Fallon Animal Welfare Group Meets this Thursday

What?        Fallon Animal Welfare Group Open Meeting

When?      Thursday, April 11, 7:00 pm

Where?      Holy Trinity Episcopal Church Parish Hall
                   Corner of Churchill St. & W. Fairview St. in Fallon

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.

FAWG is now going through organizational and personnel changes. This is an opportunity for more people to donate their skills, experience, and yes, it will take a bit of time as well, to improve the lives of cats -- and dogs and other animals -- in Churchill County.

We can write about what FAWG has done over the past nine years, but what FAWG accomplishes in the future will be up to people like you.

Please attend this meeting if you can to find out how you can make a real difference in the lives of animals in your community.

#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.
