20 Nov Brew City Bully Club: Non-Profit Highlight of the Month
What follows is the story of Bubbles, which Brew City Bully Club rescued and fostered for nearly a year.
Bubbles’ story is one of triumph, strength, and resilience. To know this dog is to love her. She worms her way into your heart like many dogs do, but in her own special way. Her story doesn’t start out glamorous. She wasn’t special back then nor was she loved in the slightest. The police found her living with multiple dogs with open wounds, crates filled with feces and urine, a bloody leash nearby with blood splatter on the walls. Thankfully this precious soul was rescued, and her abuser is now a class 3 felon with a 45-month prison sentence. Chapter closed.
While it’s easy for us to dwell on her horrid past, she has never wasted a moment thinking about it. It hasn’t broken her smile or spirit – she has kept moving forward in the most bubbly way possible, with a wiggle butt that doesn’t stop and an infectious smile. Bubbles had some medical issues along with anxiety issues when she came to them, but even after all she’d been through and all she was going through, this dog NEVER stopping smiling, not even once. Brew City helped her through everything she needed them for, and she stayed with them for almost a year until she finally found what she had been looking for all along, her perfect forever family. We can all learn a lesson from this truly special dog. No matter what life throws your way, don’t ever let anything or anyone take away what makes you special.
We have all probably heard a negative story about a pit bull. We are here to tell a different story. We love our pitties and we think they are misrepresented by the stories out there. We welcome them into our clinic and hope that more and more people will welcome them in their lives. Like any other dog, they are all individuals and should not be assumed to be anything else but that.
This month we are proud to highlight the work that Brew City Bully Club does, day in and day out, to provide education and awareness surrounding dogs perceived as pit bulls and also offer support to owners through vaccines clinics as well as their spay and neuter program, among other things.
Formed in 2008, the Brew City Bully Club is a leader in southeast Wisconsin in the advocacy and support of pit bull-type dogs and their families. They fulfill their mission through the three pillars of Advocacy, Owner Support, and Rescue. They provide high-quality programs aimed at alleviating the suffering of Milwaukee-area pit bull-type dogs, encouraging and facilitating responsible, loving dog ownership, and raising awareness for the positive potential of pit bulls as cherished pets in our communities.
Through it’s 10+ years in existence Brew City Bully Club has been able to do a lot of great things:
– 303 Advocacy & Education Outings
– 1,074 Local Owners Supported
– 236 Dogs Microchipped
– 640 Rabies & Distemper Shots
– 576 Low cost Spays & Neuters

The Pups for Life program is the name of the Spay & Neuter program and vaccine clinics and this year specifically they were able to help 23 dogs get spayed / neutered and helped a total of 124 dogs through the vaccine clinics.
