Detroit Bully Corps is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity dedicated to helping and advocating for abused, neglected and homeless dogs through education, adoption, rehabilitation and training. We advocate for Bully Breeds, especially the American Pit Bull Terrier and any strain of the Molosser category of canine. We are located in metro Detroit, Michigan.


From The Editor

The Bully Blog keeps you updated and educated on issues about the “Bully” breeds. Speaking from my personal experience as a pure bred American Pit Bull people discriminate against you even when you come from abuse. My daddy used to say “If you have nothing nice to say about a breed keep it to yourself until you have the facts.” These breeds deserve the same love and affection that other breeds get. I’m just one dog trying to do his part in educating the world on how these bully breeds get a bum rap. Help end the discrimination and join us in supporting Detroit Bully Corps. Also, don’t forget to sign up for our monthly newsletter edited by yours truly. Loyal to the breed.


MDARD Certification as a Private Shelter

Great news! On January 26 we passed our inspection with the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development (MDARD) and are officially designated as a certified Michigan animal shelter. We thank everyone who volunteered and donated to help us achieve this goal! The MDARD inspector really likes our triage/quarantine room and would like to see our entire shelter upgraded to that standard. The money to create that room came from a Petfinder Foundation grant, but wasn't enough to upgrade every room. To achieve this goal, we need to purchase more flooring material, FRP (fiberglass-reinforced plastic) to cover the walls, and epoxy paint. To help us make these upgrades, please consider making a donation today.
