AUSTIN — Starting Tuesday, Austin Pets Alive! will offer $25 adoptions at all their adoption locations for pets over three months of age.

The $25 adoptions will last through the end of October in the hopes they’ll see 200 adoptions in the week.

According to APA!, the non-profit is "leading the ASPCA Challenge, a nationwide competition among shelters that determines a winner based on the largest number of increased lives saved over a three month period in two years."

“Winning $100,000 would mean hundreds of Central Texas animals’ lives saved,” said Ellen Jefferson, executive director of Austin Pets Alive! “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.”

Supporters can vote for Austin Pets Alive! once daily through the end of the month at www.votetosavelives.org.
