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!

Thank you to Fallon Auto Mall!

FAWG sends a big thank you to Fallon Auto Mall who generously included us in their "Pay it Forward" community support program for the second year running. This year the Auto Mall surprised us with a check for a whopping $1,975! This gift will help keep our trap-neuter-return program running full steam through the winter months. With this generous donation we can further reduce the number of feral and free roaming cats in our town and the number of kittens entering the city shelter. Spring will look a bit brighter this year thanks to this gift. Thank you, to everyone at the Fallon Auto Mall.

Holiday Adoptions

Thanks to everyone who helped make our December Holiday Adoption a success! Throughout the month, 13 cats and kittens found loving homes. We thank every family who opened their home to a new pet this holiday season.
