Two pit bulls in Colorado Springs have received a stay of execution after people helped the dogs' owner pay $600 in kennel fees.

The dogs are in court-ordered lockup at a shelter after a woman said the pit bulls attacked her dog in September. The case against pit bulls Hydro and Tessa will be heard in court Oct. 16.

Until then, the dogs are being held at a shelter. The dogs were to be euthanized Friday, but the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region gave their owner, Cristy Lemon, until the end of business Monday to pay $600 in kennel fees. Nearly a dozen people have offered to help Lemon.

But Humane Society spokeswoman Ann Davenport says another $600 will be due Oct. 15.
