August 13th, 2022 at 11am Local ARGONN Volunteers Continue to Humanely Address Feral Cat Challenge in Yerington

Please join the volunteers at ARGONN ANIMAL RESCUE GROUP OF NORTHERN NEVADA on Saturday August 13th at 11am in the Yerington Library Meeting Room for the monthly meeting.

The Yerington ARGONN began in Jan 2022 with a goal to address the feral cat challenge locally and humanely.

As of August 11th, 2022: 103 COMMUNITY CATS HAVE BEEN TRAPPED, NEUTERED/SPAYED, VACCINATED AND RELEASED!

The ARGONN acronym stands for ANIMAL RESCUE GROUP OF NORTHERN NEVADA.

The website  argonn.org  states that ARGONN was, “founded in 2010, Animal Rescue Group of Northern Nevada (ARGONN) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that exists for the sole purpose of saving the lives of dogs and cats in an area with few resources available to ensure their safety.”

  • TNR (trap-neuter-return).  The only proven humane way to control over  population amongst feral or free-roaming cats.  The end result is happier neighborhoods and healthier cats.  ARGONN is the only organization in Lyon County to provide TNR countywide.
  • Foster-to-adoption. We are a rescue organization that relies on in-home fostering to prepare our kittens for the best possible adoption outcome.  Saving lives and finding loving forever homes is our mission! And we’re always looking for new foster homes!
  • Pet food distribution.  Donated pet food is made available at local food pantries, senior centers, and to individuals  facing hard times.  Our program covers Fernley and the Hwy 50 corridor of Lyon County.  Pets are family and we aim to ensure that they never go hungry,

Once a community cat is captured, it is transported by volunteers to Dayton, Reno or Carson City for spaying or neutering.

Please join the ARGONN group on Saturday, August 13th at 11am  in the meeting room at the Yerington Library to be a part of the humane solution in addressing the Yerington feral cat challenge.

These volunteers (and felines) would be grateful for your assistance: transporting, donating items/plants/baked goods for semi-annual yard sales, setting & checking live traps, etc.

“The more horses to pull the wagon, the easier it is to pull!”

The event is finished.
