Every holiday season, The San Francisco SPCA holds its Holiday Windows Adoption Program. People come from all over the city, state, country and world to see the amazing window displays that Macy's creates for our special kitties. The window displays draw large crowds and donations for our cats, in a time when they so desperately need someone to provide care for them. Visit Macy's for the holidays to give homeless cats and dogs at the San Francisco SPCA a chance to "believe" as they find warm and loving homes. Holiday shoppers can catch a glimpse of some of San Francisco's cutest animals in the Macy's windows at Stockton and O'Farrell Street from November 20, 2009 through January 3, 2010.
In a sense, it's like we have created a satellite animal shelter right inside Macy's Union Square. It's a great way to give our homeless cats the exposure and to showcase our programs and mission to an audience that may not know all the amazing services that the SF/ SPCA provides.
The window displays are amazing!!! All of the "creature" comforts are provided for our companions, including temperature control, hidden litter boxes and comfortable spots for those quick catnaps. Every adoptable animal has been medically screened, vaccinated, microchipped and spayed or neutered just like if you adopted them from our shelter. Also, each animal will come with a 30-day medical assistance plan at the SF/SPCA infirmary, plus a gift bag filled with samples, treats and valuable certificates from sponsor partners of The SF/SPCA and Macy's.
The SPCA is also seeking volunteers for the windows. Volunteers serve as a vital component to all aspects of the event's success, from meeting and greeting the public and answering their questions to collecting donations, and ultimately helping the animals get adopted. Those interested in signing up to volunteer are encouraged to sign up at http://www.sfspca.org/support/volunteer.
The SF/SPCA thanks Macy's for their generous sponsorship, now in its eighth year, on behalf of homeless cats and dogs.
