She says they are hoping to adopt out 100 pets this month, and they have already place about 29.  It normally costs $65 to adopt a dog and $45 for a cat, but this month Teague says it only costs $20.  She says they generally adopt about 30 animals every month, so they are hoping these last few weeks will help them reach their large goal.
