Founder

Marie is the founder and director of The fetch Foundation.  Her love and appreciation of dogs and her realization of the need to protect man's best friend inspired her to do "something", and that something is outfitting first responders with animal life-saving equipment and to turn dogs destined for euthanasia into search and rescue or service dogs.  Marie is the sister of a firefighter and mother of another.  Through her efforts, not only are the lives of dogs saved, but they are, in turn, saving and changing even more lives.
