Runway pets: Canine couture for a cause
Seventh grader Aubrey Stern has always loved animals. As she approaches her 13th birthday, Aubrey has been preparing to become bat mitzvah at Temple Israel in Winter Springs. So, it's no surprise that when Aubrey was told one of the requirements of becoming bat mitzvah is to perform community service, she chose to support a local no-kill animal rescue organization. To do this, she held a dog fashion show as a fund-raiser and education event for Pet Rescue by Judy. Aubrey raised $350 at the dog show.
Pet Rescue by Judy is a local 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the rescue of cats and dogs. Many of them come to Pet Rescue by Judy (PRBJ) with medical needs where they are doctored to the best of PRBJ's ability and resources. The Dog Fashion Show was held at the Seminole County Cooperative Extension Auditorium in Sanford and was a success.
The "models" were adoptable dogs from Pet Rescue by Judy. Assisting Aubrey at the show were friends and students from the Temple Israel Meitin Religious School.
For those who would still like to make a donation, checks should be made to Pet Rescue by Judy and can be sent to either the Stern's address (please call 407-314-3520 for address) or directly to Pet Rescue by Judy, 2620 Iroquois Ave, Sanford, FL 32773. Donations of goods from Pet Rescue by Judy's wish list (seen at http://www.petrescuebyjudy.com or visit the Facebook page at http://www.Facebook.com/RunwayPets) should go directly to PRBJ.
