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 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.

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.

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.

Rating: 5 stars  

Everyone is very,very nice! They are always out in the community informing and assisting people of all ages. Local places run fundraisers for them, it's a great time. Seeing them out in the community doing walks, having booths at all the local fairs and shows is awesome!! Keep up the good work. I hope to one day rescue a pup from them. Once I get a house of course.

This rescue educates,helps current pit owners, and helps create new pit bull lovers everyday! They help circulate profiles of pitbulls in need of homes at the humane society they cant reach out to physically. They help pits get a good name in this community. Proud to be a supporter and hope to help this rescue in the future by fostering with them when I return from my Army commitment.

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

Become a bigger participater by helping them foster.

They do great work for great dogs who are in need. They help save lives! They give dogs most people look past a voice, and furever homes through their adoption programs. The world needs more Pit Bull advocates like Brew City Bully Club!

I have a sweet bully girl who escaped from being a 'bait dog' and came to live with me....

'We' have searched out Bully Breed organization nationally and can honestly say this is 'one of the very, very, very best'!

The knowledge that they give to children and adults alike has made the breed move (finally) in a forward direction. They do ALL the right things!

This nation needs to get back to when Pit Bulls were THE hero dog of WW1 and owned by families as 'nanny' dogs for the children, not the negative unreal picture people have of this breed now.

Brew City Bully Club is 10 stars, not five!!!

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

Give them grants so they could expand...or find a company that knows how to spend their money wisely and with heart!

I think many pitbulls need a second chance. We have a family member who volunteers there and the amazing stories we hear of recovery and adoption are wonderful. Michele is super at public appearances to make people aware of the breed and how many dogs get the bad rap for their owners bad behavior. If each dog could speak for itself we would understand but BCBC is their voice. This is a great organization! But they are in need of financial help to keep moving forward.

A very good friend of mine told me about this amazing organization that she was a part of that focuses around Pit Bulls and Bully Breeds. At first I didn't think much of it and I helped out and donated when I could. But then learning even more about the BCBC and attending some of their charity events I really realized what great things they were doing! I realized so much that I am now a proud pit bull owner!!
