How to bake 'pupcakes'Get out your apron, measuring spoons, and mixing bowls – it’s that time of year again! The sweetest day of the year is almost here: National Cupcake Day™ for SPCAs and Humane Societies is coming up on Monday, Feb. 25 and you’re invited to help “bake” a difference for animals in need by hosting a Cupcake Day Party for your animal-loving friends anytime throughout January or February.

The seventh annual National Cupcake Day is the most delicious way to show your support for animals in need!

You can register today (it’s free) and start planning your own Cupcake Day party in support of our furry friends who have been abused, abandoned, or are in need of new homes.

All you have to do is whip up (or buy) some delicious treats (for pets or humans), and invite your co-workers, friends and family to attend in exchange for a donation to your local SPCA or Humane Society.

Here are some dog-friendly “pup-cake” recipes to get your baking juices flowing:

1. Treat your pup with these dog-friendly Peanut Butter Pup-Cakes, by Damn Delicious, filled with pumpkin, applesauce and carrots topped with a peanut butter frosting!

2. Spoil the special pooch in your life with this Apple Cheddar Dog Cupcake recipe, by Food Fanatic.

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift. I am so happy there are folks like you to care for those who can’t help themselves.  My family and I have had animals all our lives and know what a comfort they are.  Thank you SPCA.
