In a two plus year vendetta of slander and lies, Jacqueline (Jacquie) Yorke, President of a National 501(c)(3) Dog Rescue, Doodle Rescue Collective, Inc. (DRC), has engaged in a smear campaign of her ex-rescue partner and co-founder, Lynne Fowler. Lynne resigned from the rescue she helped to create in May 2010, BEFORE
it was granted 501(c)(3) status. Ms. Yorke has been issued several cease and desist letters, detailing that the slander must stop, and she has continued to add supposed crimes and sins to her manufactured "Fraud Alert
Ms. Fowler has moved on and started her own dog rescue, Oodles of Doodles Rescue, Inc., and has now, also achieved 501(c)(3) status and with the constant contacting of friends and rescue associates, to bad mouthing and name calling, such as "broker" and "hoarder" and worse, Ms. Yorke is the epitome of a liar. She has attempted to sway shelters and other rescues from working with Ms. Fowler, she has created fake FB accounts to stalk, harass and spy on the newer rescue and it all just needs to stop.
Ms. Yorke has accused Ms. Fowler of theft of the website url: doodlerescuecollective.com and .org that are clearly in the public sector to investigate and her claims they belong to anyone other than Lynne Fowler, are false. Ms. Yorke has made claims that Ms. Fowler used the application of the DRC to file for her own 501(c)(3), which is ridiculous. As if the IRS would be that stupid. Ms. Yorke has sent emails to shelters and rescues that Ms. Fowler is working with, to dissuade them from working with her.
Ms. Yorke, on her rescue website, http://doodlerescue.org/
, claims Lynne Fowler was "removed for theft, misconduct, animal endangerment, misuse of corporate funds and the theft and disabling of the original DRC website and URLs." Yet, also mentions the resignation letter, and provides a copy of the Board Minutes, clearly stating, "resignation." Where are the legal charges? There are none. http://doodlerescue.org/group/rescueinthenews/forum/topics/doodlerescuecollectivecom-url?xg_source=activity
Ms. Yorke, in continuing harassment, was able to persuade another rescuer, who was working with Ms. Fowler, that she should not allow Ms. Fowler to foster and find a home for a puppy brought to her home by a puppy mill release. Ms. Fowler refused to turn the puppy over, fostered him in her own home and found a wonderful family to adopt him. Months later, claims that the pup was sick and unvetted began to circulate and a civil lawsuit, called "frivolous" by an attorney was brought to civil court and Ms. Fowler was ordered to divulge the name of the adopter, which she did. Ms. Yorke claims she was ordered to return the dog, which she was not. The court "denied" any further action.
The lies, slander and threats on Ms. Fowler's character, family, rescue, associates and job, by a National Rescue Group, need to stop. Ms. Fowler has provided copies of all documents and evidence on her website at: http://www.doodlerescuecollective.com/group/thedoghouse/forum/topics/drc-fraud-alert-bull
This behavior, of a Federally Approved 501(c)(3) Non-Profit is unbecoming and unprofessional. The lies continue to pile up and if the Board of Directors of The Doodle Rescue Collective, Inc. cannot put a stop to this, the public should.
