May was supposed to be dead by now. The charcoal-and-white pit bull mix had languished more than two months at a high-kill animal shelter in east Los Angeles County. Although she'd passed one "temperament test," she failed a second. That put her on death row.

But a small rescue group reserved May a spot on a bus to take her 840 miles north to Eugene, Ore., where another rescue pledged to find her a home.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - More than 20 years ago, "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" descended upon movie theaters, with Jim Carrey portraying the cartoonish, wisecracking south Florida private investigator specializing in finding missing animals.
