No time for baking? Support a local bakery by purchasing a cupcake, then go online to to make a donation to your local participating SPCA, humane society or rescue group. It’s a small gesture with a big impact.

“The calories don’t count when you make a donation to support animals in need,” says Tracy McElman, Provincial Manager, Community Programming & Animal Centre Services, Ontario SPCA and Humane Society. “This is the 10th anniversary of National Cupcake Day and we hope you’ll join us by indulging in a sweet treat to help animals.”

The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society

The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society is a registered charity, established in 1873. The Society and its network of communities facilitate and provide for province-wide leadership on matters relating to the prevention of cruelty to animals and the promotion of animal well-being. Offering a variety of mission-based programs, including community-based sheltering, animal wellness services, provincial animal transfers, shelter health & wellness, high-volume spay/neuter services, animal rescue, animal advocacy, Indigenous partnership programs and humane education, the Ontario SPCA is Ontario’s animal charity.

The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society Provincial Office sits on the traditional territory of the Wendat, the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Mississaugas of Scugog, Hiawatha and Alderville First Nations and the Métis Nation. This territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. The treaties that were signed for this particular parcel of land are collectively referred to as the Williams Treaties of 1923.
