Bake Sale for the SPCA!

Earlier this month, our local police busted a local dog fighting ring.  They found 80 dogs!!!  Here is the awful story if you would like to read it.

Our local SPCA took in these animals at a makeshift shelter.  Needless to say, they needed help!  The community really pulled together and helped out.  People started volunteering and donating goods and money.

I wanted to help as well.  I called my boss and asked her if I could set up a donation bin at work.  She was all for it!  She called me back and suggested we also hold a bake sale to raise funds.  I thought it was a great idea!

We made a flyer and hung up a sign.  Our crew volunteered to help make some treats.  I would like to say a big thank you to Jessica, Angela, Rick, and Christina for helping out by baking! Christina and her daughters went the extra mile and decorated some AMAZING cakes and cupcakes!  They looked absolutely awesome!

Cooper was my sidekick today.  He was a great boy.  He sat by me, greeted the customers, and gave lots of kisses.  He was the perfect gentleman!

We ended up raising about $150 today.  One man didn't even take any treats as he handed me twenty-five dollars.  He simply said that he was a proud pit bull owner.  I thought that was awesome!  Another little girl gave her allowance of four dollars.  That about made me cry!  I love when good people do great things!  I am not sure if $150 is normal for bake sales, but I am proud of it!  I think every bit will go to good use.

We also collected donations over the past week.  My boss, Jessica, has some amazing in-laws!  They rounded up TONS of donations for the shelter.  These photos speak volumes about how much the community loves animals.  I cannot wait to drop off these goodies on Monday!

Thank you to everyone that helped!  It was a great day!  If you would like to help or make a donation, please visit our local SPCA's website.

As always, please consider adopting your next best friend from your local shelter or rescue group.  You most certainly won't regret it!

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. I love what you do! That is so nice to hear that there is a community out there ready to pitch in all together and help these poor dogs!

    I can't understand how can some human beings can be so cruel, and fight dogs? It's crazy!!

    1. Thank you, Francesca!!!

      I thoroughly agree! I cannot believe how people can treat animals on such an awful manner. They are family members and deserve love and care. I am so glad our community has rallied around these dogs. I truly hope they all get the loving home they very much deserve.
