How Much is that Doggie in the Window?


Nothing.


The San Francisco SPCA & Macy's join together every holiday season to give homeless dogs and cats a warm and loving home. Holiday shoppers come from all over the world to see the amazing window displays that Macy's creates for these precious animals.

I used to get really sad watching hundreds of people glaring at these little animals and taking photos. Then I spoke with my neighbor who has been volunteering this year. She said that over 200 animals have already been adopted.

All cats and dogs up for adoption have been medically screened, vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed or neutered. SPCA representatives are at Macy’s while the pets are on display to answer questions from anyone interested in pet adoption.



Here is a link to view the adoptable cats and dogs from three live webcams. Sooo cute!

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 through January 3, 2010.

And, if you can't make it, give the best holiday gift by donating to the SPCA here, or the local San Francisco shelter that puts the Macy's window together here.

What a great idea, Lynn.
As long as they are looked after in the windows, and, I'm sure they are, then it's a great way to get these animals a good home. XXXX

Jacqueline, they have totally climate controlled rooms...the best care ever! I was just watching the webcam and one of the SPCA workers was in there cleaning up some little accidents. Oh, I am so tempted to get Vito a sister!

Great post! The SF/SPCA windows are great...

I see that your link to donate does not bring us to the SF/SPCA website though - SPCAI is a great organization, but I would like to donate to the shelter doing the Macy's windows....that's www.sfspca.org

great post!!!!!!
