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

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.
