Founded by Tia Maria Torres, Villalobos Rescue Center is a 501c3 registered charity focusing on rehabilitation and rescue of the American Pit Bull Terrier dog, with help from the parolees who work and care for the dogs. VRC works ceaselessly to give Pit Bulls another chance in life. Each and EVERY dog gets spayed or neutered, and given any medical treatment necessary, before the search for that perfect home begins.

Now located in Louisiana, due to the overwhelming need to help other dogs, VRC has now become an all breed rescue with the main focus still being on Pit Bulls. Now that we are in the South, we have to deal with the heartworm disease. This means that 99% of the dogs we take in, enter our facility with this pre-existing condition. It not only takes three to six months to cure, but costs up to $500 per dog.
