I have watched this show for years and this was on my bucket list. The tour was very short where you get to meet the dogs that are up for adoption, see the wall-of-shame and hear the story of their background. This center is awesome...More

My pit mix loves Pitbulls and Parolees so I wanted to see their location while in NOLA. I went at a random time (Sunday morning) so maybe it would have been a better experience otherwise, but if I had to do it over again, I...More

Have been watching this show for years so I had to see and support the rescue since we were in town. The staff take such loving care of their charges and, while living in a shelter is far from ideal, it’s so much better than...More

Absolutely loved walking the dogs. Would recommend doing this if you love animals and like to volunteer, they let people walk dogs 3 times a day. If I lived in the area I would be volunteering here all the time, the staff that was there...More

People focus too much on the hardships so closely
associated with this well known working class
neighborhood when what’s really most remarkable about
the tightknit community is its indefatigable spirit of
rebirth and ability to stay true to its roots. Perhaps
not an ideal destination for those visitors who tend
to keep well within their comfort zones when traveling
or those with bucket lists filled to the brim with top

I believe the shows are now 'On-Demand' now, with no new episodes.

I agree with the others. It is free to volunteer to walk the dogs and is a good time.
