Cupcake Day 2017
Fight animal cruelty with cupcakes! The RSPCA Cupcake Day for 2017 gathers bakers from across the nation to make a stand for animal welfare. Absolutely 100 per cent of funds raised through your baking efforts will help rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home the 135,000 animals that come through RSPCA shelters every year.
Cupcake Day is officially on Monday 21 August so you better get your cake on if you want to join!
Every dollar you raise will change the lives of animals in need.
A little about the RSPCA
The RSPCA receives less than two per cent of our funding from the government, so we rely on the generosity of people like you. The money you raise will rescue animals from cruelty and prepare them for their forever homes, by providing shelter, nourishment, veterinary treatment and rehabilitation.
The RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is a non-government charity providing animal care and protection services. They run 40 shelters and employ around 1,000 staff and company mission is to prevent animal cruelty through actively promoting their care and protection. To achieve this, they work to enforce animal cruelty laws, prompt new legislation and prosecute those who harm them. Further to this they also operate animal care and adoption facilities to care for the abandoned, surrendered and injured.
The money raised from Cupcake Day 2017 will rescue animals from cruelty and prepare them for their forever homes, by providing shelter, nourishment, veterinary treatment and rehabilitation.
