s temperatures soared past 100 degrees Sunday, workers at the Austin Humane Society were trying to keep hundreds of animals cool after their air conditioning broke.
Because the animals are braving such high temperatures, the society is waiving all adoption fees today and Monday.
The air-conditioning unit blew out about 4 a.m. Sunday. Volunteers have brought in fans and ice, but employees hope to adopt out twice as many pets as normal, said Amanda Ryan-Smith, a spokeswoman for the Humane Society. She said there were 219 animals at the society this morning.
