(Milan, IL) – October is Adopt A Shelter Dog Month! The Quad City Animal Welfare Center (QCAWC) will celebrate National Adopt A Shelter Dog month by offering the following adoption special starting Monday, October 8th through Wednesday, October 31st, 2012:

1/2 price dog adoptions (reduced from $100.00 to $50.00) for dogs that have been at the shelter for 6 months or longer and/or dogs that are 5 years and older.
