Become a QCAWC Foster!


The Quad City Animal Welfare Center is looking for volunteers to foster kittens, puppies, mommas, and adult animals. Animals may be placed in foster homes for a variety of reasons: Illness, injury, too young for adoption, etc. By offering your time, energy, love, and home to an animal in need, you help prepare them for adoption into a permanent home. You also create valuable space in the shelter to accommodate other animals. Fostering may be needed anywhere from a few days to a few months! Just let us know what works for you! 

The Quad City Animal Welfare will supply you with all the resources - you supply the LOVE! 

If you would like more information regarding fostering please contact the Quad City Animal Welfare Center at 309-787-6830 Option #1. You can also email Amber, the Cat Care Manager at or Shayenne, the Dog Care Manager at

If you are interested in fostering please fill out and submit the QCAWC Foster Application.
