The Kern County Planning Commission will hold a hearing on Thurs., Mar. 10, 2011, at 7 p.m. on the request by Tia Maria Torres for a Conditional Use Permit for an animal shelter at Old West Ranch that will house a maximum of 100 dogs.

The location of the kennel, which neighbors say already is functioning, is 17000 Snowshoe Lane, Old West Ranch.

Torres operates under the name Villalobos Rescue. According to its website, Torres specializes in pairing Pit Bulls and parolees in rehabilitation programs. The operation is the subject of a series of Animal Planet shows.

Torres is relocating from Agua Dulce. The website says that Villalobos Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit and asks for donations.

Tell the commissioners to require IDs for admission to the hearing proving the person is a county resident.

Ignorance is bliss. What do expect from ignorant Americans? My own mother being one of them. Like Tia said now all those wonderful parolees will be wandering around Tehachapi with nothing to do... Half the peoples concerns were completely selfish. So much for trying to make this world a better place when you have people like this around. YOU ARE HOLDING US BACK.

Ashley,really,nobody is holding you back.Only you are responsible for the choices that you make.The same is true for those"wonderfull"par olees.They don't need someone to"give them something to do".They can find it on their own just like the rest of us.
It's about choices,not excuses.

The people of this town are all the dumbest scum of the earth. They would rather not have dogs in their town, but are not doing anything about the prison that is in the middle of their town?! They are probably all just mad because a pit bull bit the old men's dicks when they were little stupid children, and are still butthurt about it right before they are about to die.

Yea, they found something to do, but you took it away out of ignorance and fear.

Barbara,those decisions were not made by me.There are others that are paid to look at the bigger picture.I have taken nothing from parolees.I have had friends who were parolees take things from me.As a group,I found them to be pretty resourceful and creative.My opinions were based on experience,and lessons learned,not ignorance.
Please though,if you are truly concerned,go to a pound or rescue and adopt a pit bull,spay or neuter it,and give it a loving home.(Feel free to do the same with a parolee too,if you are so inclined,but the spay/neuter part might get kinda tricky...)
