Macy’s To Unveil Cutest Holiday Window Display This Friday
The holidays are on their way, and annual traditions continue. This year, Macy’s and the San Francisco SPCA celebrate the 30th Anniversary of their “Holiday Windows At Union Square” display with some furry friends looking for a home for the holidays.
For 30 years, the San Francisco SPCA and Macy’s have teamed up to help animals looking for their forever homes find their match with Holiday Windows, adorable displays where dogs and cats show their holiday finest to prospective adoptive families. The Union Square tradition has been responsible for finding more than 8,800 dogs and cats permanent and loving homes, while also raising over $88,000 for the SPCA’s shelter programs.
The Windows display will be unveiled on November 18 at 5:00 p.m. at the famous Union Square Macy’s and will also feature Top Chef Just Dessert Winner (and animal lover) Yigit Pura. The De Marillac Academy choir will sing classic holiday favorites just before the Windows are unveiled.
For decades, Macy’s has partnered with the SPCA to help animals find the homes they were always meant for, and last year 261 cats and dogs spent the holidays with their furever families. This year, as they celebrate the 30th year of collaboration, the theme will bring back Macy’s “Believe” campaign and the Windows will allow Santa to remind all who pass by to give generously this season. They will embrace the spirit of the season as they encourage adopting animals and bringing joy to many families this year.
On December 8, Macy’s will also host the San Francisco SPCA’s annual pet photos with Santa Claus event from 5:00-8:00 p.m. in Holiday Lane on Macy’s seventh floor, and if you’re not in the San Francisco area, you can go here to watch the puppies and kittens spread holiday cheer via live stream video cameras. For those who can’t make it to Macy’s but would like to still adopt from the San Francisco SPCA shelters, the adoption fees for adult cats will be waived.
Holiday Windows, sponsored also by Purina One, Tidy Cats, Obe Bowls and Zoetis, will feature different animals each day in order to give exposure to as many animals as possible and SPCA volunteers will also be available at the display to share in the holiday season as they answer questions and help with the adoption process.
So, if you are in the San Francisco area this holiday season, check them out! Santa and his furriest friends will be waiting!
