Dutchess was a german shepherd puppy who came to my home at 16 weeks of age weighing only 19lbs due to having Mega Esaphogus. She could not eat with out vomitting and needed special care. She saddly went from home to home as nobody could figure out what her ailement was, and then ended up at a shelter. She was taken from the shelter and brought to my home where I cared for her for the next year. Sadly, she has passed away due to compliactions from Mega Esaphogus.

Dutchess when she came to my home at 4 months old.

In her memory, I am starting the Dutchess Fulton Foundation to help special needs dogs. The Dutchess Fulton Foundation will be a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that will assist rescues and individuals by paying the medical bills of homeless pets that might otherwise be over looked at the shelter as Dutchess was. Dogs with illnesses at the shelter are often over looked due to the financial burden pulling them from the shelter will put upon the rescue. The Dutchess Fullton Foundation will help with those expenses, acting as a fundraising arm and partner with the rescue. Each rescue must of course meet our criteria in that they are a 501c3 charitible organization and our back ground screening.

Will will also assist pet owners who have pets afflicted specifically with Mega Espaphogus in purchaing a Bailey chair for their dog, and other unexpected expenses that arise from caring for a dog with ME.

We are asking for your assistance in funding this new venture. The cost to start a non profit organization is approximate $1000. This includes the legal fees and filings associated with forming a non profit Foundation. A foundation differs from a rescue in that we are primarly raising money  to pay for a medical expense such as a surgery. To form a foundation also takes approximately one year. As you can imagine it is quite a process!  Thank you for supporting Dutchess for the past year in following her journey and thank you for helping me in this oppurtinity for her to live on through a foundation in her name!

Respectfully,

Jacquelyn Hathaway
