OrilliaMatters, in partnership with the SPCA Orillia Animal Centre, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.
It’s time to Bake a Difference for Animals in Need!
National Cupcake Day in support of SPCA’s, Humane Societies and rescues across Canada is back, but looking a little different for 2021. This year, to keep people safe during COVID-19, we’re asking Canadians to raise funds for animals in need in their community by baking a difference at home with our virtual cupcake decorating contest.
We’re challenging you to a bake off, so pre-heat those ovens and get ready to show off your cupcake decorating talents for the National Cupcake Day Decorating Contest, presented by Milk-Bone and Robin Hood. Visit nationalcupcakeday.ca to register, fundraise and submit a photo of your cupcake creation for a chance to win some great prizes.
Together, we can sprinkle the love for animals in need across Canada!
By taking part in National Cupcake Day and raising funds for the participating animal organization of your choice, you are providing urgently needed care and shelter for homeless animals – like Cupcake and her five babies: Sprinkles, Sugar, Pudding, Marshmallow and Candy.
Cupcake was a stray cat who was brought to a local veterinary hospital by a kind citizen who had found the cat in labour outside their home and brought her in to deliver her kittens. When the cat began having complications, her caretaker rushed her to a veterinary hospital but was unable to cover the cost of the life-saving surgery Cupcake needed.
That’s when the Ontario SPCA Orillia Animal Centre got involved to try to save Cupcake and her kittens. Despite her grave condition, Cupcake pulled through. She and her five kittens are now recovering in foster care and they are growing stronger with each passing day.
“National Cupcake Day is the sweetest day of the year, and we need your help to support vulnerable animals across Canada,” says Carol Beard, Manager, Ontario SPCA Orillia Animal Centre. “We’re challenging you to a bake off, so pre-heat those ovens and get ready to show off your cupcake decorating talents.”
