Jinky Accheni and her adorable rabbit Gandalf are getting ready for RSPCA Victoria’s sweetest fundraiser of the year.

Animal lovers are encouraged to share cakes and sweet treats any day throughout August, especially for Cupcake Day on August 21, in return for a donation to the animal welfare charity.

All money raised through the sale of baked goods and events goes towards helping animals in need.

RSPCA Victoria chief executive Liz Walker said the fundraiser was an opportunity for friends, family, work mates and social groups to get together while raising money to help the organisation rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals.

“Each year, we help thousands of animals and we rely on the generosity of our fundraisers to continue our vital work,” Dr Walker said.

“Most people are happy to help a good cause, and Cupcake Day events are really good fun while playing a serious role in helping end cruelty to all animals.”

Anyone who registers as a Cupcake Day host receives a free host kit with host guide, pop-up donation box, decorative bunting, promotional posters and a recipe book that even includes pup-friendly cupcakes.
