A mid-Michigan non-profit organization looking to reduce the large number of unwanted pit bulls and pit mixes just got a major boost in funding thanks to the Best Friends Animal Society. Charlotte-based Voiceless-MI was given an $8,000 grant from the animal society to help fund its “Fix-A-Bull” program. “Fix-A-Bull” is a program that provides spay/neuter operations for low-income families with pit bulls or mixes. “When I walked through shelters in Michigan and saw cage after cage of pits or pit mixes,” said Voiceless-Mi president Holly Thoms, “I figured there was a huge need there.” The “Fix-A-Bull” program has a put out a goal of spaying/neutering 177 pit and pit mixes over the next few months, according to Thoms. Only a few weeks in, they have already handed out 85 vouchers for the operation to be done.
