Former Mayor Willie Brown and 49ers running back LaMichael James will unveil the 26th Annual San Francisco SPCA Holiday Windows at 5:00pm today!
Each year the SF SPCA fills Macy's holiday windows with adoptable animals, and last year was the most successful yet: more than 325 animals found homes and $80,000 raised.
Come on out to Macy's Union Square, on the corner of Stockton and O'Farrell to start the holiday season with a grrrrrr and a purrrrrr.
"We are grateful to be partnering with Macy's again this year" said Jason Walthall, SF SPCA Co-President. "Holiday Windows provides us with a unique opportunity to help animals in need. The event not only helps homeless animals find new families, but it also raises awareness about important animal welfare issues such as pet overpopulation and homelessness."
Iconic San Francisco neighborhoods provide the theme for this year's Windows.
Each holiday window will be equipped with a video camera that streams images to sfspca.org/holiday, so you can watch the kittens and puppies from your computer. The streaming video is generously supported by KSFO Radio. The Windows will remain open through January 1.
Want to volunteer this season? The SF SPCA needs volunteers to help spread the holiday cheer at Windows by greeting the public, collecting donations, and directing visitors to the SF SPCA pop-up adoption center inside Macy's. The 2-hour shifts do not require special training. Groups are welcome, and children are invited to volunteer alongside their parents. For details or to sign up, visit sfspca.org/holiday-volunteer or call 415-554-3008.
On December 1, Family Fun Day, Macy's will host a holiday cookie decorating workshop for kids from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Kids Department, Level 5. Kids will decorate animal-shaped cookies that they can take home and enjoy. Radio Disney will also be at the event with a DJ, games, holiday decorating station, and giveaways.
On December 14, National Believe Day, Macy's will be matching all donations collected outside the Holiday Windows, up to $1,000.
Can't make it to Union Square? For those who can't make it to Macy’s, the SF SPCA will be waiving the adoption fee on adult animals adopted from the permanent SF SPCA Adoption Center at 250 Florida Street, November 16 - January 1.
