Brew City Bully Club is far more than just a non-profit organization. it's a loving community. Not only do they go the extra ten miles for every dog they take under their wing but they put that same passion and energy into education and POSITIVE pit bull advocacy. i could write a novel on how amazing this group is and how proud i am to be apart of it. i love my BCBC family!!

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.

Brew City Bully Club is different from many other bully breed rescues in that they don't just stop at rescuing, fostering, and adopting. They go above and beyond by educating the public and mass media on the plight of the bullies and how we can better serve and appreciate them. I'm also a big supporter of their involvement with children, taking breed ambassadors into schools, teaching children not to judge a book by it's cover and also teaching them the importance of proper treatment and respect for animals. Way to go, BBC!!! Thank you from a bully lover, for all you do.

BCBC is a group of passionate people who are devoted to spreading the understanding and awareness of a misunderstood group of dogs, the pit bull. Without BCBC many of the dogs would meet an unfair end but since the people at BCBC work so hard for the cause, they have saved many wonderful dog lives and given joy to the people that grow to love those dogs.

I work with another non-profit dog group (GPA-WI). We are frequently at the same events as Brew City Bully Club. I have to say how fun and interactive this group is at these events. They get a lot of people stopping by. I do believe they are changing many people's minds in a positive way about the breed! My breed is a pretty easy because they don't have the negative stigma. I really give credit to all the individuals who give thier time to a more misunderstood breed! Their facebook website is also extremely well maintainted and entertaining.

They do great work for a misunderstood breed. Don't miss their Rescue Ride. Other events quite fun also and for a great cause. Check them out and very easy to set up a monthly donation.

I currently have 2 pit bulls who are both rescues. One was 5 weeks old and already being taught to fight (Stoli). The other was almost 5 and had lived a very undesirable life. He had "one kill" under his belt (as it was put to me) and spent time in drug houses and even lived in a van (Joker). Both of these dogs are now enjoying the good life. They have 3+ acres to run and play with each other and our other dog who is a chocolate lab. Joker is probably the most gentle soul you would meet - he is a lover and I can't imagine him hurting anything. Both are great with kids. This organization is striving to do great things, and hopefully educate a wide variety of people - from the kids who may live in an area where they have met a Joker who has killed or even a Stoli who is a fighter in training, to the people who are "afraid" of pitbulls but have never met one. Thank you!!!

Role: General Member of the Public

This breed oriented nonprofit does more for it's chosen breed than any group I have ever met. They cover it all from going out of state to help rescue to local school education. They fully support all the Pittbull owners. And the one thing that I think is most important: they regularly combat the general public opinion of Pittbulls. They take the dogs out into the public streets, the schools & special programs for the public to discover how nice these dogs really are. This is called: CHANGING MINDS.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to get them more volunteers and more money to carry on with.

My special field is therapy dogs. I helped get the BCBC going with therapy dogs of their breed and they now have many. This is a very good way to show off the natural temprament of any breed, but it is a great way to combat the public opinion of this breed. Also, I have 52yrs. in dog training and I have never seen any dog club put forth more effort to get their breed trained and into the public eye. I know and they know that Pit Bulls are wonderful dogs. The BCBC is the best at proving that.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Public events and schools where others come into contact with their dogs.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

NOTHING! Their dedication is unblieveable.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of advisors?

I met the people of the BCBC because I am a tester for Therapy Dogs. They wanted to get some of their dogs into this wonderful work. I know a lot about dogs due to my 50years of experience, but I still got an education about Pit Bulls from Jeremy, Michelle & Danielle. When I observed them with their dogs working with the children for the R.E.A.D. program, I got to see some of the best dog handling I have ever seen.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the area of Therapy Dog visits. I have seen these people talk innercity teenagers into the proper way to handle and live with a Pit Bull.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get them more help to be tutored by Jeremy & Michelle inorder to expand their operation.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I have a chance to further my knowledge about a great breed of dog from people who are very goal oriented.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

ordinary people that acted in a very professional manner.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand the great work these hardworking people are doing now with very little money.

Ways to make it better...

all of us had more time to devote to the Pit Bull cause.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Breed prejudice, lack of staff and lack of time.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I enjoy all the time I get to spend with these people and their beautiful dogs.

Review from Guidestar
Rating: 5 stars  

Brew City Bully Club is a great organization with high expectations to educate people about America's dog, the pit bull. I have had the privilege to have had two beautiful ,loyal pits, Diamond and Tank. Diamond went to the bridge a month before her 15th birthday. My Tankie is still here giving big doggie kisses., I got my pits as puppies but thanks to the BCBC I would love to get a rescue in the future. It is my pleasure to make donations to such a worthwhile organization!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None. They do an outstanding job!

I have been involved with the Brew City Bully Club for around 3 years. Our mission is to rehabilitate the reputation of "pit bull" type dogs, educate the general public and make the local communities safer. The people who coordinate and run this organization are dedicated, passionate, and loving people.

There are several different ways that the BCBC helps fulfill it's mission. The outreach program goes to public events to help convey clear information about these dogs to the public. The goal here is to raise awareness about these dogs and help the communities better understand their special qualities.

The BCBC also provides owner support. There are several volunteers with lots of dog training experience that are available to answer specific questions or help your training needs. One program offered for the public is owner support groups. These are one hour sessions that help you form a strong bond with your dog through training and confidence building. If you prefer something more private, BCBC does private training also!

There are many other programs that the Brew City Club offers, most of which are offered to the public at little or no cost. I have been involved both as a volunteer and a recipient of their services and my experiences have been fantastic.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
