The Huntington Town Board recently approved waiving adoption fees for pit bulls and pit bull mixes at its animal shelter during October in observance of National Pit Bull Awareness Month.

Officials also approved a free spaying and neutering program in October for pit bulls and pit bull mixes. The program, similar to a previous one, will be at the North Shore Veterinary Hospital in Northport, a partner in the initiative.

The initiatives are designed to promote the health, safety and welfare of the community, improve the health of pit bulls and pit bull mixes and encourage their adoption.

The Huntington Animal Shelter is at 106 Deposit Rd. in East Northport.
