Monday February 26th is National Cupcake Day - a date set aside for businesses and community members to help support their local SPCA’s and Humane Societies by hosting a bake sale, with proceeds supporting their local animal shelter. The Swift Current SPCA will be participating in this year’s event.

“We are encouraging schools, individuals, businesses and community groups in Swift Current and the southwest to get on board with Cupcake Day this year,” says SPCA Development Officer Teresa Cole.
Bake (or buy) cupcakes or any of your favourite sweet treats and sell them to your co-workers, classmates, clients or the public at whatever price you choose. 

Proceeds can then be donated to the Swift Current SPCA by mail at Box 1163, Swift Current, S9H 3X3 or dropped off the SPCA Shelter at 2101 Knight Crescent (off #4 Highway South) or the SPCA Book Store at 37 1st Ave NE.
Pre-registration of your Cupcake Day event is not required but Cole says they would love to know in advance who plans to participate. “We like to try to get the word out on our participating locations through social and traditional media so folks know where they can buy a cupcake that day and we are happy to help promote.”

Groups or individuals who would like to get involved or who would like more information can contact Cole at 306-773-1292 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Some of the locations participating on the 26th in Swift Current will be:  Pet Valu, New Family Chiropractic Clinic, Standard Motors, Altus Geomatics, Canadian Mental Health Association, WW Smith Insurance, RBC, and the SPCA Bookstore.  In addition, there will be a sale at the Grand Coteau in Shaunavon on Feb. 27.
For those who can’t host a sale or get out to buy treats on the 26th, the SPCA will also be holding a pre-sale of cupcakes at  the Swift Current Mall Centre Court on Saturday Feb. 24th from 12-5 p.m. or while supplies last.
The Swift Current SPCA is a local volunteer-directed registered charity which receives no provincial or federal funding, is not affiliated with nor funded by the Saskatchewan SPCA. It looks to raise about 80% of its $300,000 annual operating budget from the community each year. It serves approximately 300- 350 domestic pets (cats and dogs) annually, operating 24/7 – 365 day a year no-kill shelter services with a high standard of health safety. It also provides required medical services including a spay/neuter program, foster and adoption services, pound care and licensing services for the City of Swift Current, and a lost and found registry and microchipping program to help reunite strays with owners. The SPCA has operated animal shelter services in Swift Current since 1973.
