Rose has moved to Utah

Rose, our lovely calico girl with cerebellar hypoplasia, was accepted into Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and has made the move to Utah.

Cerebellar hypolpasia (CH) is a disorder of the cerebellum part of the brain making it difficult for Rose to walk, or eat and drink unassisted, or use a litter pan.  CH can be caused by various types of trauma, but is most often the result of unvaccinated pregnant cats being exposed to panleukopenia ("cat distemper"). Any kittens who survive, and most do not, can exhibit varying degrees of CH.

Best Friends has years of experience providing quality lives to animals like Rose who come to them with a variety of physical and/or behavioral issues. Rose will receive the best care possible while there. The best news? Her caregivers at Best Friends are confident they will be able to place her in a loving adoptive home.

Spring Yard & Plant Sale Thank You!

A big thank you to everyone for making FAWG's Spring Yard & Plant Sale a success!

Yard sale proceeds fund our trap-neuter-return and foster/adopt programs, with a portion set aside for The Lucy Fund, to help pet owners with emergency vet bills.

We'll be doing it again come fall. Meanwhile, look for our booth at the Fallon Farmers' Market and other community events throughout the summer.

Thank you to everyone at the Velvet Rose!

The Velvet Rose Dog Salon Dog Wash Benefit for FAWG was a rousing success!

There were dogs both big. . . . .
and small

and in-between.



Our heartfelt thanks to Debra and Robert for hosting this event, and to their wonderful helpers Tammy, Ben, Samina, and Michelle.

The dogs got bathed, FAWG received a BIG donation, and everyone had a good time. Thank you, Velvet Rose!
