FAWG meets Friday, Feb. 5

FAWG meets Friday, Feb. 5 at The Pizza Factory, 2199 W. Williams in Fallon. Come at 5:00 to order dinner and catch up with friends; the meeting starts at 5:30.

This is our first meeting of the year. We'll recap 2015 activities, look at goals for the year ahead, and some concrete plans to meet those goals.

One key agenda item is forming a team to manage the Spring Yard & Plant Sale. Michelle Seidman, who has run all our yard sales to date, is unfortunately sidelined with health issues.**  While we don't expect any one person to take on all she usually does, we do believe a few of us working together can fill the gap. If yard sales are your thing, please come and lend us your know-how and experience! 

Questions? email us at fawgnv@gmail.com or call us at 775 423-8650.

** Michelle reports she is doing well!

Thank you everyone for a great 2015!

FAWG thanks everyone who helped make 2015 such a good year for cats in Churchill County.

Thanks to you we adopted out 61 cats and kittens, sent 95 to our no-kill rescue partners in Reno, and spayed/neutered a whopping 359 cats! 

We could not have done it without all of you who generously donated time, effort, and money. 

We thank you.

Happy Holidays!

Thank you Zappos!

Friday Nov. 27 through Monday Nov. 30, Zappos.com paid the adoption fee for every cat and kitten adopted from FAWG (and hundreds of other rescue groups and shelters across the country!)

Thank you, Zappos, for such a generous holiday gift to the animals. 

Community Cat Workshop

Join us for a fun workshop on Community Cats and Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) -- the humane and effective way to control free roaming cat populations.

Saturday, October 17
2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Churchill County Museum,
1050 So. Maine St. in Fallon 

We'll have videos and slides, a few necessary numbers and statistics, and a lively demonstration as we show you how to trap!

We'll have a variety of traps on hand and walk you through a TNR project, then send you home with a packet of info and resources.

If you or your neighbors have outdoor cats that you feed, come to the workshop! Whether you plan to trap the cats and take them to a vet clinic yourself, or prefer that FAWG do it for you, you'll find the information you need. 

Questions? Call us at 775 423-8650, or send us an email at fawgnv@gmail.com
