They do so much to help the plight of the most misunderstood breed of dog in the world -- the "pit bull!!" From the huge Pittie Palooza event held in October in Milwaukee to the daily rescues of abandoned &/or mistreated pitbulls -- they do amazing work!

Seeing what a few volunteers could do to get the word out and educate the public on the true facts of the "bully breed" dogs and work against Breed Specific Legislation is both amazing and inspiring!

This organization has done so much amazing work in the Milwaukee community to help not only raise awareness about the extreme problems Milwaukee has with dogfighting, but also directly HELPING the dogs who are victims. They rescue, foster, do community outreach & education, and work with local law enforcement to help rescue and investigate. BCBC also works collaborativly with other local animal & pitbull welfare organizations.

The Great!

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

Recently, there was a high-profile case in which a victim of dog fighting was found at a local park. BCBC worked to finally engage the media in Milwaukee's dogfighting problem and helped coordinate a vigil/rally to raise community awareness and support.

Finding ways to do outreach to the community during Milwaukee's long winter months.

Brew City Bullies is committed to rehabing the publics perception of the American Pit-Bull Terrier. They are consistenctly involved with community activities to bring awerness to their cause. By involving the public to personally have a hands on approach with their mission, they are enhancing the quality and self-efficacy of those individuals who would not have been as personally involved in the treatment of these dogs. This organization has driven 2.5 hours to my house to help me with my dog on several occasions. They are open and honest with what their expectations are of their members and are always in touch when it comes to lending a helping hand.

When you need questions answered or tips on how to best take care of your four legged friend - Michelle and Jeremy are the ones to ask! They helped out me and my little girl tremendously! The classes they provide were also great for us. Not only did we get to bond as parent and puppy, but she gained knowledge, gained courage, and mastered the agility course. Thank you so much Brew City Bully Club for the help that you have provided us, but the help that you provide to the entire breed!

I volunteered, along with my 11 yr old daughter, at one of their events. Everything was run in a very professional manner and it was clear what our task was. They reached many new people who had not come out for one of their events before, and are doing amazing work helping in the community! They also had many repeat participants who are glad the have been a part of their work. Many of these people are dog owners who, with out this group, wouldn't have been able to spay or neuter there dogs. Important stuff!

They helped us stand up against breed specific legislation in our community and now I am partnering with them to bring their great work to our city.

Pay them a salary so they could all focus their efforts more efficiently within their community, which is MUCH needed!

We adopted our first Pit Bull from a local animal shelter four years ago. Our dog was abandoned as a stray, and she has many fear issues with new people and new situations. We quickly learned about the stigma that goes along with this wonderful breed. We also learned about the cruel and inhumane things these dogs are subjected to, including dog fighting. We were saddened by the way these dogs are over-bred for sport and profit. We first met BCBC at a Pit Bull Awareness Day event in October of 2008. We were enthused about the steps they were taking to help Pit Bulls in our community. We joined their bi-weekly dog group, which gave us a chance to get out and socialize our dog around other dogs. The class is designed to help build confidence of both dogs and owners alike with an agility course, one-on-one mentoring and socialization around new people and dogs. This exposure helped us, and our dog slowly overcame some of her fear issues. BCBC is working to curb overpopulation by encouraging residents to spay and neuter their dogs. They are also working to educate people in the community and hosted over two dozen educational booths about responsible ownership last year. BCBC launched the End Dog Fighting campaign in Milwaukee to address the root cause of a number of problems associated with dog fighting by educating the target community youth groups to love and respect their dogs rather than fight them. BCBC is dedicated to changing the negative perceptions and stereotypes around this breed to build positive awareness and save lives.

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

working with other people with a common goal to give these dogs a brighter future.

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

well educated, caring, and hard-working individuals.

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

spay, neuter, and vaccinate more dogs in lower income families to curb overpopulation. Rent additional facilities in the city for training and education.

Working on the national level at The Humane Society of the United States, I rarely see local groups as professional, driven or successful as the Brew City Bully Club. They have clear goals, are well organized, and extremely efficient, resourceful and innovative. They've taken on some difficult subjects and are patient and persistent. They are a pleasure to work with and watch grow.

The Great!

I started working with the BCBC in 2008, when they came to me with interest in taking on The HSUS' End Dogfighting campaign, which reaches out to at-risk youth, offering alternatives to dogfighting. By their own hands, the campaign is now up and running.

I learned about BCBC from my doggy daycare provider almost 2 yrs ago. I had adopted my first dog 4 months before and was looking for additional ways to challenge her and enhance her training. We started going to the dog groups. She loved it! I even emailed Jeremy and Michelle one morning while I was waiting for an oil change, the mgr had let me bring my dog inside. As I sat there inside with my calm and well behaved pitbull, it hit me that all of our hardwork in dog groups was working! I also had in home training to work with specific issues we were having. Jeremy took the time to listen to my concerns and walk my neighborhood with me to see the issues I was having. He taught me how to handle her and helped me learn how to read my dog's body language. To be able to have in home training that is so tailored to your individual needs is fantastic, and BCBC makes it affordable too! From the very first night of class, BCBC has been a group of welcoming and caring people. It's the environment that they have developed. We all love our pitties and we all have the same goal.... to rehabilitate the breed and reduce the fear. No one judges a newcomer whose dog may be having some issues, but that person and dog is immediately welcomed in and given support and help to correct the problem. I don't know where I would be without BCBC, they have been a very important part of the training and confidence building of both me and my dog.

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

The results that I have seen in my dog and myself. We communicate better and I have learned how to read her body language. I have also gained confidence in myself and become a better leader for her.

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

amazing!!!! Jeremy and Michelle are great! They are so welcoming and have a wealth of knowledge to share. Everyone else involved has been very friendly and open to newcomers.

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

Make an even bigger difference than they already have by opening a permanent facility that could house office and training facility.

This non-profit organization is vital to my community. They provide much needed education on pit bull dogs in low income neighborhoods. They educate people on the harmful effects of dog fighting. Most people involved in said activity are violent criminals. They are involved drugs and other various gang related activity. They also educate people on the proper care of a dog. Many people think it is OK to just tie up a dog in their back yard, garage, or basement. This drives dogs mad and makes them frustrated,aggressive and want to attack. They also help provide low cost spay/neuter. This is vital in helping the stop of unwanted dogs who end up in the streets where agencies funded by tax dollars are sent out to catch and house these unwanted animals.

The Great!

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

A better understanding personally of the importance of spaying/neutering and the harmful ripple effect that dogfighting has in our society.
