Macy’s Holiday Windows Pet Display Revealed

Every year, the Macy's the department store partners with the San Francisco SPCA to help find homes for the city's homeless animals using its "Holiday Windows" attraction, noted as one of USA Today's "10 Great Places to Press Your Nose Against the Glass".

Last Friday Macy’s unveiled its 22nd annual Holiday Windows, in which cats and dogs are presented in delightful holiday scenes. Macy’s designers create "delightful, make-believe windows in which the dogs and cats can frolic". Macy’s pet-friendly Holiday Windows inspired the adoption of 277 animals and approximately $37,000 in donations for The SF/SPCA last year.

Every adoptable animal is medically and behaviorally screened, vaccinated, and spayed or neutered. Each animal comes with a 30 day gift of pet health insurance, a free dog- or cat-advice DVD, leash and collar (for dogs) and discounts on most SF/SPCA training classes. Adopters also receive a gift bag filled with samples, treats and valuable certificates from sponsor partners of The SF/SPCA and Macy’s. Representatives are also on-site to answer questions from potential adopters.

The Windows are available for viewing from store opening until one hour before store closing, from November 21, 2008 until January 1, 2009. And if you can’t make it to the store you can watch the windows live by visiting the San Francisco SPCA website (link below).
