Fighting factory farming -- with puppies and cupcakes!

These savvy Sydney uni students know how to get the attention of caring passers-by... with gorgeous puppies and delicious cruelty-free cupcakes!

And what better way to increase awareness of this problem than handing out flyers and raising funds for the Make it Possible campaign, helped by sweet cupcakes and equally sweet puppies?

Here are some inspiring young people from University of Sydney Animal Welfare Society (AWS) helping to Make it Possible. They were ably assisted by two puppies called Oddish and Togepi (who are up for adoption!):



Cruelty-free cupcakes, flyers and smiles all round at the AWS campus bake sale.
