Pit Bulls and Parolees

In this Oct. 10, 2013, photo, Tia Maria Torres, star of Animal Planet's "Pit Bulls and Parolees," is licked by a pit bull during the filming of an episode of the show's fifth season in New Orleans. Torres, who runs the nation's largest pit bull rescue center and has long paired abused and abandoned dogs with the parolees who care for them, has moved her long-running reality TV series from southern California to New Orleans, where hurricanes and overbreeding have left many pit bulls abandoned or abused.
