FRAUD ALERT - Jacqueline Yorke Doodle Rescue Collective Stolen Website


In a four 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 IGNORE AND ADD supposed crimes and sins to her manufactured "Fraud Alert."

FACT: THIS website and its url and .org were created and purchased, Jan 19, 2009 by Lynne Fowler.

FACT: The rescue, Doodle Rescue Collective did not exist until Dec 2009 and it was a partnership between Lynne Fowler and Jacquie Yorke.

FACT: The partnership APPLIED for 501c3 in Jan 2010.

FACT: After several differences of opinion as to how the rescue should be run, Ms. Yorke emptied the bank account and was shut out of THIS website.

FACT: Lynne Fowler RESIGNED from the rescue, Doodle Rescue Collective and they started their own website ( but kept the name. They did not achieve 501c3 status until sometime after May of 2010.

FACT: Jacquie Yorke and her rescue has continued a web of lies and slander against us, since May, 2010.

FACT: After 3 moves and many changes in Leadership, Doodle Rescue Collective, Inc. is now located at: 

Doodle Rescue Collective Inc.

PROOF: Our proof is below! Ask Ms. Yorke for her proof. She claimed she is too busy because she HAS NONE.






False allegations sound believable and credible,
until one looks at the evidence.



Unlike my ex-partner, I will leave out speculation, opinion and outright lies. I will not use sensational psycho-babble or half-truths wrapped in spin. In Ms. Yorke's many dissertations, I am guilty of everything from theft, misconduct, animal endangerment, misuse of corporate funds, and the list continues to grow as time goes on.


To be fair, here is the link to her version of the story:






Allegation 1:




In May of 2010, the original DRC website and URLs were stolen from the Doodle Rescue Collective Inc. organization. The individual responsible for this theft is Lynne M. Fowler."

"Our Founder & President  and other DRC founding Board members spent over 16 months creating, building and optimizing our original website for Google and other web based search engines."



Evidence: This website and it's URLs were purchased in January 2009 by Lynne Fowler, NOT by the Doodle Rescue Collective, Inc., NOT Jacquie Yorke. THERE WAS NO DOODLE RESCUE COLLECTIVE, INC. in January 2009. In fact, there was no Doodle Rescue Collective, Inc. until December, 2009.


You can easily also look up who owns a registered URL:

These URLs were purchased on a 2 year renewal by my personal credit card. And since the DRC was asked to leave this website in May 2010, they never paid for any part of these URLs, therefore, THE DRC DOES NOT OWN THEM AND NEVER DID.



Allegation 2:

"Lynne Fowler is a former DRC Board member and former DRC Treasurer LEGALLY REMOVED from our organization by unanimous vote of our Board of Directors in May 2010. 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."

"Lynne Fowler is NOT as she claims, "the founder" or "the creator" of the "Doodle Rescue Collective" organization, nor is she a "former partner" of our President as DRC was co-founded by several other individuals. The DRC organization is as it has always been from the beginning, a collective of volunteers with a diverse Board of Directors in place to ensure that our national, non-profit rescue organization operates in accordance with the laws of the Internal Revenue Service of the United States as stipulated under 501(c)(3) of the federal code. There can be no"partners" in a Board directed not for profit corporation as no one individual can claim ownership of an exempt organization."



I was the founder and creator of the original listing pages on another Doodle forum. In fact, the roots of "Rescued Doodles" can still be found on Doodle World: Look through the pages and notice the dates.

The oldest discussion dates to July 2008:

I met Jacquie Yorke in September or October of 2008 and three of us, with Karen Shoulder, began a friendship based on our love of Doodles and the importance of rescuing them from death in a shelter.

After a conversation about how you cannot find Doodles in shelters, we started looking for them on Petfinder and listing them in a discussion page, so other's could see there were Doodles in shelters. 

We called this listing "Doodles in Need" and after a couple months, it became apparent this "listing service" needed a place of it's own. That's when I started The Doodle Rescue and Resource Collective. THIS WEB SITE.

 Some of the

 original logos

 from 2009.




Anyway, at no time was I anything but partner, founder and friend...until April, 2010.


We began actual rescuing in June, 2009 with Finnegan as our first rescue. I fostered Finny and found him the most wonderful and loving home.

I fostered about 10 more dogs between June and the time I resigned from the DRC. Including Ripley, which I kept as Jacquie Yorke threatened to put down because he snapped at her.


We incorporated the rescue on December 1, 2009. Before this time, we operated out of my personal checking account and my personal Paypal Account. Making ALL transactions, bank statements, receipts, actions, rescues, decisions, profits and losses, MINE. Not Doodle Rescue Collective's, NOT Jacquie Yorke's. This is what I was instructed by my attorney.

All papers/forms/items, belonging to the rescue, created after December 1, 2009, were returned to the DRC as advised by my attorney, at the time of my resignation (May 2010).


From the DRC Narrative for 501(c)(3):

Note I am listed as Vice-President, Assistant Director, Co-Founder, Treasurer, and Trustee on the application narrative. This application was created by Ms. Yorke and myself in December, 2009.



Allegation 3:

"Ms Fowler refuses to comply with various legal orders and missives and continues to defy the law and the legal advice of even her own attorney to return our stolen intellectual property to the Doodle Rescue Collective corporation and organization and cease and desist with its illegal use."

"Lynne Fowler is facing additional legal action and criminal charges for theft, animal endangerment and consumer fraud from individual adopters and reputable animal welfare organizations other than Doodle Rescue Collective."

"Please be advised Ms Fowler's solicitation of funds with a stolen identity is prosecutable THEFT & FRAUD that violates multiple state and federal criminal codes and statues. Legal action on behalf of Doodle Rescue Collective Inc. is pending and federal authorities and agencies are investigating Lynne Fowler and Oodles of Doodles."


I have NOT received ANY Cease and Desist Letter from ANY attorney on behalf of DRC or any entity connected to DRC, NO legal inquiries or criminal charges from ANY entity, NO hand slapping from Petfinder or Adopt-a-Pet and NOTHING to indicate that ANY of Ms. Yorke's allegations are true or being investigated in any way.

All is a blatant lie.



On my own, I applied for incorporation in November, 2010 from the state of NJ.

And my 501(c)(3) in March 2012 and received my determination letter May 1, 2012.



About MY Resignation:


"Ms. Fowler was offered the opportunity to "resign" in lieu of further legal action against her in order to spare her unnecessary embarrassment......


 She refused to resign....


Only upon hearing several hours later that she was invited to attend an emergency Board meeting addressing her misconduct with all 9 Board members and DRC attorneys present, did Lynne Fowler correspond via email that she would "step down."'







I had sent a message after one of those arguments that I would step down due to the fact that I no longer trusted her, dated April 29, 2010

I guess you have misunderstood my last email. I am stepping down. 



After several more arguments between my "partner" and myself, I woke up to a message that our joint bank account had been cleared out. That is when I shut the website on MAY 8, 2010.

A message to all members of The Doodle Rescue Collective

The Doodle Rescue Collective website is temporarily offline for maintenance. If you have an emergency or need immediate assistance, please contact Thank You for your patience.




Notice, no mention of a refusal to resign and also notice that my note to step down was over a week earlier. The only thing I refused on May 9th, was to attend their kangaroo court. (sorry, I wasn't going to add personal feelings).

ALSO NOTE: In their own Board Minutes, it clearly says, they "accept my resignation." No mention of "removal."



Allegation 4:

The Most Blatant Lies of All...I don't even know how to respond to this horrible BS, except if anyone would like to come to my home and look at my books and my rescue dogs, please contact me. This is utter nonsense!


I have moved on and started my 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 us, she has created fake FB accounts to stalk, harass and spy on our rescue and it all just needs to stop.

Ms. Yorke has accused me of theft of the website url: 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 I used the application of the DRC to file for my 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 I am working with, to dissuade them from working with me. 

Ms. Yorke, on her rescue website,, claims I 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.

Ms. Yorke, in continuing harassment, was able to persuade another rescuer, who was working with me, that she should not allow me to foster and find a home for a puppy brought to me home by a puppy mill release. After seeing the connection to DRC, I refused to turn the puppy over, fostered him in my own home, vetted him with my own money 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 my attorney was brought to civil court and I was ordered to divulge the name of the adopter, which I did. Ms. Yorke claims I was ordered to return the dog, which I was not. The court "denied" any further action.

The lies, slander and threats on my character, family, rescue, associates and job, by a National Rescue Group, need to stop. I have provided copies of all documents and evidence on this page and will show whatever is needed.

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.


Notice ATPAR is run by Jodi Goldberg who is a Trustee on the DRC Board (See Below on Page 2 of this page). All claims that there was a lawsuit that was unconnected to DRC is further lies.

Rik G it's a long story.
