Watch Pit Bulls and Parolees

Pit Bulls and Parolees is a reality television show chronicling the day to day operations of the Villalobos Rescue Center, and the centers founder and owner, Tia Torres. While watching the show you will get to see some of the rescues, some of the adoptions, and you will also get to see the parolees hard at work cleaning kennels, feeding, watering, and walking the dogs.

Villalobos meaning "house of wolves" in Spanish, began as a wolf rescue in the early nine-teen nineties. It is now the country's largest pit bull rescue center. Tia, along with her daughters, Mariah and Tania, her sons, Kanani and Keli'i, and the half dozen parolees employed at Villalobos, take care of over two hundred Pit Bulls that are currently at Villalobos.

Villalobos rehabilitates and retrains all of the Pit Bulls that they rescue, and hope that one day they will all be adopted into their forever homes. The rescue center cost about a thousand dollars a day to operate. They depend on the fees from the adoptions of the Pit Bulls, and the donations that they receive to keep up the day to day operations of the center.

Villalobos has recently relocated from California to New Orleans and also has a center in New Mexico. The center in New Mexico is run by a former parolee, Mando. This center is for the lifers. Lifers are the Pit Bulls that Villalobos rescues that can not ever be adopted due to court orders, or just because of certain behavior issues. The New Mexico center is not currently open for operations, however the New Orleans location is up and running in full swing.

Pit Bulls and Parolees gives the world a better understanding of what it takes day to day to run a successful animal rescue center, and gives the world a better understanding of the Pit Bull breed. Tia Torres is also giving a second chance to the parolees that she employs, who might not find employment anywhere else because of the crimes that they have committed.
