1.29.16 - Rescue Group Makes Bucket List for Dog Who’s Spent Life in a Cage6

 

Earlier in January, a dog named Jada and her son Jinx (aka Sonny) were rescued from basement cages in a Syracuse, NY home.  Jada was severely emaciated, and when she was taken in for medical treatment, it was discovered that she has cancer and only a couple months to live.  Because she may have never known an ounce of joy in her nine years on this planet, Humane CNY is determined to spoil her rotten.

A phone call to CNY sent police to the residence of Gregory Bryant and Tanisha Fain, where Jada and Jinx were being kept in cages in a dark basement with no food or water.  Jada, only half of her ideal body weight, would not have lasted much longer.  Jinx was in better condition, but still being treated poorly.

Bryant and Fain have been charged with failure to provide proper sustenance, failure to provide proper medical attention, and improper confinement.  Sadly, all of these are only misdemeanors, so the abusers each face only one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

CNY took both dogs in and sought medical treatment for them.  Jada was found to have cancer, and has a limited amount of time left.  So the rescue group has created a bucket list for Jada with all sorts of adventures – eat a steak, become a TV star, eat ice cream, etc.  Of course, dogs don’t care about becoming famous or getting manicures or meeting the mayor, but they certainly love all the extra attention!

Jada could really use a loving home to spend her final days.  She needs to be the only pet, and it is preferred that the home be a calm place without small children.  Jinx is about ready for a home, too, and isn’t nearly as picky.

  1. What a sad and tragic all due to “Two Heartless people”, can’t all them human beings because they are not.. Life has a way of “karma” what goes around comes around….
    Thank You to ALL that are trying too help Jada on her last days on earth. She is so deserving of more. Jinx her son has a chance to find that loving home, and forgot the misery from the start of his life.
