Help Save Jack From being Falsely Accused

Hi my name is Cathy and I’m fundraising for my friend Vanessa Combs and her Vervet Monkey Jack Wayne Combs the only legal monkey in West Virginia being falsely accused of biting someone whom he’s never even met and keeps telling people she’s going to sue the family for everything they have including their farm. The hospital found this was not a monkey bite, the police also did not press charges as did not the FDA. The young woman however has gone now to the usda who had a hearing today 9/28 and has put Jack on house arrest which also puts his mom on house arrest until the next hearing which is 11/7. At that time they will decide if Jack will be taken from the only family he had known since he’s 8 weeks only and either destroyed or given to whom knows put where .. Jack is an intelligent monkey who learns new things everyday and has his own bedroom and lives with many other animals including his best friend a deaf Pitbull named Pookey . He’s helped bottle feed kittens . Raise puppies . So all this not only inconveniences by her not being able to grocery shop and do her errands for the family but is also putting great financial strain on them. Anything you can donate to help this family would greatly be appreciated.
