At his Dallas home, Flatt plans to build a 4-foot run, which would be a mix of open and covered space on concrete and grass. There will also be a vet area, indoor play area and pool for dogs.
"What we are looking to do is build the world's first pit bull facility, like an actual state-of-the-art facility for these animals," Flatt said.
Donations helped Flatt purchase the remote area in Paulding County, and he said he will continue to raise funds to build his vision for the sanctuary.
"Every one of them has a story. The stories don't matter. It's the endings that we look to change," Flatt said.
