[via press release from Animal Planet]

TIA TORRES AND NEW ORLEANS' VILLALOBOS RESCUE CENTER RETURNS TO ANIMAL PLANET NOVEMBER 12 at 9PM ET/PT FOR A NEW SEASON OF PIT BULLS & PAROLEES

(New York, NY) For more than 20 years, Tia Torres has dedicated her life to running Villalobos Rescue Center, the largest pit bull rescue center in the U.S. Torres offers a fresh start to more than 50 parolees who work for her as staffers and volunteers; together they attempt to give each pit bull at Villalobos Rescue Center a new lease on life to dogs which 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, the bond between Tia and her family is closer than ever. PIT BULLS & PAROLEES returns for an all new season on Saturday, Nov. 12 at 9 PM ET/PT.

In the season premiere, Tia suffers a devastating injury that requires her children to step up to keep Villalobos running, and her family's strength is tested in a way it's never been before. For the first time, Tia's kids are forced to manage the parolees, rescues and adoptions on their own.

Throughout the season, the rescues featured are more crucial than ever. Viewers will see first-hand the terrible devastation of the Louisiana floods and how Tia and her family go through incredible lengths to provide relief and assistance with the overall goal of reuniting families and their pets. Audiences will learn more about the parolees and follow their journey as they develop relationships with Tia, her family and the dogs of Villalobos. 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.
