Do you love animals as much as we do? We have three dogs who may have become shelter dogs had we not taken them in from the owners who could no longer take care of them at the time. We do a lot for our pets from making sure they are healthy to making sure they are entertained and loved. We become more than pet owners, we become family. 

Unfortunately we hear story after story about lost, unwanted or abused animals coming in to animal shelters on a daily basis. The staff who run these shelters can only give these animals so much love and support, they really do need forever homes. Pets like dogs and cats have one goal in life and that is to love and be loved by their owners. Having three dogs myself, you can't tell me otherwise. 

I love my pets and I also love baking, that's why today I am sharing with you, a simple way you can help animals and bake up everybodys favourite sweet treat, cupcakes for National Cupcake Day!
