Hooch update


Hooch is doing amazing! He has a great appetite and doesn't let on that he is in any pain or discomfort. See pics of him after his surgery, and happy at home with Foster Dad Jacob!

We've raised $1490, still need $910 to pay off his bill, please keep forwarding, thank you so much!

Hooch from Ace of Hearts!

Hello Wonderful Ace of Hearts Supporters,

Great news about Hooch! Some of you may have known that we thought he might have a tumor on his spine, it's not a tumah! We had an MRI done yesterday and he has 2 discs that can be corrected with surgery, but only if done ASAP! He's undergoing surgery tomorrow, we don't actually have the funds at this time but can't wait until we raise them or it will be too late. The estimate is approximately $2500.

Please forward to anyone you think may be able to help. No amount is too small, imagine if everyone you know would just give up Starbucks for one day! Donations can be made via pay pal directly on our site -

Dog-fighting ring busted at day care center

Blood spattered the garage of a home day care in Chicago Ridge, Ill., that was also the base of an alleged dog- fighting ring, authorities said Wednesday, describing battered and malnourished dogs and the devices used to train them found not far from where children played.

Police said four people were arrested, and felony dog-fighting charges are pending against several of them, including the day care operator's husband. Authorities did not immediately release their names.

Nine battered dogs - four of which were puppies - were rescued, police said.

"The dogs were in horrific condition," Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart said at the Animal Welfare League in suburban Chicago Ridge, where several of the dogs were undergoing surgery and rehabilitation. "This is as bad as we've seen."

Dart said approximately 10 children were found in the day care during the raid Tuesday, but they were not in the immediate vicinity of the dogs.

Illinois Department of Children and Family Services spokesman Kendall Marlowe said the Maywood day care was shut down Wednesday and was under investigation. He said it had been licensed since March 2004 and for a capacity of seven children.

Humane responders take on task of socializing 500 dogs from raid

On Sunday, a team of 11 Red Star Animal Emergency Services responders from the American Humane Association will return to a shelter near St. Louis to help care for and socialize some 500 dogs that were rescued in a July dogfighting raid, the biggest in U.S. history, which spanned Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Texas.

This news comes on the heels of guilty pleas from Robert Hackman, Teddy Kiriakidis, Ronald Creach and Michael Morgan entered Monday to conspiracy and other crimes, admitting their roles in breeding, trafficking, fighting and killing pit bulls in a lucrative dogfighting network, the Associated Press reports. A fifth co-defendant, Jack Ruppel, pled guilty Sept. 4.

During the raid, agents also seized "rape stands" used to strap female dogs into place to be bred. One hundred puppies have been born since the raids.

Breeding is crucial to the industry because fighting dogs don't live long, says Tim Rickey, director of the Humane Society of Missouri's anti-cruelty task force.

The Humane Society of Missouri staff "is outstanding," says Red Star Animal Emergency Services program manager Tracy Reis. "This temporary shelter is one of the best run that I've seen. They've been working this shelter since the beginning and are tireless in their efforts to care for these dogs. I'm proud that they've asked us to help."

New video from the Humane Society of Missouri shows dogs chained and caged with ribs showing, lips chewed and legs missing:

"To know that three-legged dogs were forced to fight for their survival is too much," said Rickey.
