The show on Animal Planet that features pit bull adoptions is called "Pit Bulls and Parolees," and it airs on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. The show follows pit bull trainer Tia Torres as she rescues ill-treated pit bulls with the help of ex-convicts.
Torres seeks to reverse the public's misconception regarding pit bulls as aggressive, fear-inducing menaces to society. In her facility near New Orleans, she employs ex-convicts on parole to help rehabilitate hundreds of pit bulls that have suffered mistreatment at the hands of previous owners. "Pit Bulls and Parolees" offers dogs and ex-cons the chance at coming together for a second chance at repairing their lives.
