Let Ace the dog Live!

I am heartbroken to learn that despite a public outcry to save an emaciated dog from being euthanized, 'Ace' the dog is expected to be put down on Friday.

'Ace' was discovered by Detroit Animal Control on November 4 in an Ace Hardware store in Detroit.

Nobody has come forward to claim the Pit Bull.

According to city ordinance, an unlicensed animal can be put down within four days of being captured if an owner does not come forward.

The other obstacle: Animal Control doesn’t hand over Pit Bulls to either adopt or rescue.

Several organizations have volunteered to take responsibility for the animal, including the Detroit Humane Society and the Detroit Dog Rescue.

In a Tuesday meeting, City Council President Charles Pugh asked that there be an exception to the city’s policy of adopting out particular breeds. Thank your Council President for your advocay for an animal that cannot advocate for himself.

It is not 'Ace's' fault that he was abandoned and neglected by thoughtless humans.  The organizations that are coming forward know all there is to know about dogs and will ensure that he is poses no threat to anyone. Please make this situation right and give Ace the second chance he deserves and desperately needs.
