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.

Diego and Boone are seven year old brothers whose person died and there was nobody left to take care of them. They arrived at Dog Town the week of September 8th, and have made themselves right at home.
They are fairly large dogs, either very big Australian Shepherds, or smaller Bernese or Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs.
The boys would need to be adopted together, they are very friendly and have outgoing personalities. They are good with other dogs, and humans of all ages. We will check them out with cats when they go to our vet for their rabies vaccinations.
If you would like to give these handsome boys a loving home, please email us at: email@example.com for an application.
Ghost is an eight year old make Shepherd mix who has been on a long journey before finally finding a place at Dog Town.
He started out in rural Nye County NV where he was surrendered to animal control by a woman's ex-husband. From there he went into a foster home, where it was discovered that he chases cats.
After that fiasco, he went to another foster in Reno, NV.
From Reno, it was arranged for him to go to a senior dog rescue in the SF area. Poor Ghost bombed out at that rescue, because he was having issues with male dogs that were allowed to roam loose and confront him.
Now he's here with us and we're looking for a forever home, with someone who understands the meaning of the word "commitment".
Ghost will need a cat-free home, preferably with a female buddy or a neutered male he can meet prior to adoption. He is a great dog who deserves a home where he can feel like he belongs and will be loved.
Please email us for an application, or for more info: firstname.lastname@example.org
Pippi arrived at Dog Town the first week of September, seeking refuge from an abusive home. She has severe trust issues, and at this point in time, cannot be touched.
Our volunteers will go easy with her, and gradually teach her that not all humans are bad, and that she will never be hurt again.
Part of your donations go toward helping these abused dogs. When nobody else will help them, we are there to give them refuge and security.
We will keep everyone updated as to her progress
For September only - we will be at PetSmart on the 13th as normally scheduled, but will be at PetCo on the THIRD Saturday, rather than the last Saturday of the month.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Pippi - updated!
September 23rd - Pippi is making good progress on her road to recovery.
Watch how gently she takes the treat from our volunteer's hand. She is starting to make eye contact and not appear as agitated when we enter her yard.
Sheba and three male puppies
are still waiting to find forever homes. The pups were born approximately 05/22/14, they are German Shepherd and Black Lab mixes.
All have great dispositions, and are very happy to be with other dogs. They can be a bit reserved when meeting new people, but warm up quickly.
