An All Breed Dog Rescue

An awesome team of rescuers pulling, fostering and re-homing dogs from Northern Nevada and Northern California shelters. Spay, neuter and educate.



Res-Que is a registered 501c3 non profit all breed dog rescue located in Reno, Nevada. We adopt dogs mainly in the Northern Nevada / California area. We work with many small outlying shelters to rescue dogs and find them forever homes.


Res-Que was founded by Rhonda Shafer in 2009 as a distributor of dog food and supplies for local rescues. In 2015 Rhonda transfered the 501c3 to a group of dedicated rescuers.
