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.
Remember Little Hope, the baby Border Collie with the compound fracture we took in last spring...
We received these great photos from her dad, she is doing very well and is enjoying an active life.
Thank you again to all who donated toward her surgeries and medical procedures that allowed her to keep her leg.
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.
