Eric & Monica Febles
Founder / President
Monica Febles became a Pit Bull advocate when she adopted her first Pit Bull, Mocha in 2002. She has always fought against the negative stereotypes that have been associated with Pit Bull type dogs. Even though she didn’t have her for many years, Mocha taught her the true beauty of the breed.
“My husband and I adopted our first beautiful Pit Bull mix “Kaos” on May 2009 and a year later we welcomed home Bravo, who is now the face of Brave Bully Rescue. Our Passion for this misunderstood breed has driven us to work tirelessly to restore the image of “America’s Dog” to its rightful place. We became aware of the overpopulation and stray problem in Houston, Texas with thousands being euthanized yearly. Shelters and rescues were bursting at the seams! All of this propelled my husband Eric and I to start a Bully rescue. Together, we founded Brave Bully Rescue on March 14, 2014. We now have three new rescued bullies in our pack, Chance, Ruckus, Tank and Manny! Our rescue works closely with Gray Wolf Canine Rehabilitation in a training program for fosters and adopted dogs. Our goal is to certify some of our adoptable Brave Bullies as “Canine Good Citizen” so they can be great ambassadors to the breed!”
