You might have to think a bit to make the connection.  The Timmins and District Humane Society says nothing goes together better with a cute pet than a cute cupcake.

Executive director Alicia Santamaria says a fundraising cupcake sale is part of a pet adoption this weekend at the Pet Valu stores in town and Body Shop at tIMMINS Square.

“The cupcake component is all part of National Cupcake Day.  It’s basically a campaign that was put together by the Ontario SPCA,” Santamaria explains. “We’re going to have a couple animals at the Pet Valu locations as part of the adoption even on the weekend, and we’ll have a lot of really fun and cute cupcakes for sale as well.”

Later in the month, the Humane Society is planning a “Give Your Heart to a Pet” campaign.
