This paper can't get anything right. The animal adoption network is now the animal adoption realty and owns the property the SPCA of CT sits on. Remember, people who abuse animals abuse people. This man was arrested in 2005 for animal abuse, and as expected he has gone on to abuse people. This story only gets better with time - much more to learn about this one!

AJP: I will need a new letter from you to put in my notebook so I can flash it to everyone at Court and other rescuers. I can't tell you what it means to me to have that letter you wrote when no one else does! I feel soooo special! My new letter needs to state again how wonderful I am. I need it before April 1st. Oh, let me know if I can come in on Sunday and have the dogs I want, you know the "others" will get blamed and not us! Thank you so much for your support! Say hi to the boys for me!

It is not hard to believe that Fred is a distrustful person. My experience with him was that my family arrived to adopt a dog. We came back multiple times and found one we liked. I should have realized there was a problem when Fred would not let our kids go near the dog. Now, we have had dogs before and our kids were not little (youngest was over age 5), so we know what to expect from a dog. However, the dog we got within 2 days bit our kids 3 times, once in the face!!! I watched as my son simply held his hand out for the dog to sniff and he bit him on the hand. Fred gladly took the dog back, would not give us our money back, even though he knew this dog was not appropriate for us. Then, he promised us a dog that was coming in and when we called to pick it up, he told us he had promised it to a "donor." Didn't our almost $300 qualify us as a donor? Not to mention how filthy the place was. I cannot imagine how unbearable it must be in the summer for the poor cats stacked in crates one on top of another in a greenhouse!!!!!

Do yourself a favor, stay far away from Fred and his business.

Oh Wow!
I don't know which RUSSELL it was, but the 2 previous posters named RUSSELL had warned another poster who was sticking up for this Fred and now you have another side to the story (just as RUSSELL had been trying to tell us)
This is awful-

Guys, come on, you know how the news is....they generally get about half the story told accurately. Let's wait and see what unfolds before crucifying someone. Acker was acquitted of all abuse charges in 2005, that was nasty neighbors who didn't want the shelter in a residential zone.

My sentiments exactly. The people posting here should know
that you only get 1/2 the story with the CT Post.

I saw the conditions at the facility and he was only acquited because the prosecutors didn't want to be bothered with the case - same as all the other cruelty cases they hear. The offenders get a slap on the wrist. The man was beating the employee, with his pants down around his ankles. Now you tell me, what type of man he is. He is a mental case, as I have been saying for years. He is also a stalker and his a safety risk to any woman in his sights. I believe he will do time for this one, the employee was badly beaten and if you think that is ok, your nuts. Maybe you should be threatened by someone like him - see how you feel when his threats to you have been carried out to a third person. This is the type of nut job Acker is. The employee was beaten because she asked him about a fraud case the State of Connecticut won against him for impersonating people, obtaining financial information and selling it to others. He owes the State of Connecticut about $500,000 for fraud and that is a case you don't have to wait to see what the outcome is. State of Connecticut vs. N.R.S. Financial Systems, Inc and Frederick Acker. Case closed. He is to pay the money and it is conclusive, he is nothing more than a hot headed, maladjusted, criminal who beats women, sells animals for profit, and serves no legitimate purpose living among civilized people.

Where in the article did you read that is pants were around his ankles? Maybe you should write for the post, because your info isn't based in fact either!

Ok, Marky, why don't you ask him about the Judgment against him and N.R.S Financial Systems, Inc, which incidentally, at one point, owned the property the Animal Adoption Realty owns (before it was defunct after animal abuse charges) and became the SPCA of CT. Ask him Marky - you sound like you could use a good azz whooping too.

Mr. Acker is going to jail where he belongs. Wasn't that great day of adopting pets the SPCA of CT? Why did he represent himself as the Animal Adoption Network? Because he is a fraud and lies as a matter of common procedure. Ask him about NRS Financial system, in fact, ask him to issue a statement. I would love to read that - that would be something fit for the Enquirer! You pay your taxes? Pay your bills? You think he shouldn't? The State isn't in the red enough that it needs crooks like Acker to not pay their Judgements, taxes, and to create businesses which are exempt from sales tax when in fact he sells pets like he is selling cans off the shelf? You need to put your head back in the sand, right next to Mr. Acker. What about Daisy's post? She's telling tales too? Everybody picking on poor Freddy? Its karma. Pure and simple. People who abuse animals abuse people and visa versa.
