Keeping fighting breed dogs as pets has endangered people in all society; nobody is safe from this growing danger. These photos of humans mauled to death by dangerous fighting breed dogs are only some of the people who would beg you to reconsider your choice, if only they could.
In the 10-year period from 2005 to 2014, pit bulls killed 203 Americans and accounted for 62% of the total recorded deaths 326. Some of the most heartbreaking and vicious attacks were not from Pit bulls that belonged to dog fighters or people who raised them to be a weapon as many claims, but by long time family pets that were loved, treated like family and grew up with their victims.
I have always thought of Animal Planet as a Family channel, so I was shocked that you brought Tia Torres back on air after she attempted to open a brothel to support her Pit Bulls. Not to mention the harassment targeted towards Merle Barnes, president of the Old West Ranch Property Owners Association and was acting as such when she wrote a letter to her neighbors in Old West Ranch (where Torres wanted to move her rescue).
This sweet girl braved the cold weather the..’s weekend in PA to raise money for Villalba.

Summer, who is 14, has lived almost her entire life at the center, but this week sees her finally getting a chance at finding an owner.
She has severe arthritis and when she undergoes checks it is clear that there isn’t much time before Summer’s quality of life deteriorates.

In 2011 Tia Maria Torres had planned to move Villalba to a small town called Tehachapi, California, around 75 miles north of where it had operated in Agra Dunce. It appeared to be an ideal place for ARC to relocate with the overabundance of Pit Bulls in Kern County and a prison facility in town, with newly released inmates looking for work.
ARC secured all the proper permits yet at the final moment Kern County did not grant permission for the rescue to conduct their business in the remote area of Old West Ranch, Tehachapi. Losing all of her personal savings spent on the Tehachapi project and hundreds of man-hours Tia Maria Torres and the ARC were forced to remain at the Agra Dunce location.
As the rules regarding kennel permits were becoming increasingly strict and expensive in Los Angeles County, the rescue announced on November 13, 2011, that they would be moving the facility out of California in order to survive financially. On January 1, 2012, Tia Maria Torres arrived with the last group of 30 of the total 160 dogs making the state of Louisiana their one and only permanent location.
The New Orleans native grew up without a father and spent most of his days on the streets hanging out with older kids, constantly seeking their approval. Unfortunately, he got mixed up with the wrong crowd and at the age of 17 was arrested for armed robbery and attempted murder.
While incarcerated, during a heated game of football with some other inmates, Earl sadly lost the use of his right arm. It's pretty darn beautiful to see how someone with a violent and checkered past was able to bounce back and, after being given a chance, demonstrate that he's not only a stand-up guy, but is constantly putting others before himself.
In an emotional episode of the show, Earl openly discussed his struggles with getting sober and attributed his ability to do so to his work helping canine companions at the ARC. Despite the setbacks, Earl has consistently demonstrated a devout mindset when it comes to the rehabilitative properties of the work that organizations like the ARC does for their respective communities.
He expanded his testimony with the subject of opening canine programs for inmates and personally attested to the significant change it made in his own life. Source: Facebook Earl was, by all accounts, written off as a career criminal with no hopes for redemption, but now, he's got a great life for himself.
His job with the ARC is about as fulfilling as it goes, and he's a popular TV figure on a beloved Animal Planet series.
