(Milan, IL) – The Quad City Animal Welfare Center, Rock Island County Animal Care and Control/QC Paws, and the Humane Society of Scott County have joined together to recognize National Spay Day as Operation Spay Day 2013. Pets who are spayed or neutered do not add to the heartbreaking tragedy of over population, and animal shelters are not over burdened with the unwanted animals. Spaying and neutering is also important to a pet's health.


To mark this important event, the Quad City Animal Welfare Center and Rock Island County Animal Care and Control/QC Paws will offer $5.00 cat spays or neuters every Tuesday in February by appointment. The Humane Society of Scott County will off $5.00 cat spays or neuters through a voucher program.

Spays and neuters are being scheduled by appointment, please call for more information:

Quad City Animal Welfare Center, 724 West Second Avenue, Milan 309-787-6830 ext.26 or ext. 27;
