“Baking a Difference” for the Orangeville and District SPCA

February 9, 2017   ·   0 Comments

The Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Orangeville and District (SPCA) hope to raise $11,000 during their 5th Annual National Cupcake Day on February 27th.

Across Canada ovens will be baking chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and red velvet cupcakes, just to name a few, all in support of the Ontario SPCA.

“National Cupcake Day is fun, delicious and, best of all, it changes the lives of animals that have endured hardship and cruelty,” says Calla Spencer, Manager, Ontario SPCA Orangeville & District Animal Centre. “The funds you raise will have a significant impact on the animal welfare societies in your community, ensuring that their life-saving work continues.”

You can register to host a National Cupcake Day party and invite co-workers, friends and family.  They then donate to the participating animal welfare charity of the host’s choice in exchange for a cupcake.  Thus, raising critically-needed funds for animals that are abused, abandoned and neglected or no longer wanted.  Cupcake parties can be held anywhere, and on any date in February.

“Last year, 103 SPCA’s and Humane Societies participated, along with 2,724 bakers across the country, raising over $650, 000 to help animals in need” says Kallie Milleman, Communications and Community Development Media Coordinator, Ontario SPCA.

National Cupcake Day originated in Australia and after much success was adopted in Canada.

“Cupcakes provide a great opportunity for animal lovers to come together to support animal welfare through delicious treats. You don’t need to be a pet owner to support your local SPCA or humane society, and you don’t need to be a baker to participate in National Cupcake Day” Says Ms. Milleman.  There are many ways to help Orangeville’s SPCA that go beyond National Cupcake Day.
