Mission Statement

With our ongoing TNR (trap-neuter-return) of community cats, our successful foster-to adoption program for kittens and cats, and our pet food distribution network, we will protect and save as many lives as possible.

Headlines

Adoptions, adoptions, adoptions!

We are so proud and thrilled to be a PetSmart partner in both Carson City and Sparks because it has greatly boosted our adoptions to over 100 just in the first half of 2018!  Without the opportunity to showcase our kitties in a storefront setting, we would not be able to foster nearly as many as we do.  

UPDATE:  137 adoptions as of the end of September.

2nd Annual Shoe Drive

It's that time of the year once again!  That means it's time to clean out your shoe closet and donate your gently worn or unworn shoes to us to raise much needed funds for our ongoing TNR and foster-to-adoption programs.  Drop off your donated shoes at the Carson City Library, or the Dayton Library, or the Lahontan Medical Complex Suite 4 in Silver Springs, or Royal Floors in Fernley.  Call us at 775 229-3708 if you would like us to pick up your donation.  Funds2orgs pays us for the shoes collected and then sends them to micro-enterprises in developing countries to be sold at minimum prices to folk who would probably otherwise not have shoes at all.


TNR - great progress being made!

Our TNR program is moving right along.  Our year-to-date numbers are looking great! As of the end of August we have spayed/neutered 184 cats in the Fernley, Silver Springs and surrounding areas.  This achievement is made possible by donations from YOU plus your family and friends.  If you know of someone who is feeding feral cats, or an area where there is an accumulation of feral cats, please let us know - we can and will help! 

About Us

  • 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 Services 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.  Our pet food distribution network helps to minimize the chance of any pet going hungry.
  • Our tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit status greatly enhances our efforts to develop partnerships and raise funds to achieve our objectives.
