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!

Brew City Bully Club is a PHENOMINAL organization. Their drive and passion for education and proper advocacy inspired me to start up my own not for profit business, and donate 80% of my profits to BCBC to support their mission. The remainder goes to more supplies so I can continue to make cool stuff that makes a difference. Brew City Bully Clubs pitbull university is outstanding, and their owner support programs are a godsend to any new pitbull parent. I can't say enough great thing a about them!

I have been involved with this organization for a number of years and I must say that the level of dedication and passion are second to none. We have been to events and even adopted our Simba through BCBC. Michelle, Victoria and Jeremy went well above what I expected in regard to my questions and concerns including setting their personal time aside to help my adjust to the new puppy. I have no doubt that many dogs lives have been saved due to there level of dedication and knowledge and if you are going to support anyone I would highly recommend these wonderful people as they truly make a difference, they certainly did in our lives.

Thank You BCBC!!!!

Having been involved with Michelle and Brew City Bully Club for a number of years has been an educational experience. The passion in which they attempt to educate about the breed is refreshing and very important. I strongly urge anyone unfamiliar with this association to request information about not only the breed but the wonderful people involved with it and together we CAN make a difference. Blessing, Ryan Rischman

I was never into a certain dog breed as I considered them all of equal importance . However when I rescued my 2 pitbulls I realized the stigma that exists from non - educated folks for this dog. The media is the #1 reason people are confused about this dog . Pitbulls are the number one breed to enter shelters and the number one to be put to sleep . Labradors's are the #1 dog for bites in the USA. Having said all this I just want all breeds to be accepted and judged by the deed never the breed. I have found an outlet with similar minded people that want the exact same as me, to be able to own and love my dog as poodle owners and goldens etc.. get to . A place to educate and inform the public about this amazing breed .

I found the Brew City Bully Club when I was browsing for organizations that were working to end dog fighting in the Milwaukee area. I stumbled upon BCBC and just fell in love with the program! I love that they work to educate the public on Pit Bulls while also running an affordable spay and neuter program (PAL Program) and fostering and adopting out dogs. It's a great organization run by a great group of people! I hope to volunteer sometime soon!

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!!!

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.

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

The treatment and training of my dog.

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

Try to branch out to further expand its message.

Brew City Bully Club has done an amazing job of raising awareness, providing support and a multitude of other ressources related to Pit Bull and Bully breed issues in and around Milwaukee, WI. In a VERY short period of time thay have initiated several programs including fostering & adoption which has successfully adopted several pit bull puppies to acceptable homes. They have begun fundraising to help in efforts to pay for dogs to be spayed and neutered, particularly female dogs and their puppies who may have been bred accidentally or because of owners being unaware of the benefits. And closest to my heart, they have shown initiative to determine the best way to approach fighting Breed Specific Legislation and education largely to prevent dog fighting. All in all, this is a GREAT organization of which I am very proud to being a member. I look forward to many events to come. Michelle and Jeremy (the founders) have truly shown wonderful initiative and sincerity in wanting to give pit bulls and bully breeds the best possible reputation through education and awareness.

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

all of its programs that have been started to support their objectives, they are making a presence in Milwaukee by attending every possible event and creating a large network of members.

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

take it slow and not be too forceful for fear people would try to sabotage the cause - but I think Michelle and Jeremy are doing a great job of this.

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

it's fun, meeting new people and talking about our dogs and most of all agreeing on the importance of the cause.

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

friendly and supportive, a network of resources that is priceless.

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

well, for startes it could spay and neuter all pit bulls and bully breeds so unnecessary breeding would not take place. It could also build and support a "safe haven" for all rescued pit bulls, even if they cannot be adopted.

Ways to make it better...

all of my experiences have been great but they can alwasy be improved by increasing the number of members and supporters.

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

Ignorance and misinformed people!

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

I love my pit bull!
