Heart to Heart Love with Villalobos
Karen Davison once said, "Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever." Villalobos is a rescue center with a goal to save all pit bulls until there is no more. Villalobos is located in New Orleans and originally created in Los Angeles. This rescue center is home to more than 100 dogs and can reach up to 300 at points. The non-profit organization also gives the opportunity of jobs for parolees. Villalobos Rescue Center is a non-profit pit bull rescue that you should raise awareness and money for, because they rescue dogs for shelter and rehabilitation, provide jobs and volunteer hours for parolees, and they provide many adoptable dogs for loving families.

Greenwood stated "As anyone who's watched Pit Bulls and Parolees knows, Villalobos is a place where both people and animals with rough starts can get their second chances" (Greenwood). Villalobos offers second chances to pit bulls and parolees. They exceed limits and maintain a clean environment for the dogs. They go through lots of food, cleaning of the kennels and daily maintenance. Many volunteers come to help with all the work at Villalobos, but it still is not enough. The article "Tia Maria Torres" stated "Here the pit bulls and their parolee handlers get a second chance. For some, it's the last chance. In a city where nearly 70 percent of shelter dogs are pit bulls, lucky ones like Moose are rescued and retrained by Torres and now appear in music videos with the likes of J-Lo"(Horton). This shows that when a pit bull gets that chance to be rehabilitated, they could have a great life. They could be loved instead of abused with your help. At Villalobos, it is stated "Each and EVERY dog taken in, gets spayed or neutered, and given any medical treatment necessary. We work patiently to re-acclimatize fearful dogs to the loving care of a human, so that they may eventually be adopted"(About Us). Donating money will help Villalobos with the costs of the medical bills and treatment for the pit bulls. Once they are treated, they will live a happier life and may even make someone like you happy. Within the streets of New Orleans, dogs could be fighters, as stated, "The rehabilitation of even one fighting dog is a long and uncertain project. First comes the medical care...mental condition"(Ball 1). Raising awareness will show that there is hope to help these dogs and to stop the abuse and fights between this breed. Pitbulls are loving dogs and Villalobos is moving forward to change
