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 - Next 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.
Thank you in advance !
Cedar's puppy emergency!
Cedar gave birth to eleven puppies on 02/08/15. Unfortunately she did not give them the proper care and seven of her babies did not survive.
We were able to get the last four of her pups safely to a foster home, where they have thrived.
With some dedication and a whole lot of love, Cedar's four surviving puppies were bottle fed, loved, and now know how much fun it is to be with people, and how good life can be!
Now 8 weeks old, they are eating puppy food mixed with formula on their own, have been started on their puppy vaccinations, and will be available for adoption at age 13 weeks. They will have had all three Parvo/Distemper shots, will be spayed/neutered and receive rabies vaccines prior to adoption. We are currently accepting adoption applications.
Chunky monkey Sable is full of wiggles and kisses. He's a happy boy, for sure! Would love to be part of an active family.
Fun loving Tippie Toes is always ready to cuddle and play. She's a very sweet pup. Tippie is great with other dogs and could learn to be with cats, too.
Sweet little SongDog may have lost the vision in his right eye because Cedar was not cleaning her pups properly. He is very spunky and it will not slow him down or prevent him from having a normal life.
Grace is the most adventurous of the bunch. She keeps things lively in her foster home. Miss Grace already has an adoptive home waiting for her.
International Rescue Effort - Persian Pups
Baran and Aidin have gotten settled in here at Dog Town. They are both doing great, and Baran is now using Ginger's wheel-cart to get around in.
Thank you to K9 Wellness Center in Reno, for helping us get her cart adjusted, and for showing us some exercises we can do to help strengthen her muscles.
The veterinarian who examined Baran's x-rays said that although her spine is completely severed, there is a chance she will be able to walk from muscle memory. They call it "spinal walking" and because the nerves and muscles are still intact, the hind legs can automatically follow along when the front legs are moving.
Her leg muscles have atrophied a bit, so we have some work ahead of us to get her rehabilitated, but we're in this for the long haul.
Aidin has an appointment on May 7th to find out what damage his eyes have sustained, and if he has any vision left. He is doing great and has already figured out how to use the doggie door, so regardless of the diagnosis, he is going to be just fine.
