Since Tia and her crew have all moved to New Orleans with a very small second location in New Mexico for the old dogs and the unadoptable dogs that have too many issues, people have been dumping dogs at the new kennel like mad.
It is very sad because most of the abandoned dogs that are arriving at our front door are heartworm positive. That requires a lot more money to treat these dogs.
Within a period of 30 days, 40 dogs were dumped. We cannot place dogs that fast and it takes a lot of resources to be able to house and care for this many dogs.
Since we have moved to New Orleans, it takes more people to clean the kennels due to the switch from pea gravel to concrete. It now takes fifteen people at our kennel to clean the kennels properly. Not only is it expensive to have this many people helping, but it’s also time consuming.
Tia is currently filming Season 4 and it will be airing in Fall, 2012, probably late October like last year. Our new kennel is now open to the public during regular business hours without an appointment from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Closed Sundays and Mondays. The address and other information are on our website http://vrcpitbull.com.
