Curbside Appointment Based Adoptions

Effective Thursday, January 6th our adoption process has changed from in-person to curb side appointment based.

If you are interested in adopting call 309-787-6830 Option #1 please leave your name, the animal’s name you are interested in adopting, and your phone number including area code. We will call you back between the hours of Noon and 4:00 pm. We kindly ask you have your phone handy and be ready for our call. If we are unable to reach you we will move on to the next caller. All calls received by 4:00 pm will be returned on the same business day.

Adoption questionnaires will be completed by phone. You will put you on a brief hold for adoption approval.

If you are applying for a cat, kitten, or small animal and are approved, a QCAWC Adoption Counselor will immediately go over the adoption contract, do a verbal Covid screening, and set a Pick-Up Appointment time for you to pick up your new cat/kitten/small animal. We ask that you DO NOT bring a carrier, we will provide one for you. When you arrive for your Pick-Up Appointment, please contact us at 309-787-6830 Option #1. A QCAWC Adoption Counselor will bring your new cat/kitten/small and supplies to your car. Please have on a mask when we approach.

If you are applying for a dog or puppy and are approved, a QCAWC Adoption Counselor will do a verbal Covid screening and will set a time for you to come to the shelter for a Meet & Greet Appointment. For your Meet & Greet Appointment, we request only one person per household, no one under the age of 18, unless approved by QCAWC Adoption Counselor. When you arrive for your Meet & Greet Appointment, please contact us at 309-787-6830 Option #1. A QCAWC Adoption Counselor will advise you which door to enter. Your temperature will be taken and you will go through a brief Covid visitor screening. If your meet and greet goes well, we will have you return to your car. Your Adoption Counselor will call you to go over the adoption contract and then bring your new dog/puppy and supplies out to you. Please have on a mask when we approach.

In order to handle as little cash as possible, we kindly ask for payments to be made by credit/debit card, or by using the PayPal Button below.
