The Founder of Bully Pride of Arizona, Monique, began her involvement working with shelter dogs at the Arizona Animal Welfare League in 2005. Her special interest was working in the kennels with the behaviorally challenged "misunderstood" bully breeds. After four years of volunteering at the shelter, Monique began volunteering with various rescue groups throughout Maricopa County. In 2012, Monique became the Co-Founder and Executive Director of a Bully Breed Rescue in Phoenix. Realizing the need to offer support and education to the community, in January of 2015, Monique resigned from that group and became the Founder of Bully Pride of Arizona. Her goal now is not only to directly help dogs, but to help the community and provide resources, support and education, which in turn will help others that also have a passion to help the voiceless.
Providing the community with bully breed education, shelter system information, offering training tips, trainer referrals and foster dog training classes. Offering information regarding bully breed housing, insurance, resources and offering courtesy posts to promote adoptions. Advocating against the inhumane activity of dogfighting, chaining and the unethical practice of backyard breeding. Striving to help bully breeds obtain a positive image through education despite the image that the general public has of them due to misinformation and media sensationalism. Promoting rescue, adoption, spaying/neutering and responsible bully ownership.
