posted by The Daily Fluff August 1, 2018 0 comments

The RSPCA Cupcake Day is back on Monday 20th August! So, put your apron on and get out your mixing spoon to raise money for RSPCA animals all over the country!

Cupcake Day is an initiative started by the RSPCA to raise funds for animals in need. The RSPCA have 135,000 animals come through their shelter doors each year. Without the generosity and dedication of the public, many of these animals wouldn’t be able to receive the help they need.

If you choose to register as a Cupcake Day host, you can plan your event however you like. You could hold a bake sale at your local school, a bake-off in your workplace, or have a baking party with friends – it’s completely up to you! The RSPCA will send you an exclusive host kit when you register with everything you need to host an amazing Cupcake Day. This includes all the essentials, including a host guide, pop-up donation box, decorative bunting and posters!

So, whether you’re devouring doughnuts, brownies, cookies or traditional cupcakes, your delicious treats will be raising money to help the incredible RSPCA team rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals in need all over the country.

Get baking and host your own Cupcake Day any time in August. Your colleagues, schoolmates or family and friends will love participating, and you’ll be supporting a great cause!

If you’re getting involved on the day, make sure you tag #RSPCACupcakeDay and #RSPCABakeAChange on Instagram to help raise awareness and for your chance to be featured on the RSPCA page.

The best dog-friendly cafés in Melbourne

posted by The Daily Fluff July 4, 2018 0 comments

Is there anything better than starting your weekend off with some quality time in the company of your furry friend? We didn’t think so! Many cafés in Melbourne aren’t pooch friendly though…sad face. We’ve put together a list of some cafés that let those with two legs…and four legs in for a coffee!

Serotonin Eatery – 52 Madden Grove, Burnley

The courtyard of this bright little café is dog friendly, so you can bring your pooch to brunch! Albeit, the courtyard is quite small so it’s best suited for small-medium sized pups. Serotonin do give you the option of taking a picnic basket to the park across the road though, so on a sunny day it’d be a perfect spot for your furry friend!

The Dog Café – 120 Boronia Road, Boronia

This Boronia café is a haven for furry friends and their hoomans. They’ve got coffee for the two-legged creatures and puppacinos for the four-legged. You can even spoil your furbabies with a treat or two – they’ve got donuts, cake pops and more! They even host doggie birthday parties!

Patch Café – 1/32 Bendigo Street, Richmond

Patch is a paleo inspired café serving locally sourced foods to the health conscious. It’s located in a transformed warehouse space in Richmond and is open 7 days a week. Pet owners will be delighted to know that the undercover outdoor area is pet friendly!

The Farm Café – 18 St Heliers Street, Abbotsford

If you’ve got little ones, a visit here would be the perfect day out as the café is located in the gorgeous surrounds of the Collingwood Children’s Farm! The café loves having furry visitors – they even have an Instagram account dedicated to dogs at the farm! Check it out! – https://www.instagram.com/dogsofthefarmcafe/

Cornerstone & Co. – 75 Ludstone Street, Hampton

Cornerstone & Co. is a Japanese Italian fusion café located in the leafy back streets of Hampton. Pups are welcome in the cosy courtyard out the back. There’s even heaters to keep everyone warm!
