Do you believe in Karma?
Since Villalobos Rescue Center arrived in New Orleans, Tia and her team have become familiar with the homeless community, who turn to the rescue for their dogs needs.
One homeless man named Rick relied on the VRC’s generosity before. One day, his pit bull, Karma, fell into a local river, and Rick jumped in after her. Karma came out unscathed, Rick ended up with a bad staph infection that forced him into a hospital for treatment, according to VRC. That forced Rick to do the unthinkable and leave Karma with Tia at VRC.
Tia didn’t get Rick’s last name or the name of the hospital he’d be staying at. Who knows if Rick would ever return? Regardless, Tia made Karma feel at home, as did the VRC supporters that sent in plenty of pink collars and other goodies for the pit bull.
Fortunately for everyone involved, Rick returned to VRC about two weeks later. Needless to say, Karma couldn't look any happier. Have some tissues handy and take a look at the pictures on the VRC Facebook page.
UPDATE: Things are looking up for Rick and Karma! VRC announced that Rick is working for the rescue and has found temporary housing! To learn more and help the two, visit the VRC Facebook for more information.
More amazing rescues await when Pit Bulls and Parolees returns for its sixth season Saturday at 10/9c! Believe us, you’ll want to have some tissues handy for the season premiere!
