​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!

Schatzi is now available for adoption!

Her eye has healed up from surgery and is good as new, and she is doing great on insulin 2x daily.

She is such a loving little girl, we are hoping that someone who knows her story will open their home to her. 

Schatzi is about 6 years old, housebroken, walks great on a leash, and is very affectionate.

Each year, Dog Town takes in an average of 55 unwanted dogs and puppies from the Walker River Reservation. Due to a lack of resources, residents are left with no means of dealing with the overpopulation problem.

Dog Town has instituted a spay/neuter program for tribal members, to help bring down the population of unwanted dogs. Your donation will help us continue to save lives through spaying and neutering, and provide a better life for these dogs. 

03/17/16 - we took in this momma dog and four puppies. 

This is just one of many dogs we have rescued from local reservations. 

On 03/17/16, we kicked off our new Tribal Spay/Neuter Program, to provide help to dog owners in need of services.

Your donation will help sustain this important program, and you will know that you are part of the solution.

There aren't enough homes for them all!
Roco is our latest rescue from Tehran, Iran.

He was found nearly starved, with a broken jaw and facial bones shattered.

Roco underwent initial surgery to repair his broken jaw, and required some facial bones to be removed after they became infected. He was left with a hole in the roof of his mouth, which interferes with his eating.


Roco has been approved for surgery and is scheduled to have his mouth fixed on April 28th. We have an estimate of $700 for the tissue graft surgery and follow up - pain meds, antibiotics, etc.

We're asking for donations to help with this surgery. It's the last step in getting him ready for a real home

Donations may be made in the following ways:
1. Using the Paypal link on this page
2. By mail: Dog Town, PO Box 2978, Carson City NV 89702, or
3. By calling Quail Ridge Vet at (775) 267-4888 and making a payment on our account.

Roco is a very sweet boy who has so much love to give.  He will be available for adoption to some lucky family soon.
Roco's veterinary records from the vet in Tehran tell a sad story of what happened to him.
