If you’re looking for a healthy spin to the typical cupcake recipe – look no further! These delicious chocolate vanilla “cream” filled cupcakes are not just vegan, they’re also raw! Made with oats, fruits and nuts, this unique recipe allows you to forego the carbs and processing to make a batch of tasty treats that are kind to our digestive tracts (and waistlines).

So if you’ve been looking for a recipe to make and sell for this year’s Cupcake Day on February 16th – one that will satisfy both your sweet tooth and your New Year’s health resolutions – give this tasty concoction (care of by Emily from This Ransom Vegan Life) a try!

The Animals: Oli (Adopted!) & Gypsy

Sometimes when an animal comes through our doors they’re vaccinated, already altered, hit the adoption room floor and are placed in a new home in a matter of days!

Oli 17294497gypsy 19942831But in other cases the turn-around isn’t quite so fast. For some cats and dogs their length of stay may go from 10 days to 20 to 30 or more! Cats like Oli, who arrived at the Society in September of 2012, and dogs like Gypsy, who has been with us since May, will be here as long as it takes for us to find them a good home.

In an effort to help these animals find placement faster we do many promotions both online and off to give our long-term residents a bit more attention.

By participating in events like Cupcake Day – you too can help these animals! By raising funds that can then be used to highlight their awesomeness and adopt-ability, you’ll play a role in the the re-homing of great animals like Oli and Gypsy.
