Very Successful Adoption Day!

Thanks to everyone who helped make our 
July 30 Adoption Day such a great success.

In just a few hours, 9 cats and kittens found new homes. 

We thank Maggie's Playhouse for hosting the event, 
our great foster caregivers for taking such good care of these pets, 
and everyone who leant a hand with the adoption..

We plan to do it all again soon! 
Meanwhile, you can check out who's available for adoption here on our website. 


Our Spring Yard & Plant Sale was a great success this year.

Thanks to everyone who donated items, bought items, and helped before, after and during the sale.

Special thanks to Gail, Chris, Nancy, Maxine, Judith, CJ & his great set-up crew, Elizabeth, the Flower Tree and Workman's Farms.

See you all in the fall when we'll do it again. 


This week, April 10 - 16, is National Volunteer Appreciation Week.  As FAWG is an all-volunteer organization, we rely on dozens of dedicated people volunteering to make a difference in the lives of cats in our community. 

We appreciate and thank every one of you who has helped us in the past, and hope you will continue to do so in the future.

Here are some of the ways you can help:

  • foster a cat or litter of kittens until we find them a forever home.  We supply food, shots, vet care -- you provide the TLC
  • join our trap-neuter-return program to improve the lives of free-roaming cats
  • transport cats and kittens to our no-kill rescue partners in Reno
  • help at our booth at upcoming events such as
    • Bark in the Park Sat. May 7
    • our Spring Yard & Plant Sale, Sat. May 14
    • July 4 Picnic in the Park
    • Farmers' Markets throughout the summer
    • and more!
We'll be at the Fallon Home & Garden Show this coming weekend April 16 and 17. Stop by our booth to sign up for volunteer opportunities, or email us at

And thanks again for all you do!
