How To Help

As a non-profit animal shelter, QCAWC must rely solely on donations from our generous supporters, our adoption fees and our services. Our mission is a shelter for homeless animals, to support a spaying and neutering program, and to provide humane education. You can take part in our mission by volunteering at the shelter or at our events, making a donation.

We are participating in Prairie Farms Dairy's Our Caps Your Cause program! It is a simple and easy way for us to raise money for the shelter.

Just buy a gallon or half gallon of Prairie Farms white or flavored milk (sold at Hy-Vee stores), and enter the code under the sticker on each cap.

For every cap entered, Prairie Farms donates 5 cents to our program. Visit this page for more info or to start entering your codes!
