What?     Fallon Animal Welfare Group "Lunch in the Garden" Meeting

When?    Saturday, June 8 at 11am -12pm

Where?  Workman Farms Nursery   

Bring a lunch and let's meet in the lovely garden at Workman's Farms Nursery to hold our first official meeting under new management. We have lots to discuss and plan for with our upcoming Maddie's Pet Project adoption event and we need to discuss establishing a board, new members, increasing fosters and volunteers. Where would you like to see FAWG expand and what goals do we need to reach over the coming years? Your input is needed and appreciated!

FAWG is experiencing organizational and personnel changes. We have so much more to do to save the lives of countless animals while helping our community to thrive humanely! This is an opportunity for more people to donate their time, skills, experience, and ideas to improve the lives of cats -- and dogs and other animals -- in Churchill County. 

Fallon Animal Welfare Group (FAWG) was formed in the spring of 2010.  Since then we have neutered over 1,900 cats, resulting in a 50% decrease in the number of cats entering the Fallon city shelter.  We have adopted out over 500 pet cats and barn cats, and sent more than 400 cats to our no-kill rescue partners in Reno.

None of these achievements would have been possible without the help and support of many many people in our community.

Please attend a meeting or one of our adoption/fundraising events to find out how you can make a real difference in the lives of animals in your community.

Calling all Cat Lovers

  Calling all Cat Lovers! 

Do you have a huge heart and a strong desire to make a difference in the life of an animal? 
We are seeking loving foster parents for our homeless kitties while they are awaiting forever homes. We have lots of wonderful kitties, all ages, all sizes, and all purrrfect personalities who would love to share your pad and maybe even learn the ropes about loving and living with human companions. 

Won't you consider making a huge difference in the life of a kitty who otherwise has to live in a cage with minimal human contact and limited love? We do our best to spend some quality time with all the kitties in our care but there are so many and just not enough of us to go around. They NEED you!

Please, Please consider becoming a kitty foster parent. If you have a dog, no worries, with a little oversight, kitties and dogs can become great friends! We will help with food, guidance, vet expenses, etc. All they need from you is a place to snuggle, patient leadership, care, and LOVE! 

Please call JeanE for details today!


A big thank you to everyone who volunteered, donated items, purchased items, helped with advertising, and in every other way, made our yard sale a great success!

We'll do it again in the fall! Thank you!


#ThankstoMaddie our participation in the Maddie's Pet Project-Nevada Home for the Holidays Adoption Day November 16 & 17, 2018, resulted in a grant of $9,300 to Fallon Animal Welfare Group. 

We adopted out 31 cats and kittens during this promotion at no cost to the adopter. In return, a grant of $300 per pet was given to us thanks to the generosity of the founders of Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation and Maddie';s Fund

This generous gift will get 2019 off to a great start for us. Every animal we take in will have access to the veterinary care he needs, whether routine shots, x-rays or lab work, dental work or surgery. Our trap-neuter-return work will continue with no slow-down and we'll continue to place every feral cat needing relocation in a good barn cat position! 

Our 31 cats were a small part of the 1,665 cats and dogs throughout Nevada who were adopted during  Maddie's Pet Adoption Days. #ThankstoMaddie life is getting better for cats and dogs across our state!

#Thanks to Maddie


A big  THANK YOU to everyone who made our Home for the Holidays Adoption such a great success!  
  • Thanks to Maddie's Pet Project in Nevada for sponsoring this event, 
  • Thanks to all our FAWG volunteers who helped with the adoptions, 
  • Thanks to all our FAWG foster caregivers who cared for our cats and kittens until they found homes,
  • Thanks to Shannon and Maggie's Playhouse Doggie Daycare for again letting us use their space to adopt out our cats, and
  • Thanks to everyone who opened their hearts and took another cat (or 2!) home this holiday season! 
Thirty-one cats and kittens showed up at the adoption, and all thirty-one went home with loving families!

We were one of many groups across Nevada participating in Maddie's Pet Adoption Days. This event was part of a statewide campaign, Maddie's Pet Project in Nevada, which aims to elevate the status of cats and dogs across the state through partnerships that increase adoptions from animal shelters and rescues and improve access to veterinary care in under-served areas. 

Maddie's Pet Project in Nevada is made possible by the generosity of Maddie's Fund and the Nevada-based Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation.
