Pit Stop Program Aims To Reduce Pit Bull Population

One northern Michigan humane society is doing their part to reduce the number of pit bulls that end up in shelters.

Little Traverse Bay Humane Society in Harbor Springs started what's called the “Pit Stop Program.”

Anyone, from any county, can bring in their pit bull or pit bull mix to get spayed or neutered, micro-chipped and vaccinated for rabies.

This is completely funded by donations.

The no-kill shelter says the pit-bull breed is hard to adopt out.

Anyone who owns a pit bull can stop by the humane society to fill out a voucher.

Though the actual service is done at a clinic in Pellston, the humane society wants you to bring the dog with you when you sign up.
