Welcome to Wolfcentric - Scroll down for updates and DOGS!

I work with dogs and hang out with dogs all day. Most dogs on here are currently being housed at BARC(Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition), where I have been working since 9/11. BARC is a privately owned no-kill animal shelter located in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, NY. The facility can comfortably house a maximum of 25 dogs w/ individual runs. Most dogs we get, are either strays from the street, owner surrendered due to financial/personal difficulties and some, due to the new NY housing/landlord lease policies. We also rescue dogs from city pounds and kill shelters.


** Checkout this teaser trailer for my long overdue documentary about some BARC dogs. I have filmed over 200++ dogs as they come through BARC and find new homes, over the course of 6 years. Its quite difficult to put all this dogs life in one 46 minute documentary, but it will eventually happen.

Check out my dog ORBIT doing back-to-back tricks. I rescued him from the ACC in Harlem in may of 2001, when he was about 8 months old. I have a series of pictures of him doing his deed to about 30 different landmark attractions around the US when my band took him on a 2 month tour of America. He has some amazing shots of pooping on the lawn across from where JFK got shot, him peeing on the gates of Graceland, him locked up inside the kennel of Disneyworld and riding the tram. I'm going to scan them and post it soon.

+ New pitbull rescue show on Animal Planet

Animal Planet premiered last friday the 1st of a 6-part documentary called Pit bull and Parolees. It chronicles the Villalobos Rescue Center out of Los Angeles, which is considered the largest pit bull rescue group in the US, and is ran by parolees and ex-convicts. It was started 15 years ago by Tia Maria Torres, and her 4 kids. She started the parolee/ex-convict hiring program a couple years ago after meeting her 2nd husband, a former tattoo artist and one of her prison penpals. The show focuses on the ex-convicts and the pits they rescue and their reactions and interactions with the abusers and others, that uses the breed for harmful means. Its pretty much like Rescue Ink except its all about the pit bulls.
The episodes air every friday, at 10 pm on Animal Planet.

heres a trailer for it:
