Fundraising is a piece of cake!
The launch of RSPCA WA’s sweetest fundraising event of the year will see local animal lovers fighting cruelty with cupcakes as they bake, ice, sell and share dozens of cakes to raise funds for the thousands of sick, injured and neglected animals the organisation helps annually.
Cupcake Day for the RSPCA will officially take place on 17 August and the animal welfare organisation 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.
RSPCA WA CEO David van Ooran said Cupcake Day was a fun way for animal lovers who wanted to help make a difference to raise much-needed funds for RSPCA WA’s work.
"We are appealing to all West Australians who love animals to support us and the work we do by adding a little sweetness to their lives in August and registering for this year’s Cupcake Day for the RSPCA,” Mr van Ooran said.
“Cupcake Day for the RSPCA is all about baking, eating and most importantly raising funds to help us rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals each year, and to support us continue our vital work in the community by helping us to help all creatures great and small.”
The concept for RSPCA’s annual fundraiser Cupcake Day is simple, on Monday 17 August - or in fact on any day throughout the month - participants can hold a cupcake day event at their workplace, at home or with friends - with every dollar going to help animals in need.

"Even though animal cruelty is something people often don’t want to think about, the fact is that every dollar counts when it comes to our rescue work and so we'd really appreciate people supporting us by participating in this important fundraiser,” adds Mr van Ooran.
“We think there’s no better way to help RSPCA WA than by baking, icing, selling and eating cupcakes during August, and the fact that it can be combined with a morning tea for friends and work colleagues is just the icing on the cake.”
Funds raised through Cupcake Day will directly help all creatures great and small across Western Australia. RSPCA WA needs to raise 94 per cent of its operating expenses, as only 6 per cent is covered by a grant from the State Government.
