The various groups working to save Ace and the other animals housed at the Detroit Animal Control (DAC) facility are having a candlelight vigil tonight in front of the DAC. As of this writing, over 620 people have said they will be attending. From the event’s Facebook page:
Candlelight vigil for Ace
Thursday November 10, 2011 – 7pm-10pm
Outside of the D.A.C.
3511 West Jefferson Avenue, Detroit, MI
Bring a candle to light and one for a friend who might need one. This needs to be a PEACEFUL gathering of concerned citizens, to bring LIGHT to the fact… that there are people who support Ace and want to bring about positive change in the City of Detroit and want to do it peacefully and professionally. Put aside your past concerns with other animal rescue groups, your anger towards the asinine “laws” that our city currently enforces and come out and ban together for Ace and the 1000′s of dogs and cats like him. Lift a candle to show support for the millions of homeless, abused, and neglected animals who are counting on ALL animal lovers across this nation to be their voice and advocate for their well being. Individuals acting out in anger, frustration, and hate rarely create the type of positive change that a group of dedicated, peaceful, people wanting to educate the general public and create real change can do. Together we can make a difference.
My wife and I will be there and will have photos and a report later this evening or tomorrow.
