Jada and Sonny

Early this month Jada and her son, Sonny, were rescued from the basement of a Syracuse, NY home. They were kept in cages in the basement with no food or water to be seen. Jada was severly emaciated and was left to die. An anonymous tipster messaged the Humane CNY and rescued Jada and Sonny from the horrible conditions.  After Jada was rescued, we learned that she had cancer and has only a couple months to live.  We have set up this page to help raise money to help with Jada's medical expenses and anything else she may need. We also wanted the money to go to her son, Sonny, to hope for him to find a loving family and live a long happy life. Any money donated in excess of what's required for Jada and Sonny will be used to help the many other animals in need at HumaneCNY.

I would just like to thank everyone that has donated so far. You have no idea what it means for Jada and Sonny. We have had so much publicity from this story and it even reached international! Jada is an inspiration for all of the other animals that have been neglected and abused. Hopefully this will give others the courage to say something if they see abuse. Once again thank you from the bottom of Jada and Sonny's heart!

We would like to see a picture of Jada and her son, Sonny. How is he doing ? We would hope he could stay with his mom as long as possible. Several people have asked. Thank you ♥

Thanks to HumaneCNY for all they do for Jada and all the other homeless animals in our community. I know my donation will help Jada and the hundreds of animals they care for every day. It makes me so happy to see all of the animal lovers and Jada supporters chip in to make life a little easier for the homeless and abused animals.

Are they using this money to seek treatment to battle her cancer? They posted last week that she is terminal so I guess I am confused if she is terminal then what am I donating towards. If they are seeking treatment to help her with a battle vs cancer then I would love to donate but would like to know. Thanks and love you Jada!

I am so glad that Jada was rescued, and allowed to live out the remainder of her life in a happy way. It's so sad that people are so neglectful to animals - I have 2 fur babies, and they are my family (and loves of my life). All animals deserve love, care, and to have happy homes. I hope her little puppy Sonny will be able to live a very long and happy life, in a wonderful home.
