"Pit Bulls & Parolees continues to strike a chord with a very passionate and proud community of animal advocates around the world that have accepted and supported the ethos of Tia Torres and Villalobos," Rick Holzman, General Manager and Executive Vice President of Animal Planet, said. "By sharing her life on-air, online with her 1.3 million Facebook fans, and every medium in between, Tia brings her selfless journey to life while inspiring millions with her core values."

The popular series, produced by 44 Blue Productions, follows New Orleans-based Tia, her family and her Villalobos crew of parolees and volunteers as they rescue, rehabilitate and find homes for abused and abandoned pit bulls.

On Saturday beginning at 9 a.m./8c, viewers can catch up on the most memorable moments of the current season with never-before-seen footage and get an insider's look behind the scenes with the cast and crew, as well as updates on past adoptions. The Season 6 finale will follow (10/9c), which features Tia's battles with a local shelter over the fate of a scared and aggressive pit bull, a local couple who returns to Villalobos in hopes of finding another furry companion for their family and, after a long recovery, a dog that was rescued from the brink of death who finally has a shot at a forever home in Boston.

Season 7 will launch in fall 2015 with 21 new episodes.
