Rachel Rose’s Tzedakah Gift

February 18th, 2013

By Amy Shrodes, Manager of Development

Rachel Rose had a lot of options when planning for her Bat Mitzvah service project, but her passion for animals inspired her to raise money for OK Humane. Rachel (13), a member of Emanuel Synagogue, raised $1,400 by baking and selling dog biscuits. She donated the money to the Central Oklahoma Humane Society as part of her tzedakah (charity) project.

Rachel’s donation went to purchase a vital piece of equipment for our in-house clinic. Our in-house clinic staff was ecstatic to receive the chemistry analyzer vet test that her dog biscuit money enabled us to purchase. Our In-House Veterinarian Dr. Beth Ruby says “This lab machine has allowed us to elevate the standard of care we provide to our animals. We can perform much needed blood tests to diagnose and monitor illness.”

Rachel, the OK Humane staff and animals thank you for your support!
