Tia Torres dedicates her life to running Villalobos Rescue Center, the largest pit bull rescue center in the country, where she works tirelessly to dismantle the unfair stereotypes placed on pit bulls. In fulfilling this mission, she also offers a fresh start to individuals recently released from prison who work for her as staffers and volunteers.

Pit Bulls & Parolees, returning to Animal Planet on Saturday, July 25, strives to give a new lease on life to dogs that have been discarded, demonized and abused due to the reputation of their breed. In the never-ending battle to save man and man’s best friend, Tia and her family now dedicate their lives to saving any breed of dog in desperate need of help.

After nearly 30 years in rescue, Tia thinks she has seen it all, but this season, New Orleans rescue life keeps her guessing. In the season premiere, Tia and the Villalobos team receive an unexpected call when a local adopter returns her new canine companion, Sweetcakes, soon after taking her home.

Mariah, Tia’s daughter, works to rescue Mr. Crowley, a well-behaved dog that was abandoned at a store after his homeless owner could no longer care for him.

Viewers also meet Alicia, an extremely emaciated dog desperate for a second chance at life after she is brought to the Villalobos dog boutique in the French Quarter.

Prepare for a new season of unforgettable ups and downs, including stories of resilience and solidarity.
