Austin Pets Alive! is offering $25 adoptions at all adoption locations for all pets older than three months starting Tuesday through the end of the month, with a goal of 200 adoptions for the week.
APA! currently leads the ASPCA Challenge, a nationwide competition among shelters that determines a winner based on the largest number of increased lives saved during a three-month period in two years. The contest ends on Oct. 31, and APA! has currently adopted out more than 1,400 cats and dogs that count towards the challenge.
“Winning $100,000 would mean hundreds of Central Texas animals’ lives saved,” said Ellen Jefferson, executive director of APA! “We’re so thankful for the community support we’ve received and hope that we can reach our goal of 200 adoptions by the end of the month, bringing us one step closer to taking home the grand prize.”
