Compassion and Hope for
The Jake Brady Memorial Fund, a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization, is established
in the life and memory of Jake Brady, an extraordinary Dalmatian
who shared his love for 14 years and 23 days. Sadly, Jake
passed away on February 17, 2006 from a chronic kidney disorder,
one of the three major silent diseases affecting adult Dalmatians.
He is truly missed, and will live forever in our hearts.
The objective of the Jake Brady
Memorial Fund is simple: To provide funding for corrective, suitable, and life-saving medical treatment to companion animals of
families in need.
Our goal is to provide for quality care with a focus on major occurrences (i.e. not
for routine veterinarian visits) which may include:
- Emergency Treatment
- Surgical Procedures
- Testing, Medications, and Vaccinations
- Preventive Therapy
- Room and Board
Fund recipients of companion animals include:
- Senior citizens and retirees on fixed income
- Low income families with documented annual incomes of less than $18,000 per year
- Physically and/or mentally impaired
- Unemployed and/or receiving government assistance

The Fund services the
State of Ohio only, taking all qualified applications under consideration. Determination is
made through a formalized funding application process reviewed by our Board of Trustees,
and is based on the financial situation of the family involved, whether the companion
animal will lead a quality, healthy life after specialized medical procedures are
completed, and the amount of funds the Jake Brady Memorial Fund has available at time
