CLEVELAND — Oct. 26 is National Pit Bull Awareness Day.

To celebrate the adoption of a bully breed, the Cleveland Animal Protective League is reducing adoption fees to $20 beginning Oct. 25 through Oct. 31.

Cleveland photographer and pit bull advocate Greg Murray will kick off the  APL's bully celebration with a Facebook Live at 3:30 p.m. Friday.

Murray's new book, "Pit Bull Heroes: 49 Underdogs with Resilience and Heart" features several APL alumni.

Sharon Harvey, President and CEO of the Cleveland Animal Protective League said, "Pit bull type dogs have tremendous heart and make wonderful family companions. We hope people will consider adopting a pittie during this Pit Bull Awareness campaign."

A new adopter must also buy a Cuyahoga County dog license.
