This is a most excellent organization. I have been involved with them for over a year. They make sound decisions about the dogs that they rescue and foster. I have watched them work for good in our community and am thrilled to be part of their volunteer team. I choose to be involved with my time and money because I trust them and the work that they do

The BCBC has grown into an amazing organization - it FAR exceeds anything that I could've hoped for or dreamed of. The level of dedication that our volunteers, supporters and donors display is second to none. I've never collaborated with or seen such passionate, generous, hard working people in all my professional endeavors. This organization is so very young to have accomplished so very much. Yet, as a united group, they realize that the road ahead of them is long and full of difficulty. The Brew City Bully Club operates as a family - and I'm so very proud to be part of it.

Brew City Bully Club is very near and dear to my heart. I grew up in a home with pit bulls and they am a huge advocate of this breed (and all bully breeds, really.) I love this organization because everything they do is for the dogs and educating our Milwaukee community. I wish they had more supporters and a larger reach, because of all the wonderful things they do, but even as small as it is -- this organization is having a HUGE, positive impact in the greater Milwaukee area. BCBC rescues dogs from MADACC, holds educational events about bully breeds in the local community, offers community outreach events with free vaccines and supplies to families that need it most for their fur babies, and many more events. Check out their site to get involved in being part of the solution: www.brewcitybullies.org

I love BCBC!! I have had the opportunity to volenteer with them and adopted a dog from them. The people at BCBC are dedicated, hardworking and caring individuals that truly make a difference in our community.

Brew City Bully Club is a group of wonderful people who live to help people understand how dogs, especially bully breeds, need to be treated as individuals. We advocate for the protection and understanding of all dogs and help people find ways to keep their bully breed dog with education and vetting.

I find this to be a very worthy charity as it addresses a very real and serious issue.So serious in fact I would like to propose a offer for this charity as I would like to donate alot of money to this but I need some help. I sell new Toyotas at Wilde Toyota in West Allis and for anybody that buys or refers someone to me which ends in a sale I will personally donate $100 for every vehicle that goes down the road. We have Black Friday specials going on so not only will I donate but I can also give you the best deal possible. Please feel free to call or text at anytime. Id be more than happy to help answer any questions.Thank you

I was also very discouraged with the decision to post about a dog being euthanized 14 days later. I am relieved to see I am no t the only one feeling quite uneasy about the situation. It really did appear that they purposely waited to make an announcement until after their Color walk. I was already skeptic al about this group and their finances , but this event really sealed the deal for me. I saw Charlie's review before mine, and it was his comment on the announcement that set me at ease for no t being the only one who had a lot of questions. All I saw was hi s original comment, when I checked back later it was gone. I don't know what that was all about but it sure didn't make me feel any better. I would recommend doing some thorough research before choosing what organizations you donate to. because you just can't seem to trust people these days.

I had been following this organization for quite a while on Facebook, but didn't think much of anything until I saw some pictures of a dog under their care that went by the name of Chance. He was severely burned and I assumed he would need a lot of extra medical attention due to the severity of his burns. Each month I save up and try to donate some money to a charitable cause, for the last few months I had chosen this organization. What can I say? As a dog lover and proud pit owner myself the pictures of that dog just stole my heart. I could not comprehend how someone could have purposely committed such evil acts against him so I wanted to do what I could to help him. I was very happy about my choice to support this organization until one day I logged on to Facebook and see a very vague post about Chance being euthanized. I was shocked, but couldn't help but notice that the post said he had officially been put down on August 8th. However, it was posted on August 22nd. As someone who was donating to this dog specifically, I saw quite a few red flags with this time difference and lack of communication with me as a donator. I was very disappointed and double checked my e-mail and previous posts to see if I had missed a previous announcement. Between the 8th and the 22nd I received several e-mails from BCBC: one about buying limited edition tee shirts, another one or two about some sort of event they were holding. I couldn't help but notice that the date of the event was that Friday, August 21st. I commented on the Facebook post announcement curious as to what they had to say about the time difference. I got a response, "We wanted to give our volunteers time to grieve, it was the least we could do for them." However it was apparent to me through the couple hundred comments left previously that volunteers were still having a rough time with this dog being put down. Which is not shocking. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate volunteers and wish I had the time to dedicate my time to being one myself. But I couldn't for the life of me figure out the correlation between volunteers grieving and a post about Chance being euthanized. I took it as a poor excuse to withholding the information until after their big event. I was very upset about the response and stressed how disrespected I felt about the situation. I even high lighted the fact that I won't be donating again and will no longer be pressuring my company to choose this organization as their annual charity donation. The response was, "Thank you for your time. Thank you for your previous support." It felt cold, careless and not very genuine. Just came across as though they had to post some sort of response on their public page. Nobody made a point to reach out or explain any information to me any further. I am still not even exactly sure what it is that happened to Chance, the dog I was helping support due to the minimal amount of details given in the post. It's very discouraging that things seem so secretive. It is blatantly obvious that making money is the highest priority here. When I look back and analyze this situation as a whole I really start to question what the money I donated was actually used for. I have put a lot of thought into it, and I see no valid excuse as to why there couldn't be at least a private email out to the donators. I would have been a bit more understanding of everything if this was the case. I am not just some sort of ATM machine, I am a person who cares about the well being of the dog I chose to support. I will have to admit I was a bit offended to find out this type of information over Facebook, due to the fact it was not combined with any sort of e-mail. It struck me as very unprofessional and I couldn't help but wonder if I did not have a Facebook if I would ever be informed of this information. My overall experience with this organization has been very unsettling. I'm not typically the type of guy to spread negativity, but I could not remain silent on this issue.

When it comes to animals and those who work with them HONESTY and RESPECT are important. I saw little of this at BCBC. I highly recommend talking with people OUTSIDE of the "in group" of the people who work(ed) at BCBC before getting involved or supporting them in any way.

Amazing organization! They educate, advocate, help with training, and rescue. Most of all their passion to make a difference comes through and engages people to listen and to think about their message. I love volunteering for them and look forward to every event and helping being apart of their mission.
