see below to learn how you can help!
Evan Spector is raising money to help rescue animals. His family adopted their dog Pippi a few years ago, and she is a very big part of his life. He is baking and selling Homemade Doggie Cookies that your best friends will go CRAZY for!!! All $$$ raised will be donated to Mulligan Animal Rescue , in Mt. Royal, New Jersey. The four women who run the rescue out of their homes, believe all animals deserve a mulligan - a second chance. They rescue abandoned, abused, injured, and homeless animals, help them get healthy, and find a permanent home for them. 
The cookies are Vegan, made with fresh pumpkin, peanut butter, and whole wheat flour.  3 cookies for $5, and 8 cookies for $10.  And that includes delivery!
 
Please consider supporting Evan and Mulligan Animal Rescue, while making your pups really happy. Please contact Evan's parents if you’d like to order. If you don’t have a dog, feel free to donate on http://mulligananimalrescue.com/ ) in honor of his Bar Mitzvah.
