Direct adoption of pit bulls clears Minneapolis committee

MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

The Minneapolis city council's public safety, civil rights and health committee on Wednesday approved a resolution to allow for the direct adoption of stray pit bulls and other "bully breeds."

Currently, Minneapolis Animal Care and Control works only with rescue group to adopt stray and surrendered bully breed dogs into new homes.

Minneapolis euthanized 152 adoptable animals last year. About half of the pit bulls and bully breeds at animal control end up being euthanized, and supporters of the change in ordinance believe direct adoptions could help save more dogs.

The ordinance must still pass the full city council.
