I have been an adjunct (prior to PhD) in Art History. I assume since
it is the same department the adjunct fee is similar. I received $2500
for one course, one semester.

"Hear our humble prayer for our friends the animals, especially for
animals who are suffering; for any that are hunted, lost, deserted,
frightened, or hungry; for all that must be put to death. We entreat
for them all thy mercy and pity and for those who deal with them we
ask a heart of compassion, gentle hands and kindly words. Make us
ourselves to be true friends to animals and so to share the blessing
of the merciful."
- Albert Schweitzer
