Holiday Pet Displays

What is everyone looking at?
Every holiday season as far as I can remember, the window displays at the San Francisco downtown Macy's department store draws a large crowd.

What do people see?
Cute pets up for adoption by the SPCA, a non-profit animal welfare organization.
Volunteers also stand by to collect donations from the public. According to the SPCA website, $400,000 (305,000 Euros) have been collected in the last 7 years during the holiday window displays to find shelter for 2,300 homeless animals.

As of last Saturday, 117 animals have found homes!

You might even see the animals live on 4 different webcams if you watch during "window hours".

On the top of my list for tomorrow - Visit all the windows! First time I have seen a dog that big in the Macy's window, how divine.
