Villalobos Rescue Center Fundraiser

Every February, we host our first fundraiser of the year! Even better, the last 3 years have kicked off with one of our very favorite rescues, Villalobos Rescue Center. If you aren't familiar with the rescue, you can catch up with the organization on Pit Bulls and Parolees, a show on Animal Planet that highlights not only the rescue program, but the amazing transformation of the Parolees that Tia (founder of VRC) hires as her employees! 

I have loved Pit Bulls for as long as I remember, so it only seemed natural that I was drawn to this rescue and their wonderful show. What I didn't expect was to fall so in love with the stories of the parolees, the guys that Tia hires to run her day to day tasks at the kennel. Guys like Earl (featured here) who went from Parolee with no direction, to one of Tia's right hand men. Earl showed up out of the blue one day and truly won over the hearts of everyone that hears his story! 

If you have never watched the show, I recommend catching up immediately (you can even watch free episodes on Animal Planet's website! 

Be sure to check out our 180+ items featuring pups from Villalobos this month! Our goal is to raise $10,000 to help their rescue program! 

Here are just a few of my favorite items in the fundraiser:
