A local animal shelter is so full of pets that need homes, they're cutting their adoption fees in half in February.
The Quad City Animal Welfare Center in Milan has reduced adoption fees for animals that are at least one year old to $50 per dog and $20 per cat for the month of February 2014.
"Typically February is a slower month for adoption for us so unfortunately that means that we're full and aren't able to except other cats and dogs," said Patti McRae, executive director.
Dogs and cats adopted from QCAWC are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. In addition to sheltering homeless animals, QCAWC offers animal wellness clinics and education for pet owners.
"We are the only full-service, no-kill shelter serving the Quad-Cities Area," according to the shelter's Facebook page.
The shelter is at 724 West Second Avenue in Milan, Illinois.
