This week’s Pet of the Week is Tyson! He is an 8-week-old pit bull mixed puppy, and he doesn’t come to the shelter alone! His sisters, Sunshine, Belle and Lulu are also all up for adoption. Visit the QC Animal Welfare Center (QCAWC) website for more information.

Also, QCAWC will be the featured charity at the Quad Cities Balloon Festival in East Moline. It gets underway Friday, and runs through Saturday at the Rock Island County Fairgrounds. It’s open from 4-8 p.m. For more information, please visit the event website.
