Macy’s Holiday Windows Event Aims to Find Shelter Animals Homes
The San Francisco SPCA will begin featuring adoptable dogs and cats on Friday, Nov. 19 at Macy’s in San Francisco’s Union Square. The event, part of the 24th annual Macy’s Holiday Windows, will run through Sunday, Jan. 2.
The pet display has been a winter staple since 1987, according to SF SPCA. During that time, more than 2,000 animals have been adopted and $250,000 has been raised to support the SF SPCA’s hospital, shelter and community initiatives. This year, the goal is to find homes for 320 animals. Almost 300 were adopted last year as part of the event.
“The Macy’s Holiday Windows featuring adoptable animals from the SF SPCA has become synonymous with the holidays among San Franciscans and has been an enormous boon to our efforts to bring comfort to the many adorable animals we care for through donations and adoptions,” said Jennifer Scarlett, DVM, interim co-president of SF SPCA. “Through this wonderful partnership with Macy’s, I hope we inspire visitors to open their hearts and their homes to these precious cats and dogs.”
The dogs and cats will be in the Macy’s Windows everyday during the holidays, except Thanksgiving and Christmas Days when the store is closed. The environment is temperature-controlled and has comfortable spots for quick catnaps, according to SF SPCA. Live webcam footage will be available on the SPCA's website beginning Nov. 19.
All adoptable animals will be medically screened, vaccinated, microchipped and spayed/neutered. Each animal will also come with a 30-day medical assistance plan. <HOME>
