GREEN ACRES BOXER RESCUE OF WISCONSIN INC
September 13, 2011

We have adopted two boxers from Green Acres Boxer Rescue of Wisconsin. They have a dedicated number of volunteers who run a very responsible and professional rescue. Their services range from adoption, surrender, education, and on and on. Green Acres Boxer Rescue has a thorough application process to ensure dogs go to a good "forever" home and that the adopter finds a dog that will be a good fit for him/her/the family.

The rescue consists of a number of foster homes across the state of Wisconsin. So, no matter where you are in the state you are they should have someone not too far from you. The other benefit of the dogs being in foster care are that the dogs get to live with a family while they wait for a home. Not only is that good for the dogs, but the people adopting as well. The dogs tend to be better behaved and you really know what they will be like in a home setting.

To wrap it up I have been very pleased with the three times we worked with them to find a dog (two times we adopted boxers, and the other time we wound up adopting a pit bull. At the time there were no boxers in the rescue that fit what our family needed. They were responsible enough to be honest and tell us that versus encouraging us to adopt a dog t hat wouldn't be a good match...which is why we looked elsewhere and wound up with a pit bull). I fully anticipate to return to Green Acres Boxer Rescue in the future, have recommended them to several friends and family members, and will continue to do so!

Brew City Bully Club
September 13, 2011

I have referenced the Brew City Bully Club when we were searching for another dog. We were considering adopting a pit bull, but were uncertain. We found all the information we needed to make a decision on their website. Ultimately we decided to adopt a pit bull. I feel blessed to have come across such an informative website and incredible breed. Since adopting our pit bull, we frequent Brew City's Bully Club website for ideas of how we can better educate community members regarding the breed. We have also referred others to the organizations on several occasions. All those individuals have reported that the organization was able to answer all their questions/solve their problems. Finally, I have "friended" Brew City Bully Club on facebook. The organization is very active on their page and encourages involvement of the general public and facebook "friends". Very pleased with this organization!
