This is a most excellent organization. I have been involved with them for over a year. They make sound decisions about the dogs that they rescue and foster. I have watched them work for good in our community and am thrilled to be part of their volunteer team. I choose to be involved with my time and money because I trust them and the work that they do

Brew City has an amazing core group of individuals that are dedicated to not only helping dogs in need, but educating the community on the breed and being the voice to end dogfighting in Milwaukee. Pitbulls have a bad rap and it is always an uphill battle to get people to understand the true nature of this breed and what wonderful pets they truly are. With the outreach programs, the educational seminars, the awareness through community events , and with the diligence and commitment of the volunteers, Brew City Bully Club is achieving their main objective, Saving lives and Changing Minds. I have never seen such a strong group of people working hard to achieve their goals. They truly are amazing. I am proud to be a part of this organization by donating time and money to help them accomplish their mission.

The only reason I'm giving him one star because you can't post a review without one.
Back when I needed their help they didn't call back. They avoided all contact. no help whatsoever. I think they're a scam.....

I first learned about Brew City Bully Club when I got my first "bully breed" puppy about 3 years ago. I attended their annual meeting that year and never looked back after listening to Michelle speak. I started volunteering and try to help out as much as I can. This organization does amazing things for pit bull type dogs, dogs in general, and our city! They are educating children and our communities, providing low cost vet clinics, advocating for dogs that don't have a voice, and doing rescue on top of it! No matter how busy everyone is, they always have time for questions and are a great support system. What they have been able to do in less than 10 years is so admirable! Love my Brew City family!!!

I have been volunteering at BCBC for many years. BCBC is full of fun, caring and motivated people. They put on many great events to not only raise money so they can continue programs that help people and their dogs (spay and neuters, shots, etc.), but to also educate people on pit bulls. I especially like that they go into schools to teach children how to treat animals and not to be afraid of pit bull type dogs. I am very thankful for this group and the advocacy they do for these GREAT dogs!

I got involved with Brew City Bully Club after my town was considering passing Breed Specific Legislation. Without them I wouldn't have even known this was going on and how it would ultimately effect me because I already owned a pitbull type dog. I went to the meetings to show support and learn more. Luckily, the BSL laws weren't passed but I wanted to educate myself more about the topic and about pitbull type dogs in general. Michelle has a heart of gold and is excellent at explaining the facts. She truly cares not only about these dogs but our community and educating future generations. From there I started volunteering with the resue dogs at Brew City. We then fostered one of the dogs and ended up making him a permanent family member. We love both of our pitbulls and love helping change peoples minds about the breed! Thank you Brew City for all you do!

In the very early days of BCBC ,they came to our home to evaluate,educate, and help with training tips and advice first pitty pup Petey. We eventually rescued a second pitty Phoenix from a bad situation. A few months later I was out of work. On a limited income we couldn't afford normal vet costs to have her spayed. BCBC had a low cost spay/neuter program which was a blessing!

I first got involved with the Brew City Bully Club a few years back. I have been to most of their events, and stopped by most of their booths ever since. I then became a volunteer. I just had to work with these wonderful people, who are doing so much good! The dedication of this group is amazing. They are very compassionate to those who are in need of help, whether it training tips, resources such as vet care, food, etc. If they don't have the answer, they will find out for you and steer you in the right direction. With the reputation that pit bull type dogs have had, this group works tirelessly to educate people about the "breed". They are trying to end dogfighting by starting right at the source, educating today's youth about how wonderful and loving pit bulls are, as well as how to care for a dog in their home. They are helping people who aren't able to pay a vet for vaccinations for their dogs, by having low cost Pet Health Clinics. They offer spay and neuter resources, so there are less pit bulls entering the shelters every day. They also do rescue! How cool is that? This group is exactly what pt bulls need. They actually help the community, while also doing rescue. I will support them and volunteer until the end of my days... LOVE the BCBC!!!

The Brew City Bully Club is a great organization that helps the Milwaukee area with education and advocacy for bully breed dogs. They are involved in many different programs and work very hard with local organization such as MADACC and local law enforcement agencies.

The owner of the BCBC is extremely dedicated to this cause and if you choose to get involved and volunteer some of your time, you will surely be inspired by how dedicated this group is to what they believe in.

Though there are some that have had negative experiences with this group, this is a small non-profit that is run mostly by volunteers. In addition, they take a very firm view on the beliefs the organization stands for. Criticism is inevitable in this arena, but make no mistake that this organization is dedicated to its causes and works very hard with the resources it has. It's been a blessing to be associated with this group.

I have been involved with the Brew City Bully Club for around 3 years. Our mission is to rehabilitate the reputation of "pit bull" type dogs, educate the general public and make the local communities safer. The people who coordinate and run this organization are dedicated, passionate, and loving people.

There are several different ways that the BCBC helps fulfill it's mission. The outreach program goes to public events to help convey clear information about these dogs to the public. The goal here is to raise awareness about these dogs and help the communities better understand their special qualities.

The BCBC also provides owner support. There are several volunteers with lots of dog training experience that are available to answer specific questions or help your training needs. One program offered for the public is owner support groups. These are one hour sessions that help you form a strong bond with your dog through training and confidence building. If you prefer something more private, BCBC does private training also!

There are many other programs that the Brew City Club offers, most of which are offered to the public at little or no cost. I have been involved both as a volunteer and a recipient of their services and my experiences have been fantastic.

The BCBC has grown into an amazing organization - it FAR exceeds anything that I could've hoped for or dreamed of. The level of dedication that our volunteers, supporters and donors display is second to none. I've never collaborated with or seen such passionate, generous, hard working people in all my professional endeavors. This organization is so very young to have accomplished so very much. Yet, as a united group, they realize that the road ahead of them is long and full of difficulty. The Brew City Bully Club operates as a family - and I'm so very proud to be part of it.

Brew City Bully Club is very near and dear to my heart. I grew up in a home with pit bulls and they am a huge advocate of this breed (and all bully breeds, really.) I love this organization because everything they do is for the dogs and educating our Milwaukee community. I wish they had more supporters and a larger reach, because of all the wonderful things they do, but even as small as it is -- this organization is having a HUGE, positive impact in the greater Milwaukee area. BCBC rescues dogs from MADACC, holds educational events about bully breeds in the local community, offers community outreach events with free vaccines and supplies to families that need it most for their fur babies, and many more events. Check out their site to get involved in being part of the solution: www.brewcitybullies.org

When it comes to animals and those who work with them HONESTY and RESPECT are important. I saw little of this at BCBC. I highly recommend talking with people OUTSIDE of the "in group" of the people who work(ed) at BCBC before getting involved or supporting them in any way.

Brew City Bully Club is different from many other bully breed rescues in that they don't just stop at rescuing, fostering, and adopting. They go above and beyond by educating the public and mass media on the plight of the bullies and how we can better serve and appreciate them. I'm also a big supporter of their involvement with children, taking breed ambassadors into schools, teaching children not to judge a book by it's cover and also teaching them the importance of proper treatment and respect for animals. Way to go, BBC!!! Thank you from a bully lover, for all you do.

BCBC is a group of passionate people who are devoted to spreading the understanding and awareness of a misunderstood group of dogs, the pit bull. Without BCBC many of the dogs would meet an unfair end but since the people at BCBC work so hard for the cause, they have saved many wonderful dog lives and given joy to the people that grow to love those dogs.

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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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!

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!

Through the help of BCBC, I started my journey of being a brand new pit bull owner out on the right foot. I visited them through a couple of their organized events, but my favorite and far most informative was Pit Bull University which was a wonderful class and I dragged my boyfriend along who needed to learn a lot about pit bulls and the stigma that surrounds them. He is now an advocate for my pittie :)

The Brew City Bully Club is a great asset to our community. They are willing, able, and work hard to educate everyone on pit bulls. It is not in an "in your face" or "everyone should adopt a pit bull" type of way either. They work to educate people on the importance of spaying and neutering your pets, they work to stop dogfighting in our area, they visit schools, they have community events such as the Meet My Bully walks held throughout the summer, and they are overall just genuinely caring people. I felt strongly enough about this organization that I recently started volunteering with them as well.

This organization is a life saver for these dogs! Volunteering with them has given me such knowledge and the tools to help educate the community about pitbulls. Working with these dogs has been a life changing experience for me, the amount of love they have given to me gives me that much more motivation to go out and change the world for them.

Wonderful, wonderful organization. It is run by some of the kindest people I have ever met and is made up of some of the warmest volunteers and supporters. Beyond that they're giving wonderful animals a second chance to find a foster/forever home, AND to educate the community and turn new people into lovers of pitbulls. I am so so happy to have found this organization and to be a volunteer, it is helping me discover what I want to do with my life.

Brew City Bully Club is a huge asset to the Metro-Milwaukee community. The organization isn't asking you to go out an adopt a pitbull type dog because that isn't for everyone. BCBC is working to educate the community, reduce fear and control the population. In the process of carrying out its vision, BCBC is helping reduce dog fighting and crime. You may not love pitbulls like I do, but you can help reduce the amount pitbulls and uneducated owners in your neighborhood by donating to this organization. Unfortunately, these poor dogs over over bred, often misused and misunderstood. I received services from BCBC so that I could be a better pet owner and help reduce the population of pitbull type dogs. Keep up the great work BCBC!!

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.
