The Dotty Fund was set up to provide financial assistance to local families in need who may not be in a position to pay for necessary medical treatment for their pets. The Dotty Fund has been in existence since 2001, but attained its 501c3 not-for-profit status in 2010. We operate solely on private donations (which are tax-deductible), grants and small fund raising ventures.
To have met Dotty is to have loved Dotty. She truly left her mark on the heart of every human and animal she came in contact with. She was bright, funny, personable, dedicated, and a force to be reckoned with. She dedicated her life to fighting for animal rights and helping animals, especially those in the Huntington Town Shelter where she was the primary dog temperament assessor until she succumbed to cancer. Dotty bequeathed a small amount of money to cover expenses for the shelter dogs and we have vowed to keep the fund alive in honor of Dotty’s spirit.
