Mission: Our multi-programmed organization makes us versatile in our teachings and education of this controversial, yet maligned breed of dog. Our inmate program:,is home to "Pets In The Hood" in which we work exclusively with high risk youth in various capacities. Our newest program "Canine Career Corps" is a vocational program offered to inmates awaiting their last year of incarceration and also offers an outreach internship to parolees. We also work in conjunction with L.A. City Animal Services in our obedience training classes: "For Pit Bulls Only". These are offered free to the public at any of the L.A.City Animal Shelters. All of these programs have one goal in mind: to teach what it takes to be a responsible and loving dog owner and to teach compassion for mankind as well.

Donors beware!!!!!! Villalobos is a huge front for criminal activity, misuse and abuse of donation dollars and merchanise. The fact that they have not posted tax returns for years with guide star should tell you something,. It's a fact that they don't pay income tax when paying their "employees" and only pay in cash or screw them by not paying them at all ,should get the IRS involved. I've witnessed donations being stolen by volunteers and used for personal use by villalobos employees. I've witnessed a desperate plea for food although their storage units were full and food was being given out to volunteers and employees for their own dogs.... There are numerous RV trips across the county that they justify by bringing a few dogs on board to give away to other rescues even though their are qualified applicants waiting for them. Tia often uses these trips to visit her aryan brotherhood husband in a norther California prisonwhile instead if doing dog rescue business...interstate fraud is rampant. The storage and warehousing of hundreds of dogs in un air conditioned warehouses through out Louisiana has been photographed And videotaped by volunteers and concerned employees who are concerned for the dogs welfare. We stood mortified as Vans of dogs we're being loaded up and taken to be killed although they claim to be a no kill shelter...they have and will attack anyone who is onto their scheme...I have witnessed and experienced burglaries, trespassings, gun toting felons, aryan brotherhood tagging a and just plain fearful dogs and employees who are intimidated into keeping things quiet or "pay a life altering price" according to Tia Torres for any bad publicity Into their shady enterprise. Do not support this organization in any way. Many of us speak from experience.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Close it down and hand the dogs over to other rescues without a for profit agenda.
