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.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
