Adoptable Puppies, Kittens Tempt Downtown Shoppers

Macy's adoption windows are back to add cuteness to the holidays.

Macy’s is going to have a lot of smudges to clean off their window display for the rest of the year — or sooner, if all the puppies and kittens they’re showing off are adopted.

As holiday shopping starts increasingly earlier, there are at least adorable animals looking for a home with tens of thousands of visitors looking at them as they make capitalists ecstatic. The Macy’s Union Square unveiling begins Friday at 5 p.m.

Partnered with the San Francisco SPCA, the holiday display has found homes for more than 9,000 animals since it began 31 years ago, Bay City News reports. The 2016 display, aided by 700 volunteers, yielded new homes for 257 animals.

This year, more animals for adoption are also on the sixth floor, where visitors can donate to schedule a “Cuddle Experience.” 

Macy’s adoption center hours vary. For more on hours, adoption, and donations, visit http://holiday.sfspca.org/.
