Quad City Animal Welfare Center Endowment


The mission of the Quad City Animal Welfare Center is to operate a shelter for homeless animals, to offer a spay and neuter program, and to provide humane education to the public. It is the only full-service, no-kill shelter serving the Quad City area. The center operates under the philosophy that it serves the community as a supplement to 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. By accepting approximately 50 percent of its animals from local animal control shelters, the Center makes sure that animals are not euthanized due to a lack of room. The Quad City community is benefited by the Animal Welfare Center’s willingness to accept, vaccinate, and care for each animal until it can be adopted.

The Quad City Animal Welfare Center Fund allows the organization to carry out its services. The fund ensures that animals in the Quad Cities will be given the chance to find a loving home.
