Little Traverse Bay Humane Society Continues Pit Stop Program

Posted: Updated:

One northern Michigan humane society is trying to prevent pit bulls and pit bull mixes from ending up in their shelter.

The Little Traverse Bay Humane Society in Harbor Springs is continuing their 'Pit Stop Program,' thanks to a new round of grant money.

The $20,000 grant will pay for any pit bull or pit bull mixes in Emmet County to get sterilized, microchipped and vaccinated for rabies.

It's free to the pet owner.

The humane society says pit bulls often end up in shelters and are hard to adopt out, so they're trying to be proactive.
