will be accepting donations through this coming November.
So clean our your closet, jewelry box, and help support our efforts to make the world a better place for our canine companions.
On September 22, we took little Schatzi into our Dog Town family, with the hope of saving her life.
She was surrendered to animal control, who contacted us after taking her to the vet. We gladly agreed to take ownership of her, and provide whatever medical care she will need. She is between 4 - 6 years old, and some type of small breed dog, maybe a Miniature Pinscher?
The story we received was, Schatzi was acquired over the weekend from an unknown person at Lake Tahoe. The person who got her surrendered her today to animal control. We have no idea from where she originally came, and probably will never know for certain.
She has mammary tumors, which were a concern but they did a chest x-ray and her lungs are clear. The issue with that, was if the tumors were malignant and had spread to her lungs, there would be no hope for her.
After her condition has improved, we will have her mammary tumors biopsied, which will most likely decide her fate.
Here is a video, put together by our friend Kippy with Geminai Graphics. You can truly see this little girl's spirit and will to live.
Thanks to her foster mom, for helping with both her physical and psychological rehabilitation.
Sometimes it just feels good to loved.
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank the Petfinder Foundation for awarding us their Emergency Medical Grant in the amount of $1000!
We applied to help cover the veterinary costs for Rucker's leg amputation, and we just received our check last week.
On October 25th, we welcomed Juno to the Dog Town family. She arrived extremely pregnant, almost ready to give birth. She came from the McDermitt Reservation, just north of Winnemucca, NV.
On the 29th, Juno gave birth to six healthy babies! They are all doing great and are growing like little weeds. Stay tuned for updates!
