The core of Ambassador Pit Bull Alliance is our volunteers. These are people with full-time jobs, families, and their own dogs but choose to donate their time to help spread APBA’s message when they can. Each volunteer has their own story so we’re featuring one Ambassador Pit Bull Alliance volunteer each month to highlight their connection to our cause. Thank you to our volunteers, for all you do!
Featured Volunteer for August: Susie Thompson Bruckschen
Featured APBA Event for August: Dog Day at Breaux Vineyards
Susie is our most valuable volunteer & our featured volunteer for the month of August. Susie is a founding member of Ambassador Pit Bull Alliance & has made her mark on the rescue & everyone she meets, including dogs! Here’s what some of her fellow volunteers have to say…
Phuong – Sunshine Susie, has been my rescue mentor since day one. She absolutely loves rescuing – watching the transformation from shelter pup to family dog is one of her greatest joys, & you can see it, just by talking to her. She’s a great friend & volunteer, always been my second-hand man, helping me out anyway she can, & always willing to go the extra mile. I love her!
Sean – For a long time Susie has been a major player in keeping APBA alive. Her dedication & time committed to keeping things running smoothly is unbelievable. Her willingness to provide a temporary (or permanent) foster for dogs in need even when her house is full shows her dedication and sacrifice she is willing to make to help each dog succeed.
Michelle – Susie is the heart & soul of APBA. She is my rescue mom! She definitely knows how to make a volunteer feel like part of the family. Everything she does for our fosters is done with total care & she truly lights up when she sees a pup go from shelter to forever home.
Lawrence – I’d like to reemphasize her ability to keep things alive when things were getting challenging for APBA. Susie is genuine, thoughtful, & a caring person fully committed to the wellbeing of dogs & humans alike.
Christina – Susie is just such a down to earth & good hearted person who cares immensely for the dogs (& the APBA family as a whole). She puts a lot of time & effort into the rescue & is often the first to step up in a time of need (i.e. her willingness to be a temporary foster). We all love her!
Adrian – One of my fondest memories of Susie is hearing her speak so passionately about fostering & foster dog Buddy’s growth during his recovery & journey. I truly admire her hard work & dedication to the cause.
Thank you, Susie for all that you do!
