Dear Editor:

We would like to give a very gratetful thank you to The Times News for putting the picture of Unlucky in the paper. The letter to the editor was the only place Unlucky, the abandoned rottweiler, could reach the public for those who would hear about his horrible plight. The only place!!!!

Humans did this to poor Unlucky, and now that he did survive, he needs humans to help him to recover from his long term injuries. UNlucky needs an M.R. I so they can determine the extent of his leg damage before they cut his leg off. That alone is over a thousand dollars. Unlucky's emails are asking where to send their donations. Please send donations to Unlucky The Dog at Carbon County Friends Of Animals, 900 Walnut Avenue, Jim Thorpe, Pa. 18229.

You must say that it is for the medical expenses of Unlucky.

Unlucky is doing well in his foster home for now, and is trusting people more than he did before. He had such a fear of people in the beginning, but, thanks to the loving care he is receiving now, he is less fearful of people. He does not understand that the days ahead will be painful with the amputation and recovery.The worst part of his physical nightmare is yet to come. We who are trying to get this poor dog the medical care that he needs are struggling to help him. Things are going slowly. Please help him!!

We want to thank the Times News for printing the picture of Unlucky and our letter in the newspaper. The picture shows what real cruelty to animals really looks like.

Unlucky, if he could speak and understand that there are good and caring people that want to help him live a happy dog life in his future, he would say "Thank you all for helping me. Because of you, I can be a loving companion again. Thank you very much. Bow Wow!"

Thank you, everyone!
