Wednesday is a gorgeous
big girl, but don't let her
size fool you as she walks
very daintily and curls up
into the tiniest ball.
Mario is very well
mannered and has
definitely had training.
He will possibly need
an operation to correct
his left rear patella.
SPCA Cupcake Day Appeal

Find the SPCA on facebook
SPCA Cupcake Day (NZ)
How it works
Cupcake Day for the SPCA is a fun,
community-driven annual fundraiser for the
SPCA. Every year they rely heavily on their
wonderful supporters to help make Cupcake
Day a success. If you think you ve got what it
takes to be a Cupcake King or Queen for the
SPCA, read on.
1. Register to become a Cupcake Cook.
You can register to participate in Cupcake Day
as an Individual, Team, or School up until
Sunday, August 25. If you are planning to
participate as a team, only one member of the
team needs to register. Registration is easy, will
only take a couple of minutes, and will give you
access to the special Members Only sections of
the website. You will need to login with your
username and nominated password to access
these sections. www.spcacupcakeday.co.nz
2. Download your Cupcake Kit.
Once your registration is successful, you will
receive an email confirming all the details
submitted with your registration, along with
instructions on how to download all the
important things you need, such as Cupcake
Day posters and Cupcake Cook stickers. There
will also be a link to the New Zealand Food
Safety Authority s Food Safety Tips, which all
Cupcake Cooks are strongly encouraged to read
at least once. It s also a good idea to print it out
and keep it on hand.
3. Tell your friends!
In order to sell as many cupcakes as possible,
you need to tell as many people as possible!
Shout it from the rooftops, do a small speech
during school assembly or bring it up in your
next staff meeting, or just plaster the Cupcake
Day poster all over your school, workplace or
community centre. You could also create an
event on Facebook and invite your friends.
4. Bake, bake, bake!
Bake up a cupcake storm in time for Cupcake
Day! (Don t forget to use cage-free eggs!) On
the day, sell your scrumptious cupcakes to
everyone you know and raise money for your
SPCA. Don t forget to wear your special
Cupcake Cook sticker -- this identifies you as an
official fundraiser for the SPCA.
5. Count it up and send it in.
Once you ve sold your cupcakes, count up the
money you raised and send it back to the SPCA.
A form will be available on the website which
will let you securely return your funds raised via
credit card or bank transfer. All Cupcake funds
will be collated at SPCA National Support
Office and redistributed to Cupcake Cooks
local SPCAs in one bulk lot to simplify the
accounting process. The online reconciliation
form will be accessible in the weeks leading up
to Cupcake Day.
6. Print out your Certificate of Participation.
Once your Cupcake Day funds have been
received, the SPCA will email you a thank-you
letter and a link to a beautiful Cupcake Day
Certificate of Participation that you can print
out and fill in for yourself and any helpers you
may have had. Doing things electronically
means money is saved on printing and postage
fees, which means more of the money you raise
goes to help the animals.
7. You re done!
Congratulations Cupcake Kings and Queens!
Give yourself a great big pat on the back, and
lots of hugs from the animals -- thank you for
supporting your SPCA and helping them
continue their important work in your

Important food safety tips
Cupcake Day should be a safe, fun event for all
involved. It s a day when thousands of people across
New Zealand will be enjoying cupcakes and sweet
treats in support of the SPCA, so it s really important
that all Cupcake Cooks keep basic food hygiene
standards in mind when preparing cupcakes. The
Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) have put
together a few food safety tips for Cupcake Cooks to
Make sure you have clean hands, surfaces and
equipment when preparing ingredients and
handling the finished product. Whilst dog is
man s best friend, it s best to shut your pup
out of the kitchen while you re baking. (This
goes for other pets too!)
Transport food in clean containers to prevent
dirt and bugs from getting into it, and to keep
it in tip-top condition for your customers.
Make a note of what s in the food you re selling, so
you can tell customers who ask. Remember that
for some people, eating a food they are allergic to
can be life-threatening, so it s important that the
information you give them is accurate. Common
allergenics found in cupcakes include nuts, egg,
gluten and dairy.

Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI s) Food Safety
If you re busy on Monday 26 August you can hold your
Cupcake Day event on another day
You may hold your own Cupcake Day event on any day that suits you best; just remember to send your
funds raised in to the SPCA by the deadline, which is 5pm, Friday 6 September. Sending your funds in
by the deadline will keep you in the running for their Most Money Raised competition, and will help
them to keep an accurate tally of how much has been raised.

Dog Rescue Dunedin
Dog Rescue Dunedin is a registered charitable
trust which exists to take in dogs that are
unclaimed in the DCC Pound. We rescue and
foster them until their forever homes are found. If
you wish to adopt, we will do a property
inspection and then the dog will have a week's
trial at your place. Each dog has been registered,
vaccinated, wormed, health checked and desexed
(or will be desexed as soon as possible). We ask
adopters for a donation of $230 towards costs.
