Director, Web Site Manager
Bridgette has always had compassion for animals big or small. Growing up with many pets around the house was the norm in her family. When she became a first time bully owner herself, she began to experience the bad rap that the breed gets. Wanting to help advocate for this breed she began volunteering at FBR. Walking dogs and spending time to make a difference in their lives. With a BA in Graphic Design and Marketing, she felt that her skills and talents could benefit FBR by helping the dogs get more exposure. After developing the new website and other innovative ways to communicate to the public, she was invited to join the board.
Fundraiser & Events Coordinator
Becky has had a passion for all animals since her childhood and has rescued and homed many dogs. Becky has owned many large breed dogs as well as horses. Becky first came to know and love the bully breeds upon rescuing a seriously injured stray pit bull mix (later named “Doc”) who appeared to have been used as a bait dog. With Becky’s patience and understanding and the pit pull’s inherent nature, Doc quickly and dramatically changed from a scared and untrusting stray to a loving and stable home companion. It was Doc’s rehabilitation and Becky’s understanding of the true nature of the bully breeds that began Becky on her quest to educate the public regarding these wonderful animals. It was Becky’s desire to make a difference in the lives of these misunderstood dogs that led her to become a volunteer and later a board member of the Fresno Bully Rescue.
My first visit to Fresno Bully Rescue was on renovation day, and I’ve been going back ever since. I love being an advocate for this misunderstood breed. Educating the public about these loving dogs is my favorite thing to do. Being adoption coordinator allows me to do this and to meet some great people along the way. Being so compassionate, I have fallen in love over and over again at the shelter and am happiest when I am covered in dog hair and slobber or giving a tour and getting to talk about our pitties. I feel lucky to be able to do what makes me happy and to be a part of the Fresno Bully Rescue family.
Finance Coordinator & Shelter Logistics
Ryan came into this position by being one of the first volunteers for FBR. Ryan and his wife, Bridgette, wanted to help this breed of dog since they were bully owners themselves. Since the start of FBR, management of funds and stability have always seemed to struggle. Owning his own business for the last 10 years he felt he could bring strong business knowledge to this place. His goal for the center is for it to succeed as he knows it can.
