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.
Dog Town is in the process of renovating our rescue kennels in order to provide a large (5000 SF) exercise/training/play area for our dogs.
Our goal is to replace the existing individual chain link kennels with heavy duty welded wire panels (made by Behlen), and re-purpose the chain link panels to construct the play yard.
So far we have purchased 14 of these, so we're about halfway to our goal of 30. They're expensive, almost $500 each, but they are made of heavy gauge welded wire so they last much longer than the chain link ones. Some of our original welded wire kennels are ten years old and still in great shape.
We would purchase these kennels from our local Big R Ranch Supply (in Fallon NV), as we have shopped around and found that they have the best price on them.
To receive a donation receipt, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org and request one.
Thank you in advance from our dogs!
