(Milan, IL) – The Quad City Animal (QCAWC) is excited to release our Pet Care Riddles & Tips for Kids book, "Fur-ever" Friends. This project was made possible by grant funding received from The Rock Island Community Foundation. "Fur-ever" Friends was written by Stacey Teager, QCAWC Community Services Director, Dee Anderson and Linda Taylor QCAWC volunteers, illustrated by Rock Island High School Art Students and designed courtesy of Mary Talbert. The Quad City Animal Welfare Center created "Fur-ever" Friends to teach children proper pet care. Research shows reading aloud to children teaches compassion and strengthens their reading skills. Books will be read and donated to schools, libraries, and community organizations through out the Quad Cities.
