Come join BODY Dance and Fitness as they raise funds for Villalobos Rescue Center ("Pitbulls and Parolees") out of New Orleans.

The rescue center was relocated in 2011 after being pushed out of Southern California by new laws making it impossible for them to remain a non-profit organization.

In New Orleans, 99-percent of the dogs taken in have heartworm, which is curable but costly: $500 per dog. Their yearly vet bill is half a million dollars.

They have a show on Animal Planet called "Pitbulls and Parolees" and the new episodes air on Saturday evenings.

A $10 donation gets you in the door and is requested to be cash-only.

BODY Dance and Fitness is located at 7885 W. Sahara Avenue #109 in Las Vegas.

The event will be held on Nov. 6 from 2-3:30 p.m.
