Desert Rescue Animal Sanctuary


Welcome to Desert Rescue Animal Sanctuary

This fundraiser is to help save this precious girls leg. Tara is only about 2 1/2 y/o, she's a sweet little Italian Greyhound who unfortunately let her curiosity overshadow her good sense and broke her leg. We are seeking help to raise funds so we can have this surgery done and save Tara's leg. Such a sweet young dog deserves to live life fully and without pain - can you help?

Spay/Neuter Education and Support. All animals are spayed or neutered (where applicable). before being adopted out. We educate individuals on the importance of spay/neuter and refer them to low-cost clinics.

Rescue, Adoption, Lifelong Shelter. Desert Rescue Animal Sanctuary, provides homeless, surrendered, abandoned and abused animals with a safe and loving place to stay until they can be adopted into permanent, caring families. Those who can not be adopted receive a permanent home at the Sanctuary. We provide all animals with traditional, homeopathic, and holistic medical care.

Safe Haven for Wildlife. cesert Rescue Animal Sanctuary supports and protects our local wildlife. This is especially true of the wild horse herds which populate our area. We strive to help them in any way possible, working in conjunction with the Spring Mountain Alliance, to keep them part of the great American West. We also have applied for our rehab permit so that we can start working with protected wild animals in the state of Nevada.

Meet Elsa our Spotlight Dog!
Elsa, our beautiful American Eskimo girl is looking for her forever home. She came into Desert Rescue from off the streets (thrown out by her owners, literally) pregnant approx. 6 months ago. She had two beautiful puppies who have found a forever home. She has now completely recovered from her pregnancy, has her weight back, full coat (which by the way is so luxurious and soft wonderful to cuddle with on those cold nights!), and ready to find her forever home. She is a very sweet loving dog who desperately needs love. That is all she ever asks from a human.

Elsa gets along with other dogs as long as they aren't very dominate. She also gets along with cats, but doesn't really like tortoises. She has been trained to leave them alone when told but will bark at them. Elsa is very easy to train as all she wants to do is please her humans. She is crate trained, been leash trained (was terrified of a leash when she first came in), has been papered trained and now just needs a permanent home for her life to be complete. Her age is estimated to be about a 1 1/2yrs and she will need to be spayed prior to placement.
