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.
Located on private property in Churchill County, NV, we have very low overhead costs. This enables us to put the majority of all donations received directly toward caring for rescued dogs. Through our process of rescue, rehabilitate, and rehoming, we are able to make a positive contribution to our community and improve the lives of formerly 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.
It's safe and easy to donate online with PayPal!

Each year, Dog Town takes in an average of 55 unwanted dogs and puppies from the Walker River Reservation. Due to a lack of resources, residents are left with no means of dealing with the overpopulation problem.
Dog Town has instituted a spay/neuter program for tribal members, to help bring down the population of unwanted dogs. Your donation will help us continue to save lives through spaying and neutering, and provide a better life for these dogs.
Our little guy Sasha came to Dog Town with an old injury and now he needs some serious help. He had a broken pelvis when he was just a young pup, and now it is causing some problems.
According to his x- rays, his little pelvis was badly broken, which is now causing him some problems.
One hip is dislocated, the other hip joint doesn't look quite right (it's not in the 'cup' as it should be), and there is a decent sized chunk of bone that looks to be loose in his digestive tract area.
They also did a finger test on his rectum and said that it was tighter/narrower than it should be. They gave us a prescription for stool softener so it would be easier for him to potty.
*** Update on Sasha 08/20/16***
Sasha was seen by Sierra Veterinary Specialists in Reno last week. The good doctors there performed the CT scans necessary to evaluate his condition.
It turns out that the blockage in his colon is really a rock, that could normally pass through but due to the constriction from the broken pelvis, it is stuck.
The vets are sending the CT scans to the University of Nevada, Reno, to construct a 3-D model of his pelvis. This will allow the surgeon to come up with the best way to repair it.
We will keep you updated as to his progress, and let everyone know when his surgery is scheduled.
