Saskatchewan SPCA supporters are invited to register today at and start planning their Cupcake Day party. Simply plan to supply some delicious treats and then invite your co-workers, friends, and family to attend in exchange for a donation to the Saskatchewan SPCA. Your Cupcake Day party can be held at your workplace, home, school or local community centre – anywhere you think people will enjoy a treat! It’s a super fun and easy way to “bake a difference” for animal welfare in your community.

Within 10 business days of registration, participants will be mailed their official Cupcake Day Host Kit containing a fundraising guide, donation box, balloons, a poster and other stuff needed to host a successful event. The last day for online registration is Monday, February 22.

National Cupcake Day is the first-ever, Canada-wide event to support local shelters, SPCAs, and Humane Societies. The event, now in its fourth year in Canada, has a long successful history in other countries, namely in Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.

2016 is the first year that the Saskatchewan SPCA will be participating in this national event. “We’re excited to be part of such a fantastic program. National Cupcake Day has been a tremendous success, both in terms of raising awareness and funds for a great number of SPCAs and Humane Societies across Canada and around the world. The Saskatchewan SPCA is proud to be involved,” said Frances Wach, the Saskatchewan SPCA’s Executive Director. Proceeds raised through National Cup Cake Day will be used to fund programs currently being developed by the Saskatchewan SPCA, including the Animal Rescue Certification Program and the Interpersonal Violence and Animal Abuse Project.
