In December, SFACC adopted out 111 cats, 42 dogs, and 15 small animals (rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, mice, hamsters, etc.).
170 animals went home for the holidays!

Recently at an outdoor SF café, a volunteer ran into King, one of the dogs evacuated to SFACC from Hurricane Irma! His sweet adopters are smitten with him and can’t imagine life without him.
