SPCA, Macy’s Open Window Into Adoption World

Posted: Nov. 15, 2013, 12:55 p.m. EST


How much is that doggie or kitty in the window? It could be free as part of the 27th annual Holiday Windows, a pet adoption and fundraising event sponsored by the San Francisco SPCA and Macy’s department store.

Adoptable cats and dogs will be showcased in Macy’s storefront windows at the corner of Stockton and O’Farrell streets on San Francisco’s Union Square. The event runs from Nov. 22 through Jan. 5.

Nearly 300 animals found homes during the 2012 event, during which passers-by contributed $80,000 to support SF SPCA programs.

"The Windows have become a true holiday tradition in San Francisco,” said Jason Walthall, SF SPCA co-president. "This event allows us to find homes for animals in need while also educating the public about animal welfare issues that impact San Francisco.”

Pulling designer clothing from display windows in favor of homeless cats and dogs is a welcome trade-off for Macy’s.

"Every year there is a building excitement in our store in the weeks before we welcome the puppies and kittens into the windows,” said Rise Hixson, visual manager at Macy’s Union Square. "I fall in love with at least one pet every year. It’s easily my favorite window display because of the joy it brings to so many.”

Adult cats displayed as part of Holiday Windows are free to adopt. Other animals are available at prices ranging from $100 to $250, but the fee is waived when the adoption occurs on a weekday at the SF SPCA Adoption Center, 250 Florida St.
