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.

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

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.

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

They are easy to work with. Very friendly people with hearts of gold. Extremely motivated and resourceful.

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

excited, enthusiastic, and eager to learn.

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

change the world for inner-city youth and their pit bulls!

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?

Likely

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.

fantastic! Hardworking and compassionate.

This organization is phenomenal. I had the pleasure of working with them first hand, from the beginning, as their lead dog trainer and it was the best expereince I've ever had. They really know how to find the root to a problem in order to fix it, rather than putting a "bandaid" on everything. They are so dedicated to their cause and have what it takes to implement every one of their goals. I personally adopted a dog from them, and they were there every step of the way, on top of everything. Very organized and passionate about what they do.

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

working with them one on one and in a group setting. I not only trained and helped rehabilitate many of their foster dogs, but I adopted one myself, and she is the light of my life.

I have worked with the Brew City Bully Club as a resource for deaf dogs. Deafness runs in bully breeds and I have worked closely with this organization to share information, training techniques and support. I am thankful that BCB Club is willing to work with deaf and special needs animals and help advocate for their health and well-being.

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

seeing their commitment in advocating for bully breeds through outreach, education and events.

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

Very knowledgeable about the breed.

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

Be used to help build and create one or more sanctuaries for those dogs that cannot find permanent homes. It could also be used to hire and train behaviorist to deal specifically with bully breeds to assist in adoption.

I can't tell you how impressed I am with the founders of this organization. There are a lot of "support groups" out there, there are dog play dates, there are trainers, there are rescues - I had my pick at organizations to volunteer my time to, and this was the first one that really got me to respond. I had been advocating for dogs in general, especially the misunderstood ones - and to find a group that wanted to do just that, especially for a breed that is HORRIBLY misunderstood, I figured I could at least help with fund raising :) I found people more passionate, and more determined than I ever imagined. They added a "rescue" part to their mission - but they set themselves apart from all the other rescues by TRAINING the pups in the foster homes, so they have a great start to be ambassadors for the breed - I just think it's fantastic. They are going to actually do it this time - they WILL rehabilitate the reputation of this wonderful breed.

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

the adoptive pups they have rescued and trained.

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

Their passion and determination, not to mention friendly, down to earth people.

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

really organized and friendly - they had the answers.

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

Stop back yard breeding, dog fighting, and cruelty to all bully breeds.
