(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.

By adopting a shelter dog, not only are you giving them a second chance, but you will also have a lifelong companion that will bring many years of love and devotion to your family. All dogs have been spayed or neutered, are current on all vaccinations, micro chipped, and heartworm tested. Visit the Quad City Animal Welfare Center and let our friendly staff assist you.
