Wisconsin Humane Society offering discounts on pit bulls adoptions

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - If you want a pit bull at home, it's getting cheaper to find one.

The Wisconsin Humane Society of Milwaukee is offering discounts to those wanting to adopt pit bulls or pit-bull mixes.

Officials say they've had an influx of pit bulls lately, in part because space was needed for animals recently seized in a dog fighting ring.

Media reports say the dogs that were seized are not being given out for adoption -- but it still leaves a lot of pit bulls available. They're normally harder to place because of insurance requirements, or restrictions by landlords.

The Humane Society hopes to make it easier to find homes for those pit bulls, by offering discounts of up to $100 for puppies at its facilities in Milwaukee, Racine, and Ozaukee counties.
