Cupcake Day for the RSPCA: animal lovers urged to get baking

HANNAH Friend is firing up the oven for a good cause this August as she prepares to throw her support behind Cupcake Day for the RSPCA.

Miss Friend will be carefully supervised by rescue cat Fifi, a one-year-old tawny Abyssinian with a raging sweet tooth.

“I do enjoy a bit of baking, which is good because Fifi is an absolute cake-aholic,” she said.

“You can’t eat anything sweet around her – she will not leave you alone. I am pretty sure she licked every cupcake we prepared for the photo shoot.”

The Melville resident promised to keep Fifi’s passion for quality control in check when she prepares a big batch of sweet treats for the RSPCA’s official Cupcake Day on Monday, August 15.

“I’ll be selling the cupcakes out of my workplace, Live! Chiropractic in Applecross,” Miss Friend said.

“They’ll be available from 1pm on the Monday and our clients or anyone in the area is more than welcome to come along, make a donation and grab a cupcake.”

The RSPCA is calling on all West Australian animal lovers to shake off their aprons and grease their cupcake trays to help provide vital welfare services for animals across the state.

The Cupcake Day for RSCPA concept is simple – during the month of August, participants hold a cupcake day event at their workplace, at home or with friends, with every dollar raised going to help animals in need.

Miss Friend, who also owns a golden spoodle named Sunni, said she had decided to participate in the fundraiser because of the joy that rescue animals had brought to her and her mates.

“I have lots of close friends with rescue dogs and they have such lovely temperaments,” she said.

“The RSPCA have animal trainers that start the house training process for you and you just carry it on.

“All of the animals come very well-behaved, they just need some extra TLC when they are first re-homed.”
