Cook-up to aid animals
Thursday, 12th August, 2010
Locals are being asked to dig deep into their pantry to help the animals at the local RSPCA.
The RSPCA will be holding its annual cupcake day on Monday where locals can donate cup cake ingredients or bake cup cakes for the shelter to sell on the day.
Shelter manager Merridy Wall says the money raised will go towards improving facilities at the animal refuge.
Ms Wall said new toys, beds, and equipment were just some of the things that will be purchased with the money.
Organisations are welcome to hold their own stall, and all money can be dropped in to the shelter.
Donations of cake mixes and ingredients can be left at the shelter by Friday, and donations of cup cakes can be made on the day.
The shelter asked that if eggs were to be donated, they must come from cage-free farms.
Ms Wall said their were also many animals still looking for a loving home to go to.
A three-month-old brown kelpie named Steele is just one of the many wormed and vaccinated animals at the RSPCA.
"Obedience is necessary for a dog like this," she said.
Kelpies' enjoy walks and exercise, so an owner with the time to dedicate to the animal is important.
