Tia Maria Torres was brought up in a dysfunctional house and had a very upsetting childhood. In her early years, she started to extend her companionship to local dogs or stray cats.

So it is reasonable to conclude that a human might have innumerable best friends, but Torres will be every dog's best pal. She always feels the cries of all the dogs that are mistreated and deserted and is forever happy to help. 

"Pit Bulls and Parolees," the American TV series, has certainly let you witness how Torres and her family have saved and treated abused and orphaned dogs of all breeds.

Therefore, let's glance at the life of Tia beyond the curtain and discover all of it!

Her Family In A Picture

She was raised by her stepmother, whom she refers to as "mom." The ladies adored nature and strove tirelessly to maintain the family intact. Things appeared to be difficult, both personally and financially. Given these difficulties, her stepmother raised her and looked after a herd of animals. As her stepmother phrased it, "Mother Nature's gifts" kept the family together somehow. She grew up without a father figure in her life. Despite this, she never forgets her mother's admonition that she doesn't need much more in life than the love of an animal buddy. 

If you watch "Pit Bulls and Parolees" daily, you're probably familiar with Tia Torres and her rescue family, including Tia's husband, Aren Marcus Jackson.

She managed to meet her present spouse while she was a member of the vampire frenzy in the early 1980s. She sought to locate a dog owner who would allow her to keep the dog when she hit the "Vampire phase." Interestingly, the owner turned out to be none other than Jackson, who was jailed in California at the time. In 2001, while facing a 14-year sentence for a gunfight with Orange County cops, Tia made pen buddies with Jackson. When Tia first spotted his photograph, she fell back in love with him.

The pair got married on October 31, 2006. However, Jackson was arrested in 2007 for a crime he did not even commit. According to the source-

“In 2007, I believe, AJ was sent back to prison after a tip provided the police with information that one of the parolees had a stolen bike on their property, which, in turn, violated AJ's parole. He was sent back to prison for a period of 15 more years for this latest crime that he did NOT commit.”

The couple has a total of four children. However, the oldest daughter, Tania Torres, was the daughter of her gangbanger boyfriend back in San Fernando Valley. Mariah, the rescued couple's daughter, was born later. At the age of eight, she is a gifted young lady who addressed the Los Angeles City Commission.

Regarding their other two children, the couple has adopted two Hawaiian boys, Kanani and Keli'i, who are actively assisting their mother in dog rescue. Growing up was difficult for the twin brothers. Fortunately, the brothers became friends with Mariah and began to hang out with her regularly. Finally, the couple chose to adopt them as their own children.

Torres is privileged to have such a beautiful family. He is the creator of Villalobos Rescue Center and is the biggest pitbull animal refuge in the United States.
