Today is National Cupcake Day and the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society is asking area residents to do something sweet to help animals in need in the community.
Presented by Milk-Bone and Robin Hood, National Cupcake Day is organized by the Ontario SPCA in support of participating SPCAs, humane societies and rescue groups across Canada. By taking part in National Cupcake Day, people can help provide urgently needed care and shelter for animals waiting to find a loving home.
