​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 !

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 had his eye appointment on the 7th and it wasn't the news we had been hoping for. He is completely blind in both eyes with no hope of ever regaining his sight. He is also a prime candidate for glaucoma, which is a painful swelling inside of the eyes. The vet is recommending we have both of his eyes removed in order to spare him from this painful condition.

Right now his eyes are okay, very low pressure inside them so we don't have to undergo the surgery for a while, hopefully. 

We will schedule regular appointments with the eye specialist to monitor the pressure in his eyes, and when it starts to build up, we will have the procedure done.

Cocoa's story

On 07/28, we were called by tribal law enforcement to assist with removal of an unwanted dog. She was very frightened and sad.
Cocoa threw up some bad things she had been eating in order to survive. A trip to our vet was the first thing on our agenda. 

We also noticed that her eyes looked cloudy. She was diagnosed with Pannus, an eye condition occurring often in German Shepherds. Her eyes were slightly scarred from neglect, but she still has good vision. She will need special eye drops 2x daily to keep her condition from getting any worse.


08/10/15 - Cocoa had her spa day at Dirty Dog Grooming in Carson City NV. 

She looks and feels so much better. No more dirty, matted up fur. 


Happy-happy Day!

Cocoa was adopted on 08/16 by the same family that adopted Pepper from us almost two years ago. 

They are getting along wonderfully, and we are thrilled that our sweet girl will have an awesome life, filled with love.
Change to our August adoption schedule:
We will be at Petco on the 29th.
