With less than two weeks until the day, fundraising for RSPCA Cupcake Day is in full swing, with over $80,000 raised nationwide.
ACT fundraising is currently just over $4,000.
As RSPCA ACT receives just 15% of its funding from the government, they need your cupcakes to raise much needed funds to fight animal cruelty.
“Anyone can get involved; you don’t have to be a skilled baker! It’s all about having fun and doing it for a great cause” said RSPCA ACT CEO Tammy Ven Dange.
Sunrise host Natalie Barr is the latest high profile name to come to the party, offering up a delicious buttercake recipe.
Over the last few years Natalie’s gradually adopted an eight year old Samoyd, Madonna, from good friends. “They live in a unit so they bring her to our yard and she loves our noisy boy household. We take her to the boys' footy games every weekend and she's a hit, so lovely and well mannered,” she explained.
Madonna joins 10 year old moggie, Flash, in the Barr household.
The power of a cupcake:
• $30 shelters and cares for a neglected dog
• $50 heats a kennel during the cold winter months
• $100 desexes a kitten awaiting adoption
• $240 provides vaccinations for a litter of puppies
• $350 keeps an RSPCA ACT Inspector on the road fighting animal cruelty.
