    For more than 20 years, Tia Torres has dedicated her life to Villalobos Rescue Center, the largest pit bull rescue center in the U.S. Tia has offered a fresh start to more than 50 parolees and a new lease on life to dogs that were discarded, demonized and abused, often due solely to the reputation of their breed. In ANIMAL Planet's PIT BULLS & PAROLEES, Tia and her family bond together to fight the never-ending battle and emotional rollercoaster of running the nation's largest pit bull sanctuary. For Tia, each NEW DAY brings happiness or heartbreak - and sometimes, both.

    PIT BULLS & PAROLEES is produced for ANIMAL Planet by 44 Blue Productions and Rive Gauche Television. Rasha Drachkovitch, Billy Cooper and Dave Luce are the executive producers for 44 Blue Productions. For ANIMAL Planet, Lisa Lucas is the executive producer, and Patrick Keegan is the producer.

    That's great! I love that show. It's good publicity for the Bully breeds.

    Can't wait until next season!

    Too bad it wasn't the series finale. The entire Torres crew and the show do horrible things for this breed.

    Maybe once or twice. I just couldn't help myself. Such an opportunity doesn't come up all that often, so naturally I had to jump on it!

    I think Tia's heart is in the right place. She seems to truly care about animals, period. No doubt the Animal Planet production company forces and suggests story lines
    and events. But by and far this lady started this on her own, without fanfare, to help dogs. I think she has a special place in heaven, as well as everybody that selflessly gives to those without a voice like animals. I admire what she and her family have accomplished.

    We rescue hounds and can only do 1 at a time due to my health, space and other limitations. I wish I could do more, but even one dog at a time we (my family) saved and re-homed over a dozen hounds last year. One was in a local shelter for a year (a repeat offender!) that no one wanted. He was 3 days from being euthanized right after Christmas 2015. A year later he is happy, healthy and has gained from 25 lbs to 60 lbs (he had stopped eating due to depression). Loves his home, family and his "doggy family". There are more hounds in shelters than any other breed combined (yes I am including hound mix too!). Mainly I think because people see them as loud, annoying, and difficult to train. They are actually loving, sweet, great family dogs that are easily trained because they will do ANYTHING for a biscuit lol! People ask if we "hunt" our dogs----no----my dogs "hunt" biscuits in my kitchen and we hide treats in easter eggs outside to fine tune their natural "search and rescue" instincts. It literally takes < 5 minutes to "train" them to do so.

    After I was diagnosed I was so depressed, I had worked so hard and accomplished so much (not just income but I published---wrote part of a medical textbook---was a top sales rep as well as a speaker and authority on several critical care topics). It was difficult to walk away but I had no choice.

    Not wanting to use this as therapy lol.....but there is a sense of genuine giving when you help animals. I applaud Tia and her efforts. If we all rescued 1 or 2 dogs there would be no need for any shelters or rescue organizations. What an accomplishment THAT would be, right?

    Thanks for reading, no doubt all of you love dogs the way I do!

    Not really. Tia is a nutter who warehouses dogs and provides them with very little in the way of appropriate exercise and mental stimulation, many that would have been euthanized by anyone with ethics due to temperament and other issues, in makeshift cages far too small for a bulldog to live humanely, often multiple dogs per cage...which is a blatantly stupid thing to do with APBTs and other bull breeds/mixes. And she has always craved fanfare.

    I agree with you. If you see several episodes where they work tirelessly to catch an injured or sick dog and rush it to the Vet, it warms your heart. She fires the parolees who do not truly love her dogs. She also takes in all sorts of breeds. She reaches out to help other rescues in need. Her love for the dogs and how she taught her kids to love them is really inspirational.
