BALTIMORE (AP) — An animal shelter in South Baltimore says adoptions of cats and dogs are up more than 13 percent from last year.

The Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter says that it has had 3,225 adoptions in 2010. The shelter says adoption promotions and specials on fees have helped more animals get adopted.

Starting Jan. 2 the shelter will have another special. Some animals, including ones that have been in a shelter for more than a week, will be available for adoption for $1. The promotion ends Jan. 31.

The Baltimore Humane Society also says adoptions are up.
