Local organization trying to find homes for pit bulls

Pit Bull dogs are sometimes considered a dangerous breed but a pet adoption facility in Columbus say that's not always the case.

To help find these dogs a home Paws Humane is running an Adopt-A-Bull adoption special until the end of April.

Paws Humane say these types of dogs are often overlooked because of the misconceptions about the breed.

They are often the last to get adopted, leaving them in the facility for months at a time.

One of the dogs has been there for more than a year.

Devyn Seifert an Adoption Counselor at Paws Humane told News Leader Nine, "We see a lot of Pit Bulls come into our shelter pretty much everyday. A good majority of them are Pit Bulls. We want people to get over the stigma of bad scary Pit Bulls and adopt one and make them part of your family."
For $25 you can take one home vaccinated, micro chipped, spayed or neutered.
The special is for Pit Bull breeds that are 6 months and older.
