We are a group of individuals that have come together for the common purpose of addressing and dealing with the very difficult reality of rapidly growing populations of abandoned and feral animals in our communities. This situation is worsened by the lack of ordinances within Lyon County and the various townships within the county that would allow Animal Control to deal more effectively with felines.Our targeted areas of operation are Fernley, Silver Springs, Stagecoach, Dayton in Lyon County, Wadsworth in Washoe County, and Lovelock in Pershing County. . We attempt to greatly increase public and civil awareness and sensitivity by creating informal partnerships or strategic alliances between ARGONN, the various city and county councils, and the community as a whole to begin to resolve this tragic situation. It is always our intention to accomplish this in a spirit of partnership and political agreement while avoiding antagonistic or inappropriate confrontation.We believe in an aggressive TNR (trap, neuter, return) program for feral cats in addition to an effective ‘foster to adoption’ promotion for non-feral pets. This is being done in concert with community campaigns designed to encourage existing pet owners to spay or neuter each of their family pets. To assist us, we are extremely grateful to our local veterinarian clinics who provide low cost spay and neuter programs designed particularly for the abandoned and feral cat populations.We do not have a shelter facility and rely on foster families to raise kittens or take care of cats pending adoption. We also provide a resource referral service designed to address individual situations affecting both feral and abandoned animals.We are a fully functioning tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, incorporated in the State of Nevada which greatly enhances our efforts to develop partnerships and raise funds to achieve our objectives. We are a 501c3 charitable corporation (27-3980418 tax exempt status).
