CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Animal Protective League is running an adoption program this holiday season called “I want a PittoPotamus for Christmas” that includes lower fees for pit bull-type dogs.

“We’re all familiar with the song “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas,” but at the Cleveland Animal Protective League, we’re encouraging adopters to take a PittoPotamus home for the holidays! Pit bulls and pit bull mixes are often the most overlooked dogs in shelters, yet these blocky-headed pups make for great family dogs with their funny antics, cuddles, and need for plenty of walking and playtime,” the Cleveland APL said.

The fees for “pittie-type” dogs is currently reduced to $50 and that also includes the licensing fee. Normally, adoption fees are $125 for dogs over 5 months old, in addition to a $21 county license fee.

The event runs from Friday to Dec. 24.

“These adorable pups are the perfect addition to any family this holiday season,” the Cleveland APL said.
