Ontario SPCA calling on cupcake lovers to help animals in need

By Alex Black

It's a great day to indulge your sweet tooth and help animals in need at the same time. 

Monday, Feb. 27 is Cupcake Day for the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) and Humane Society and there are multiple ways to help provide urgently needed care and shelter for animals waiting for their forever home. 

You're encouraged to bake some delicious creations at home, share them with friends and family (or don't!) and donate to the Ontario SPCA animal centre of your choice.

If you don't have time for baking, or just don't have baking skills (like me), you can support a local bakery by purchasing a cupcake, then go online to cupcakeday.ca to donate.

The Ontario SCPA said, while it might seem like a small gesture, it can make a big impact. 

“Cupcake Day for the Ontario SPCA is truly the sweetest day of the year,” says Stephanie Miller, vice president, development, Ontario SPCA and Humane Society. “This is a great opportunity to have some fun, while changing the lives of animals in need in your community.”

As a registered charity that does not receive government funding, the Ontario SPCA depends on the generosity of donors to help animals in need.
