The Orangeville and District SPCA will kick off National Cupcake Day to help local animals in need of attention and a home.

National Cupcake Day is observed by SPCAs and Humane Societies across the country and will take place on Monday, February 24. 

The local SPCA is asking people to do something sweet for vulnerable animals in the community by hosting a cupcake party.

The concept is simple. Parties can be held anywhere and on any date in January or February.

Just invite your co-workers, friends, family and neighbours to attend your party in exchange for a donation to the Ontario SPCA Orangeville and District Animal Centre. 

“National Cupcake Day is the sweetest day of the year and we’re challenging everyone who cares about animals to get involved,” said Jennifer Yapa, manager of the local animal shelter. “By getting involved and hosting a party of making a donation, you will be changing the life of vulnerable animals locally by raising critically need funds.”

If you can’t get everyone together, you can still collect funds on-line and get cupcakes to your donors at your convenience or send a virtual cupcake with a heartfelt ‘thank-you.’

National Cupcake Day is a coordinated Canadian event to support local shelters, SPCAs and Humane Societies.

Proceeds from National Cupcake Day help give animals in need a second chance.

To date, the campaign has raised $3.5 million.
