Do you love dogs and want to make a difference for rescue dogs being cared for by animal welfare agencies across Canada? National Cupcake Day for SPCAs and Humane Societies is on Monday, February 29, 2016. It’s a day to bake or buy cupcakes for friends, family or co-workers and save the lives of dogs in need.


Whether you are a natural Betty Crocker in the kitchen or prefer to shop for cupcakes, getting into the spirit is all that matters. Rescue dogs rock -they understand they have a second chance at life and repay you with endless love. Since adopting my pug Kilo from Homeward Bound Rescue, I’ve seen first hand the difference adopting a rescue makes in their life and yours. I’m grateful to have him every day and want to extend that opportunity to every dog waiting for its forever home. That’s why I’m joining the mission on February 29th and baking some sweet treats.

Join the mission to fight cruelty with cupcakes and “bake” a difference for animals!

Why not bake cupcakes for your dog? In moderation, they can be great for on the go snacks for your dog, they crumble well for training and make a healthy treat alternative depending on the ingredients.

I occasionally bake them and other things for Kilo the Pug and he loves them! He even “helps out” in the kitchen LOL.
