​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.

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. 

As of 10/25/16 (7 months into our program) Dog Town has provided 38 spays and 12 neuters for dogs on the Walker River and Stillwater Reservations.

Shaggy arrived at Dog Town on September 22nd, after she was picked up as a stray and nobody ever came looking for her.


We noticed some sores beneath her matted fur, and took her to our vet. She had several painful lesions on her right side, so she was immediately put on antibiotics to help prevent infection.

Shaggy was diagnosed with low thyroid, so she is now receiving daily supplements to help her feel better. 

She also suffers from seizures, so we have her on medication to get them under control. 

 Shags is such a sweet girl, and we are blessed to have her with us. She is a bit senile, so she probably won't be put up for adoption. We love her, and she will always have a home here with us.
Sasha is recovering nicely after having his pelvis implant surgery. Big thanks to Sierra Veterinary Specialists for their amazing work.

Sasha was just neutered and will be having FHO surgery (to put his thigh back into the hip socket) in a few weeks, after he has completely healed up from his pelvis surgery.

Thank you to everyone who donated toward his veterinary care! He will be available for adoption following his last surgical procedure.
