About Us


  • ARGONN has helped thousands of outdoor free-roaming cats through our TNR (trap-neuter-return) program to live healthier, more peaceful lives in familiar surroundings without continual reproductive cycles.  Eliminating cat over-populations by providing free or low-cost spay/neuter options for feral cat caretakers is our goal.
  • ARGONN is not a shelter so we rely heavily on our foster care program.  Fostering felines is a wonderful way to ensure that every kitten or cat rescued is given the very best opportunity to thrive and become highly adoptable.  Saving lives and finding loving forever homes is our mission! Can you foster a kitty?  If so please contact us for more information.
  • ARGONN makes donated pet food available for those who need help.  We work closely with local food banks, senior centers and individuals facing tough times.  Our distribution program includes Fernley and the Highway 50 corridor of Lyon County.  Pets are family and none should ever go hungry, or be taken from the human that loves them for lack of money to provide food.
