This Satuday, the Ontario SPCA Sudbury and District Animal Centre hosted their first National Cupcake Day party of 2019.
National Cupcake Day was introduced to support local shelters, SPCAs and Humane Societies across Canada, and has raised $3.15 million to date. While National Cupcake Day is Feb. 25, anyone interested in hosting their own fundraiser can do so anywhere and on any date during January or February.
The Sudbury SPCA plans to host a number of National Cupcake Day parties throughout the coming month, to give attendees the opportuntiy to fall in love with eligible rescues and support the shelter by enjoying some sweet, homemade treats.
Proceeds from National Cupcake Day parties help provide care for animals within the Greater Sudbury area and from communities across Northern Ontario, said Sudbury SPCA staff member, Alicia Irwin. "The funds help in all aspects of the organization so we can give [animals] the critical care they need, especially in emergency situations."
In addition to being a fundraiser for the local animal shelter, National Cupcake Day parties are an opportunity to find animals their 'fur'ever home - and that's just what happened.
Admittedly, Savanah Miller knew she would fall in love when she attended Sudbury SPCA's National Cupcake Day because as she said, she falls in love with every cat she meets. This did nothing to stifle the young cat mom's excitement, as she prepared to bring home a sister for their family cat, Pebbles.
The Ontario SPCA Sudbury and District Animal Centre currently houses cats, dogs, guinea pigs and bunnies, which can be viewed online or in person. See if adoption is right for you by visiting Sudbury.ontariospca.ca.
