Mark's Furry Friends

Since 2006 veteran journalist Mark Welp has hosted a weekly pet adoption segment on various central Illinois tv stations. In that time, more than 3700 dogs and cats featured in segments have found forever homes! 


Mark travels to the TAPS No-Kill Animal Shelter in Pekin each week to introduce you to three animals looking for good homes!
