With over 29 million registered pets, Australia has one of the highest pet ownership rates in the world – and as these numbers increase with people searching for furry friends during COVID, it’s no surprise that RSPCA Cupcake Day is hitting home for those with little canine and feline sidekicks.

Ingenia Rental Eight Mile Plains residents came together on RSPCA Cupcake Day to raise awareness and funds for the RSPCA. 

Community Manager Ona Berghan -Wylie said that many of the residents in the community were very passionate about supporting the RSPCA’s cause to protect abandoned and abused animals.

“The furry and feathered residents of our community are more than just pets, they’re like family, which is why it means a lot to everyone to get involved in RSPCA Cupcake Day.

“Their pets bring them love, companionship and purpose in life which can play a significant part in promoting positive impacts to the pet owners.”

“Having pets around is very therapeutic and a great way for our residents to maintain good mental health, especially during these unprecedent times – they’ve been more important than ever.”

Ingenia Rental – Eight Mile Plains residents supported the cause by hosting a morning tea, raising almost $150, all in aid of the mistreated, abandoned and abused animals protected by the RSPCA.
