Volunteering Oportunities

Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animal Training, Animals

Mission: The foundation of our program is education. Without education on spay/neuter, breed specific legislation (BSL), training, breed specific workshops, the dog fighting culture and responsible ownership, the epidemic will never end. Rescue is a mere bandage in the overall scale of the canine epidemic. Shelters are overrun, rescues are overflowing and society is in need of education. For every one spot we fill in our program, we turn away 50. We average 20-25 canines at any given time and 90% of our rescue population is comprised of the American Pit Bull Terrier. We work with canines from any and every background, whether it be a surrendered family pet, bait dog, seasoned fighter or the abused. We are a no-kill rescue/rehabilitation in that we will never euthanize for space. We, as a moral, ethical and objective organization, will NOT adopt out a canine that is a threat to society. We are advocates of the American Pit Bull Terrier, as such we will not add to the epidemic by being irresponsible.

Results: Detroit Bully Corps is proud to serve bully breeds everywhere by being advocates for these misunderstood canines. Whether through outreach, training, education, rescue, or rehabilitation, we have helped hundreds, if not thousands of dogs since our inception in 2013.

Target demographics: dogs without any resources.

Direct beneficiaries per year: hundreds of dogs and dog owners.

Geographic areas served: the metro Detroit area and throughout Michigan to rescue and rehabilitate bully breeds, like the American Pit Bull Terrier, Boxer, American Bulldog, Mastiff, Rottweiler.

Programs: training, rehabilitation, outreach, education.

I've learned so much from the co-founders of Detroit Bully Corps, Bill and Missi Belottie. I've learned a great deal about dogs from them. Even though I've had canine family members for years now, there was a lot I didn't know!
The dogs of DBC are so well cared for. So much hard work and sacrifice occurs daily to give them better lives than they had before coming to DBC. It has been privilege to be involved with this organization - people and canines!

Detroit Bully Corps is all about the dogs. I have learned so much from DBC co-founders Bill and Missi Bellottie about being an advocate for bully breeds and a more responsible dog owner. I cherish the friendships I have made with the other volunteers and our rescue partners who all share a passion and love for dogs. Together we have helped so many dogs that otherwise had no resources. I am excited to see what we can do next! I am proud to be a member of the DBC team.
