RIP Ace

ACE UPDATES:

Ace Advocates.

Breaking News from Save Ace: Detroit has agreed to a moratorium on killing brown and tan bully breeds as talks continue. There is a possibility some dogs will be released from DAC soon. While info is scarce at the moment please realize action IS being taken and it couldn’t be done without your support.

 

Today our legal team had a great meeting in City Hall! They have agreed to work with us and make policy changes on how the city and DAC handles pitties, also general shelter policies. We all have the same goal in mind, and we know the first change we want made. We want Ace’s killer out! We are having a meeting this weekend to come up with our plan of attack. This fight has just begun, and we will be victorious. We will bring change, defend Ace’s legacy, and save a lot of would-be Ace’s in the future. Thank you all for your support, we will keep working hard and keep everyone informed!

apparently Ace was already killed on Monday, so they covered up his death, ugh…the plot thickens, will break your already broken heart…sickening…

Five things to do for Ace…

in my humble opinion, the petition to the White House while well intentioned is misguided. Yes, there needs to be laws in place in all 50 states, but I don’t think that there is going to be a federal law for all shelters. And I think the language encompasses too much, very broad in scope. Am willing to be and hope I am wrong.  I did sign the petition to fire the culprits. Do as you think best.

So sad… this from the man who found Ace and tried to do right by him…

“Dear Ace, you came into my lobby, crouched behind my door and stared blankly at the wall, shaking. I could see your pain – I fed you, warmed you and you rewarded me by finally looking into my eyes, and for a moment, we shared your pain. I reached for the phone, thinking that I could find you a better life… Instead I sent you to your death. Please forgive me. You did not die in vain, nor will you be forgotten. This I promise you. Your last but far from only friend.” – Mark

Now for more news…

A lawyer who fought for the injunction to save Ace yesterday says he plans to sue the city. He claims he served the DAC with the proper papers a full 24 hours before they euthanized Ace. That would conflict with their story that they never received the paperwork from the court. Story on Fox Detroit.

Don’t just be outraged by Ace’s killing, make it illegal: Despite a court order demanding he not be killed and despite rescue group offers to save him, Detroit’s mayor and pound leadership killed him anyway. While this has outraged animal lovers, it should not shock them. In New York, 71% of rescue groups have been turned away from shelters and then those shelters have killed the very animals they offered to save. In Florida, 63% of rescue groups have reported the same thing.

But if Ace had been in California, it would have been illegal for ANY shelter to kill him. California makes it illegal for shelters to kill animals who rescue groups are willing to save. Similar laws are pending in MN, FL, and NY. It should be illegal in all 50 states. We’ve got a model rescue rights law and more: www.rescue50.org/groups.html

Don’t just be upset, make it illegal! It is time to reclaim these organizations so they reflect, rather than hinder, our values.  (from Nathan Winograd)

in the world of the ASPCA, saving lives is “extremist” but subjecting the animals to daily neglect, cruelty, and the ultimate form of violence—killing—is to be defended and protected.

below is the sub-human who put Ace to sleep…he and Harry Ward must be removed and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  we cannot tolerate this.

Bruce King, Director of Detroit Health Services that oversees Detroit Animal Control who killed Ace. Here is his twitter account: http://twitter.com/#!/kingbm

I feel sick … while we’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting verdicts about Lennox’s fate and Patrick’s abuser’s verdict, hearts have been captured by the story of a sweet emaciated pit bull named Ace in Detroit. Now today, despite an owner who had come forward, injunctions that were filed, public outcry, media attention, numerous folks that wanted to adopt him, BadRap, and other rescue groups pleading for his life, the Detroit Animal Control sub-humans went ahead and killed Ace today. Why? Because of his being a pit bull… These miscreants need to be held accountable for their crimes. Either they had killed him already and lied about it or they killed him today.

  1. It’s a sad day today. I hope the day that BSL will be stopped and banned will come soon. So all the breeds on that list will finally be safe. And get the opportunity to be united with a new loving family. To many innocent dogs die cause of this stupid law. If only our legislators would take their heads out of their asses, and get the picture. There is no such thing as dangerous dogs, there are only dangerous owners! So all around the world: Stop judging the BREED, start judging the DEED!!!!

    Somehow I just knew in my heart that these idiots had already euthanized this poor, frightened dog. This would mean that they broke their own 4 day waiting period AND a Judge’s ruling. I have been so worried that this may have happened to Lennox because the animal control there has also lied and been deceitful which in my opinion just proves there is an effort to hide the truth. Why aren’t all of these people being held accountable for their defiance to the law and when are we going to demand their jobs! No one who truly loves dogs would behave in this manor. Shelter officials should care deeply about the animals in their care and instead we get incompetent, arrogant POSs that are devoid of compassion. My god, the owner was even there to claim the dog. What more did she have to do! This is inexcusable!

    I am so angry and heartbroken for our failure to save this dog and the countless others like Oreo. We must demand change in the municipal shelter system and the removal of officials who narrow-mindedly cling to the outdated and statistically wrong view that the only way to deal with any homeless pit bull is to euthanize them. Morons………

    • Don’t know the truth or which is worse… if they already put Ace to sleep, and are lying and said that they did so TODAY after all of everything was in place to save him or if they killed him today. Either way, what they did is cruel, inhumane and should be grounds for their being fired asap.

  3. What a travesty our “shelter” system is.
    It’s about time America wakes up and stops the madness. The truly tragic thing is this isn’t unusual at all. It is happening all over this country.,

    bruce king – A person with no conscience. He ignored all the pleas to save the dog named “Ace” that I am sure he was aware of and instead claims he did not receive the court order before closing. That is only 4 days after “Ace” was taken in. I believe the law is to hold the dog for five days which would have allowed him to get the court order. I would GUARANTEE that he was aware of the interest in… this dog and heartlessly did not allow any rescue groups or any of the thousands of people in contact with his office to at least delay the EXECUTION. He has no soul or concern for the wishes of the people. If he was hired he should be fired. If he was elected he should be impeached. If he broke the law he should be prosecuted.

  5. Until shelters actually provide shelter for “unwanted” and lost animals, they should be called death camps. I cannot tolerate the death of animals who–because of humans–are considered excess, surplus, or unwanted. As my “little” pibble, Rocky, lies across my lap, snoring, I think he would make a much better shelter boss than the humans who are doing it. At least he shows he cares.

  6. Just look at that smug, ugly face on him. He has no conscious at all. He doesn’t care that that he is directly responsible for killing thousands of animals. In fact, anyone who does that job must be a sociopath. Everyone involved in this crime needs to fired and prosecuted.

  7. If we were to judge people by their looks rather than by their individual character, the way this clown and people like him do with dogs, then I would have this pedophile-looking bozo thrown in jail.
    But since we are better than that, I’d like to see him, and them, punished for their crimes against nature, which he is, and they are, most definitely guilty of.

    LOOK AT THAT FACE, UGLYS NOT THE WORD, MY GOD HE SHOULD WEAR A BAG ON HIS HEAD, IN IRELAND HE WOULD BE CALLED A ….. GOB SHITE….. HE AND HARRY WARD HAVE TO BE SACKED AND JAILED FOR WHAT THEY DID TO ACE AND THOUSANDS OF OTHER ANIMALS. TALK ABOUT ABUSE OF THEIR POSITION, AND THOSE IN HIGHER POWER WHO GAVE THEM THEIR JOBS, WHO KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING AND LET THEM GT AWAY WITH IT, SACK AND JAIL THEM TOO. THEY ARE WORTHLESS SUB HUMANS.
