WHS reduces fees for pit bull type dogs

MILWAUKEE –   The Wisconsin Humane Society is offering significantly reduced adoption fees for all pit bull type dogs at their Milwaukee, Ozaukee and Racine Campuses. The fee to adopt an adult bully breed is just $79 and the fees for puppies under one year old are $179.

Included in all cat and dog adoptions are spay/neuter surgery, initial vaccinations, deworming, micro-chip implant, heartworm testing for adults, a certificate for a free veterinary exam, and a 30-day gift of ShelterCare Pet Insurance with a valid email address

“We currently have many wonderful pit bull type dogs available for adoption,” said Angela Speed, director of communications at WHS. “And with the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission’s recent intake of seized dogs from a dogfighting case, we’re hoping to increase our pit bull adoptions so we can continue to transfer more dogs from MADACC to help alleviate their space issues, and find great new homes for these awesome dogs."
