​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'd like to take this opportunity to thank the Petfinder Foundation for awarding us their Emergency Medical Grant in the amount of $1000!

We applied to help cover the veterinary costs for Rucker's leg amputation, and we just received our check last week.

Schatzi Update




Nummi is here! We picked her up on January 2nd, and got her safely here. 

She was spayed on Monday the 4th,  and returned home on Tuesday evening.

No more puppies - we've found homes for about 40 puppies from her in the past three years. That would have been 40 unwanted dogs, just in three years from one dog. Kind of opens one's eyes to why it's so important to have your dog fixed.

Her owner was so happy that she's finally getting spayed, and can go back to the life she is comfortable with. She's semi-feral, and her owner can't get a leash on her, but she is happy, fed and taken care of.
Starting off the new year in a good way! Back out at the Walker River Reservation on New Year's Day.

We put out a trap for the momma dog we have been getting puppies from for the past three years. We had so far been unsuccessful in catching her.

She is a semi-feral Black Lab and her owners were unable to catch her in order to get her fixed. 

We were determined to finally catch her and get her to our veterinarian for spay and vaccinations.
Happy New Year!
Thanks to the generosity of our friends, Schatzi had her eye surgery and it went great!

Her damaged right eye was removed, and the cataract was taken out from her left eye.

She now has vision in her left eye, and we couldn't be happier!

She's still in recovery mode, but if the left eye heals up properly, she will soon be available for adoption to some lucky home.

Thank you to everyone who has stayed by her side through her ordeal. 

Little Willow came to Dog Town from the Walker River Reservation. She and her sisters, and momma, will all be ready for adoption soon. She is now in a foster home receiving some extra attention. Little Willow is very shy around people, so we're going to give her more exposure in the hope of teaching her that people are good. 

We're getting some help from Baran and Aidin, and the rest of the resident dogs here at Dog Town.
