MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Wisconsin Humane Society is offering discounts to those who want to adopt pit bulls or pit bull mixes.

WISN-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1enR2H7 ) the Humane Society has an influx of pit bulls. The dogs are typically harder to place because of restrictions by landlords or insurance requirements.

To make it easier to find homes for these animals, the Humane Society campuses in Milwaukee, Ozaukee and Racine are now charging $79 to adopt an adult pit bull and $179 to a adopt pit bull puppy. That's a more-than $100 discount for the puppies.

The Human Society is getting more pit bulls partly because the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission needed space for animals recently seized in a dog-fighting ring. WISN says the seized dogs are not being offered for adoption.
