Fall 2023 is the perfect time to meet a new friend! We here at US 104.9 have teamed up with UScellular and the Humane Society of Scott County to bring you the pet of the week! We spotlight a different pet looking for a forever home every week. Today we are meeting a dog who has been looking for a family for a while now.

Something really special about this event is that UScellular is donating $50 each week to the Humane Society for our pet of the week.


The Pet Of The Week

Meet our 104.9 pet of the week Kid Charlie!


Kid Charlie is about 3 years old and 52 lbs. He loves squeaky toys and any ball he can chase… but he hasn’t quite mastered the retrieving part of fetch yet. He also loves water! We set out a kiddie pool and filled it up and he hopped right in and laid down.

We think he would like a moderately active home and has the potential to do well with other pets too! He does have some vision problems in one eye though and can be spooked, so we think a home without small kids would be best for him. If you're looking for a guy who loves life just as much as you (or maybe even more!), this is your guy!

Stop by and ask to meet Kid Charlie during our adoption hours: Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays 12 pm-6 pm or Saturdays & Sundays 12 pm-5 pm.


P.S. We are still running a Name Your Price Adoption special through the end of the month for adult dogs and cats, so that means we YOU get to choose the adoption fee you pay! And yes, you can choose $0 too!

It's pumpkin pickin' time in the Quad Cities. Pumpkins make great fall decorations and they are obviously fun to carve. If buying a pumpkin at a store doesn't cut it and you want the full experience of a pumpkin patch, we have the full list of pumpkin patches throughout the Quad Cities. If we are missing any local pumpkin patches, email us here.
