San Francisco Animal Care and Control is partnering with the San Francisco SPCA and Macy’s Union Square for Holiday Windows! This is the first time that SF ACC will be part of the event. In addition to cats and dogs, this year’s Holiday Windows will feature adorable, adoptable small animals like rabbits, chinchillas, and guinea pigs.
Join the unveiling at 5 p.m. on Friday, November 22, at Macy’s Union Square on the corner of Stockton and O’Farrell Streets. The Windows will remain open every day throughout the holiday season from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., except Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Last year alone, 239 animals found homes at Holiday Windows and more than $77,000 was donated to support the SF SPCA’s year-round lifesaving programs.
Each detail of the Macy’s Holiday Windows is designed for the comfort of the animals, in partnership with the SF SPCA and SF ACC, ensuring that every need is considered. The 2019 Macy’s Holiday Windows feature whimsical and dreamlike visuals, utilizing motion, light and music to bring Santa and his helpers to life.
This year, the SF SPCA and SF ACC are hosting two special Cuddle Experiences, where visitors can snuggle with adoptable animals. $10 gets 10 minutes of snuggles! Cuddle sessions are available first come, first served, on the 7th Floor of Macy’s. November 8, 2pm - 4pm and December 5, 12pm - 2pm.
On December 12, visitors are invited to come and get their pet’s photo taken with Santa at the special Santa Paws event, 5pm - 8pm, on Macy’s 7th Floor. Champagne and treats will be served. Tickets will be available in early November.
Holiday Windows relies on volunteer support. Last year 688 volunteers contributed 4,174 hours! The short two-hour shifts involve greeting the public, collecting donations, and directing people to the adoption center inside Macy’s. No prior training is required, and groups are welcome to volunteer together.
