On April 30, 2019, a 10 week old puppy was found dead in West Milford (NJ) Lake.. She was posthumously and affectionately named "Jenny." Found in the cage with Jenny was a wee-wee pad and a lead-crystal ice bucket that authorities believe was used to weigh down the cage.

Tonya Fea, 47, of Jefferson Township, NJ  was is charged on May 7, 2019 with two counts of animal cruelty and one of trespassing, per authorities. 


A reward was offered by The Last Resort Animal Rescue that quickly ballooned to $12,000, thanks to contributions.

The non-profit animal mission also launched the hashtag #JusticeForJenny.

"One of our rescue officers at The Last Resort Rescue noticed a crate at the edge of the pond on Bonter Road on the oak ridge side of town with a puppy in it," wrote Nancy Warner.

"The puppy was dead and ice cold and soaking wet inside the crate, lakebed vegetation hanging on the crate," Warner said.

The pads had some blood on them and were stuck to Jenny's head, she said.

The man who spotted the cage, pulled it out of the water with the puppy inside and left it at the water's edge came forward soon after to assist police. A friend of his described the man as "a foster/rescuer who is an avid animal advocate and lover."

Fea was released pending a May 22 first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Paterson, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and West Milford Police Chief Timothy Storbeck said in a joint announcement.

PLEASE sign this petition urging the prosecutor to ask for and demand the maximum punishment for the alleged puppy killer should she be found guilty. 

Thank you for asking for #JusticeForJenny.
