  • Well I haven't been to Villalobos RC, but I have seen a lot of their rescues. It's quite amazing, because I remember when I was little, I myself wanted to be that one person that could try to help as many dogs I and other possibly could; That being said I have rescued quite a few dogs( all a breed of pit bull). I'm just thankful honestly my dream for that is seen be done right before my eyes. ❤
  • I was so excited to hear they are allowing tours again..it is a small tour of the outside (about 11 dogs) BUT it still was a great tour with being able to see the "Wall of Shame" with all the things that had been used to keep dogs captured. Mr. Wilson's chain was so extremely heavy and even on TV there is nothing as shocking as actually seeing it OR the blue rope that the dog's skin had grown around. It was sickening to see but it also gives a better understanding of how the dogs respond to caring and compassionate people.
