Cute, Adoptable Pets are Back in the Decorated Windows of Macy’s Union Square

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

OMG, they’re back! Don’t go into Cute Overload when you see the pets of the San Francisco SPCA Holiday Windows program at the corner of Stockton and O’Farrell.

Folks were still setting up a few days back, but now would be a good time to check things out. And don’t miss the Union Square tree lighting at Nov. 27, 2009, 6:00 PM. Check the photos.

As seen on Saturday:

San Francisco

Macy’s will once again partner with San Francisco’s Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) to give homeless cats and dogs a second chance to find warm and loving homes. Holiday shoppers can glimpse some of San Francisco’s cutest animals, along with Santa himself, in Macy’s Stockton and O’Farrell Street windows. This year’s windows are inspired by Macy’s Believe campaign, which asks children to deposit their stamped letters to Santa in official Santa’s mailboxes in our stores. Animals up for adoption will frolic in front of a variety of doorsteps indicative of classic architecture, from colonial to cottage, modern to brownstone and log cabin to deco. Santa letters will arrive at Santa’s mailroom, where the jolly man himself will be checking his list to find out which dogs and cats have been naughty or nice. SPCA representatives will be on site while the pets are on display to answer questions from potential adopters.

Macy’s Great Tree in Union Square, Macy’s gift to the city and most recognized Christmas tree will be officially lit in Union Square. A 85-foot Shasta White Fir from the Carlton Tree Farm in Mount Shasta will be adorned with thousands of twinkling lights and 1,500 red and gold ornaments. For the seventh year, Macy’s has made UCSF Children’s Hospital the beneficiary of its annual tree lighting. For $5, anyone can sponsor a light bulb to illuminate the tree; all proceeds go directly to the UCSF Children’s Hospital’s palliative care program, which supports families whose children have life-threatening illnesses. There will be musical performances and, of course, Santa Claus will lead thousands of holiday revelers in a spirited countdown before throwing the switch to light the tree.

See you there!
