THERE were plenty of sweet tooths around the RSPCA as cake lovers converged to help raise funds for the thousands of unwanted, neglected or lost animals who rely on the service each year.

This year, RSPCA Queensland was proud to announce it had more than 2000 fundraisers for the event celebrated on August 19.

RSPCA Queensland events manager Dana Ryan was pleased with the support from the local community.

"We are continually amazed by the community support to help our animals," she said.

"Especially all of the creativity and hard work that our fundraisers have shown this year.

"We love seeing our supporters whipping up sweet treats in the office or home.

"It was great fun for everyone."

If you haven't had the chance to host your own Cupcake Day, there is still time.

You can host your own event right up until the end of September.

All funds raised are helping pets who are looking for a new home to get a second chance.
