Free Lucky and Charge His Owner with Animal Cruelty

Lucky, a nine-year-old mixed breed dog, spent almost half of his life locked in the basement of a house, after his barking from being left alone in the backyard prompted complaints from the neighbors. For the past two months, Lucky's owner has been gone. According to a neighbor, Lucky has been sporadically fed by an ex-husband, who will just "open the sliding glass basement door about a foot, pour dry food through, add a can of wet food and quickly leave."

Since Lucky had food and water, animal control was reluctant to intervene, even though the dog was neglected of any interaction and living in his own waste. Lucky was finally confiscated from the home while the owner is being investigated for animal cruelty.

However, now he is once again confined at the animal shelter for the duration of the case. He should be released to a foster home or animal sanctuary where he can start living the life he deserves.

Ask the prosecuting attorney to charge Lucky's owners with animal cruelty and to allow his release to a foster home or animal sanctuary while the case is underway.

      because every dog or any animal is just as alive with a spirit that is crushed by the owners they say loved them once, lucky & other;s are living feeling, breathing, emotional, neglected but unlike humans who can leave and verbalize to other humans animals only have the voice of a bark that comes out. That is their way of expressing to the owners, neighbors, hey help listen to my cries and pleadings from me barking out loud so u will hear me & please help me, care for me with hugs and pets, take me for walks, give me kisses as i kiss you showing you how i do unconditional love for you PLEASE GIVE IT TO ME BACK!!! My name is LUCKY won't you come take me home?
