Thank you for making our Yard & Plant Sale a big success!


A big thank you to everyone who helped make our Spring Yard & Plant Sale the most successful sale we've ever had!  

Thanks to everyone who donated items, bought plants or yard sale treasures, or helped organize or work the sale. 

Special thanks to: Pat, Sandy, Mike, Marie, Nancy, Judith, Michelle S., CJ and his mom, John D. and Charlie B. all of whom helped by picking up donations, ordering plants, picking up plants, putting up posters, organizing and pricing sale items, selling items at the sale, and in a myriad of other ways.

We hope to see you all this autumn for our Fall Yard Sale. Donations now being accepted! 775 423-8650.

BARN CATS!

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  fawgnv@gmail.com 


Thank You McDonalds!


Thanks to everyone -- management, employees, customers -- who helped with the Fallon McDonalds pet food drive. Thanks to you we received cat food, toys, and cash -- all of which will help us care for the animals in our foster/adopt program. We really appreciate all you do -- and the cats do too!

Thank you Fallon Auto Mall!


2016 ended with a wonderful gift to us from the Fallon Auto Mall's "Pay it Forward" program. We were the very grateful recipients of a check for $2,950 which will pay for LOTS of vaccinations, spay/neuters, vet care, kitten milk, cat food, and other necessary care and supplies.  

We thank everyone at Fallon Auto Mall, and everyone who bought a new car in 2016 and asked that their donation go to "animal welfare."  You've made it possible for us to do a lot more in the coming months!

   

Thanks to all for a very successful Holiday Adoption!



Thanks to everyone for making our December holiday adoption promotion a big success! Fourteen cats and kittens found forever homes in time for the holidays.

Big thanks go to all the local merchants who let us post flyers in their businesses, John & Pat D. who raced around town putting up those flyers, Pat and Nancy for helping at our adoption day event, and especially Chen, Cindy, Stacie, Judith, Crystal & Cliff, and Marla for fostering the the felines who found homes.

Thanks to you all!





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.
