If you visit any animal shelter across the county, no matter the location, or the demographic there is one breed you will most likely find.
Pit bulls are the most common animal to end up in shelters.
Corrie Prater with Mountain View Humane Society says that is due in part by the large number of puppies that Pit Bulls or larger dogs can have.
"They can have up to eleven puppies, and that is often too difficult for owners to take of," Prater said.
The mission of Mountain View Humane Society is to spay and neuter as many animals as possible to help reduce the amount of animals that end up in shelters without loving homes.
Now open in two locations, the humane society is responsible for spaying or neutering a total of 17,397 animals. 7,230 of those are dogs. 704 of those dogs were pit bulls.
Thanks to a grant made possible by PetSmart, the Humane Society is offering to spay or neuter your pit bull for only $20 during the month of August. There is no income restriction and is open to all Pit Bull owners. There are only seventy-five spots available.
