The San Francisco SPCA, in partnership with Embarcadero Center, is launching their second annual pop-up in hopes to find furever homes for their rescues. Here is what exciting events are in store for the city’s animal lovers!

This February, San Francisco locals are in for a treat, as they’ll get to enjoy mountains of cuddles and cuteness at SFSPCA’s pop-up adoption center. Throughout the month, visitors of One Embarcadero Center can meet the lovely rescues while participating in fun activities.

The festivities kick off February 1st, with Opening Night Extravaganza. The grand party will feature numerous artists, acrobats, musicians and a mentalist, and the attendees will feast on wine, beer, and snacks. The event is free, but if you want to visit, RSVP is mandatory. For the occasion, SF SPCA will partner with More Than a Cone organization in an effort to spread awareness about pet adoption and welfare, with a Cone of Shame Art Gallery and silent auction featuring original works of many talented artists.

But the pawesome party is not the only amazing event visitors can expect. The San Francisco SPCA’s pop-up will host daily and weekly events, such as:


Every Thursday the pop-up will host a Yappy Hour from 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm. Stop by after work for wine and cuddles!


Grab a cup of coffee and meet some special cats from FieldHaven Feline Center, one of the SF SPCA’s rescue partners. Open weekdays 11 am – 7 pm.


Snuggle up with adorable puppies! A $10 donation will get you 10 minutes of cuddle time. Signups are first come, first served whenever the pop-up is open.


Enjoy bubbly and bites while painting an 11 x 14 canvas of your pet! February 13, 5pm – 7pm. Tickets are required.

The pop-up will be open from February 2nd to 28th. If you’re in the San Fransico area and looking to adopt a pet or just have some furball-themed fun (and help rescues at the same time), One Embarcadero Center is the place to be.
