My name is Zacari Turest-Swartz. I’ve always been passionate about animals. I absolutely love them. I have two dogs and two cats. I chose to do my Bar Mitzvah project at the SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) because I wanted to help cheer up the animals, and to help the SPCA make life easier for everyone (animals and humans) there. I helped to clean the cages, feed the cats and dogs, as well as walk the dogs. I also played with the animals and had so much fun doing so. I'm so glad I got this opportunity. I loved doing this Mitzvah!
