Help cancer victim find her service dog


MURRAY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – A Murray woman battling ovarian cancer for the second time has another battle to worry about — Catie Mondon is on a mission to find her service dog who went missing during an apartment complex fire.

Mondon was inside one of the units at the Brittany Apartments that was cleared out after a fire tore through the third floor Saturday night. She said her service dog Jade ran off when firefighters kicked in the door.

The 21-year-old has had Jade ever since September of 2015, two months after her cancer came back. Jade is there to provide comfort to Mondon while she undergoes chemotherapy. 

So far, Mondon said she has walked 17 miles looking for Jade, has contacted Animal Control and put alerts all over social media — but so far there’s no word on Jade’s whereabouts. 

“I’ve had her since she was eight-weeks old and we’re pretty bonded — we spend most of our time together. I can imagine it’s pretty hard for her to be apart, especially after a kind of traumatic incident. She’s probably scared but she’ll come to you if you call her ‘Jade’.. She also goes by Bugsy. She’s a lover but she’s probably scared. I just want her home.”

If you see Jade, please call Catie Mondon at (435) 237-7490.
