WHEN WILL THEY STOP KILLING OUR FAMILY MEMBERS? 
ADAMS COUNTY - A dog was shot to death by Adams County deputies Monday night, according to the Animal Law Center.
The Center claims the 8-year-old blue heeler/border collie mix named Ziggy was killed by the deputies.
The Animal Law Center says the shooting occurred in the 5400 block of Tennyson Street in Denver.
Jeff Fisher, the owner of Ziggy, as well as Jennifer Edwards, a lawyer and founder of the Animal Law Center, spoke to media members at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Fisher claimed deputies opened his door at 8 p.m. on Monday. Ziggy ran outside and the deputies shot his 35-pound dog three times.
He claims deputies had the wrong address.
"They just opened the door and opened fire on my dog," Fisher said sobbing.
Fisher says the deputy told him: "You need to calm down. You can get a new dog."
Fisher described the whole situation as "surreal" and claims Ziggy was not being aggressive. 
"That dog was my best friend," Fisher said. "They never informed they were police officers ... They shot him on a concrete slab. IT's never going to be the same. I raised that guy since he was 6 weeks old."
Fisher just wants the police to take "responsibility for their actions."
"[Ziggy's] not going to jump on my bed anymore," Fisher said crying.
