Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of the QCAWC is to operate a shelter for homeless animals, to offer a spay and neuter program and provide humane education. We are the only full-service, no-kill shelter serving the Quad-Cities Area.
We operate the Quad City Animal Welfare Center as a No-Kill shelter. There are many different understandings and definitions surrounding the term "No-Kill." Our center operates under the philosophy that we serve our community as a supplement to our local animal controls. While animal control shelters are funded with tax dollars, they are required to control the pet population, and unfortunately that often involves euthanasia. Because we accept approximately 50 percent of our animals from local animal control shelters, they do not have to euthanize the animal because there is no room. Our community is benefited by our willingness to accept, alter, vaccinate, and care for each animal until it can be adopted. Without our shelter, these animals would be otherwise be euthanized.
