Join us at the Country Fair

FAWG will have a booth at the annual Country Fair & Ranch Hand Rodeo the weekend of August 1-2-3 at the Churchill County Fairgrounds at the corner of Hwy 95 South and Sheckler Rd.

This is a fun family event with lots of vendors, games for the kids, music, food & drink, and carnival rides, in addition to garden & craft competitions, the rodeo, and a Civil War battle field reenactment. Admission to the fair, which runs Friday 5 pm to 11 pm, Saturday 9 am to midnight, and Sunday 9 am to 3 pm, is free.

While you're there, stop by our booth to say hello, see photos & bios of our adoptable animals, learn how you can foster an animal with us, and get the latest info on current spay/neuter programs in northern Nevada.

Thanks to Everyone

who made the Spring Yard and Plant Sale such a success!

We have a lot of people to thank, all of whom pitched in and helped: 

 -- Gail Macdonald and Leslie Page Tobias who did a splendid job with the plants

-- Elizabeth Saenz, Judith Rhoton, Debra Wellhausen, who all donated time and effort to setting up and selling items

-- Kate Crook who organized and bagged hundreds of books

-- all of you who donated sale items and/or plants and came to buy a few things to take back home

-- and most of all Michelle Seidman who ran the whole affair, picking up donations year round, organizing the sale, and working the entire weekend. Without Michelle there would be no yard sale, at least, not one as successful as those she runs. 

The sale replenished our busy checking account (lots of kittens in need of kitten milk, shots, and spay/neuters down the road) and let us add to The Lucy Fund -- our fund to help people with emergency vet bills for their cats and dogs.

Thank you all!

Big THANK YOU to Fallon Auto Mall

FAWG sends a big Thank You! to everyone at Fallon Auto Mall for awarding us a generous gift through its 2013 "Pay it Forward" program which supports local charities in our town. The donation from Fallon Auto Mall will let us trap-neuter-return even more cats in 2014, as we work to decrease the number of cats entering the city shelter and thus save more lives. Last week we started to put this gift to good use as we neutered the first four barn cats of 2014. We thank everyone who made this donation to FAWG possible.

This feral kitty proudly shows off his "tipped" ear which tells the world "yes, I've been fixed!"
