HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - An animal shelter in Western Maryland is marking Valentine's Day by offering pet adoptions for the steeply discounted price of $14.
The Humane Society of Washington County says the special applies to all animals, all day Tuesday.
Adoption fees are normally $75 for cats, and anywhere from $25 to $300 for dogs, depending on their age and the length of time they've been waiting to be adopted.
