Pit Pulls and Ex-Cons, Rescuing One Another One Day at a Time

The cable show "Pit Bulls and Parolees" continues to amaze. It's like an Outward Bound type of a program, both for ex-cons and pit bulls themselves. Both camps tend to get a bad rap, and Tia and her family (their patriarch is currently serving time) built a new, rehabilitative placement program for the dogs, all the while creating a job opportunity only for the most earnest and hard-working ex-cons she finds.
In that sense, the parolees are "properly placed in a loving home, as well."
The discovery of the show was new until finding this article, and I'm quite impressed with the whole setup. It restores your faith in humanity and I had no idea there are so many loving owners just waiting to take care of a pit bull. No matter how aggressive they are, they, too, are helpless animals and it's up to animal caretakers (rarely do I use the term "owners") to make sure they are treated optimally and not used like a commodity, money-making object, or any other sort of abusive idea.
Animals need love, plain and simple, and parolees, who are only human, need the same kind of love. If a person or animal is just plain willfully aggressive and ornery, well that's a separate matter. But if a spirit truly wants to reform and heal, it's recommended they give Tia a call, or make sure the dog in question finds their way to her.
