Pets aliveAustin Pets Alive! is offering $25 adoptions for pets over three months old through the end of October; the nonprofit’s goal is to adopt out 200 pets this week. The push is part of the nonprofit’s participation in the ASPCA Challenge; the animal shelter with the largest number of increased lives saved over a three month period in two years will win $100,000 to use in its rescue work. Austin Pets Alive! is currently in first place. It is also in the running for the $25,000 community engagement award: the animal shelter with the most votes online will win.
