Famous Last Words:
On her Facebook page, Rita Ross (aka Rita Woodward) of Corpus Christi, Texas, wrote: “I have been dragging strays home ever since I was about 5 years if [sic] age. (thats the term my dad used) I have found the animals appreciate a helping hand a lot more than people. I am sticking to animals with dogs being my heart, especially APBT.”
Ross (shown above with one of her beloved American pit bull terriers) was involved in numerous dog rescue organizations and not only owned several dogs (including pit bulls) of her own, but fostered dogs (including pit bulls) for a dog rescue called For the Love of Strays.
On Monday, December 15, 2014, Ross was discovered dead at her home after being attacked by her pit bulls. (Apparently, they didn’t particularly “appreciate” her “helping hand.”) At the time of her death, she had 17 dogs in her house, some of which were in cages. The person who found the body said there was “blood all over the house.”

That's not an animal rescuer, that's a hoarder.
I am surprised that those organizations would allow her to keep so many dogs. I know they are desperate for help, but many places have a law about how many animals you can have. When we adopted our cat, they asked us how many animals we had, and our vet had a similar questionnaire as well.
Her house must have stunk something fierce even before she was dead.
