Thank you to the Dirty Dawg!

A big Thank You! to the Dirty Dawg Salon and the PD Ladies for Paws, and especially to the Dawg's super generous clients, for the wonderful fund raising they did for us. 

The Dirty Dawg provided grooming space and supplies, the PD Ladies provided the muscle, and their clients responded with an amazing show of generosity.

All donations and fees from dog washings were split between FAWG and CAPS.  The cash we received will really help with our vet bills. In addition, the Dirty Dawg's clients donated a mountain of food, litter, bedding, carriers & kennels, toys and accessories. We drove off with the car literally packed to the roof. 

We have already handed out much of the food to people caring for feral cats. With kitten season coming we know the rest of these donations will soon be put to good use also.

This generous gift could not have come at a better time. Thank you to everyone who helped to make this happen. We cannot tell you how much we appreciate it!

A big thank you to everyone who helped make our Yard Sale such a success: Pat, Marie, Nancy, Rob, Mike, Matthew, Sandy, Debbie, and everyone who donated items, bought items, helped set up and put away, or stopped by to say hello and lend their support.


We currently have lots of feral and semi-feral cats looking for jobs as barn cats! All these cats have been neutered, vaccinated (rabies & FVRPC) and ear-tipped. They are ready to move into your barn, garage, garden shed. workshop, or other shelter. 

In exchange for food, fresh water, and shelter from weather and predators, these cats will provide you with fast, efficient, rodent control. 

To learn more about these cats and how to provide a good new home for them, call us at 775 423-8650 or email us at 

RIP Buster Brown

Buster Brown came to us in June. He was old, ill, missing an eye, with one ear badly damaged, in desperate need of dental work, and with his fur in terrible condition. We were told that years ago he had had a family. But then his family moved and left him behind. For a few years neighbors provided food and water and a porch for him to sleep on. One day the mail carrier on his street saw Buster Brown's food bowl sitting, empty, on top of the family's garbage can. She asked the people what happened to the cat she was so used to seeing on their porch. They explained they no longer wanted to care for him as he was old and sick and so had stopped feeding him in the hope that he would go away.  The mail carrier found him a few days later wandering down the street, scooped him up and brought him to us.

When we took Buster Brown to the vet he tested positive for FIV -- the feline version of HIV. This virus weakens the cat's immune system making him more susceptible to disease. Cornell Vet School says in the US between 1.5% and 3% of cats test positive for FIV. It is found more commonly among unaltered males who, in fighting with each other for territory, spread the virus  through deep bite wounds. We had Buster Brown neutered and vaccinated and he lived happily and peacefully with several other cats in a foster home. He was a true gentleman and there was no danger of him biting any of his feline roommates.

Because his FIV status and his age made adoption more difficult, we submitted an application for him to go to Best Friends Animal Society's sanctuary in Kanab, UT.  He was accepted and placed on the wait list for FIV-positive cats. We looked forward to the day we would take him to the sanctuary to live out his senior years in comfort and safety surrounded by Best Friends caregivers and volunteers.

Unfortunately, Buster Brown developed a cancer in his mouth and his health deteriorated quite rapidly. With heavy hearts his doctor and foster mom helped him go to the Rainbow Bridge.  RIP, Buster Brown. We are very glad we got to know you and are only sorry your stay with us was so short.
