FAWG, a member of the Best Friends Animal Society No More Homeless Pets Network, is taking part in the network's Holiday Adoption Promotion. The entire month of December, all FAWG cats 6 months and older can go home for an adoption fee of only $25.  All cats younger than 6 months will be the usual FAWG fee of $40 for one, $60 if you open your home to a bonded pair, $80 for a trio of kitties.

In addition, join us Saturday, Dec. 13, 9 am to 2 pm at Maggie's Playhouse Doggie Daycare, 2000 Auction Rd. in Fallon to meet all our cats and kittens in person. To beat the rush, check them out right now on our website and call us at 775 423-8650 to arrange to meet and adopt the perfect cat or kitten for your family.

Cat and Kitten Adoption Day was a Big Success!

Six wonderful FAWG cats and kittens found loving homes last Saturday at our adoption day at Maggie's Playhouse Doggie Daycare.

We';; be back at Maggie's Saturday, Dec. 13, with more cats and kittens looking for their special home for the holidays. See you then!

FAWG November Meeting: New date! New location!

The FAWG meeting scheduled for Thurs., Nov. 6 at the Library Annex, has been changed to Fri., Nov. 7, at The Pizza Factory. (2199 W. Williams, former site of Round Table Pizza)

The change was made because renovations to the Churchill County Library will make the meeting room unavailable from Nov. 3 until March 2015 while the library is operating out of the Annex.

This is our last meeting of 2014, and there is still lots going on: the Jr. High Craft Fair, the Amazon Gift Wrap, a holiday adoption event (date to be determined), as well as ongoing trap-neuter-return projects. To get involved in any of these activities, please join us at The Pizza Factory, and bring a friend.

Thank you to Steve Montana and the American Car Wash!

Fallon Animal Welfare Group is thrilled and honored to report that Steve Montana and the American Car Wash selected us to receive the latest gift from their Nickel Back program which provides financial help to community non-profits.  Their check for $1,140 will allow us to trap-neuter-return more than 20 cats in the coming weeks.

We are truly grateful to Steve and company for making this donation. With their help we can continue to reduce the number of cats entering the city shelter. Thank you, Steve!

Thank you to everyone at the Fall Yard Sale!

Thank you to everyone who came to our yard sale, donated to our yard sale, or helped out at our yard sale, making it a great success! Special thanks go to Kate Crook, Judith Rhoton, Debra Wellhausen, and of course, Michelle Seidman, without whom there would be no yard sale! We all owe Michelle a special thank you for her work before the sale collecting and organizing dozens of donations, her work throughout the yard sale pricing and selling and keeping everything on track, and her work after the yard sale heading up the clean up.

The proceeds from the sale will go to our foster & adopt and trap-neuter-return programs, with a portion set aside for The Lucy Fund, to help pet owners with emergency vet bills. Thanks again, and see you at our 2015 Spring Yard & Plant Sale!

Mars PetCare Biggest Little Pet Adoption success for FAWG kittens

Five kittens from FAWG -- Lilu, Jax, Basho, Ilsa and Mankel -- found homes at the 4th Annual Mars Petcare Biggest Little Pet Adoption last Saturday, September 6, at Wingfield Park in Reno. Thanks to the generous people at Mars who hosted the event they each went home with a bag of food, treats, toys and accessories. And FAWG came home with food and litter for our cats still needing homes. FAWG volunteers Michelle Seidman, Judith Rhoton and Chris Jensen all donated their time and energy to make the day a success.

If you need a new pet in your family, please check out our available animals. They'd all love to go home with you.
