DONNING fuzzy doggie ears and baking 13 dozen cupcakes was all part of John Warrell's plan to raise funds for the RSPCA's Cupcake Day.

A passionate supporter of animal welfare, Mr Warrell said the annual event was a terrific opportunity for residents to support the RSPCA and raise awareness of the work it does.

After setting up his stall at the Clarence River Tourism premises on Saturday, Mr Warrell was barking with delight after every mouth-watering cupcake was sold before noon.

He said he received fantastic support from the community and added he would have a selection of delicious delights for Cupcake Day in 2013.

"I am a member of the RSPCA, I've seen the achievements they make in the community and I am proud to do something to support them," he said.

Mr Warrell raised $644 from selling cupcakes on Saturday. An avid animal lover, he has a pet ferret, named Sakhmet after an Egyptian goddess.
