#GivingTuesday 2019 High Five!










We had a record-breaking #GivingTuesday​ at SF Animal Care & Control on Dec. 3, 2019! Together we raised over $10,200 and met our $10K PET CAMP Matching Gift Challenge. That means TWICE the support for our shelter programs. The outpouring of funding we received from you expresses your commitment to helping animals in San Francisco. From the bottom of our hearts and paws we thank you! And thank you Pet Camp!

Your gift will go directly toward critical programs that are outside the scope of the shelter’s city budget, such as a Behavior and Training program (B&T), quarterly free microchip and low-cost rabies vaccine clinics, an Emergency Medical Fund, toys and treats for the animals, and microgrants to local rescue groups.

We deeply appreciate your support and promise that your donation will be wisely spent.

In gratitude,
~The Friends of SFACC

A partygoer enjoys a bunny cuddle at the Oct. 24 celebration honoring the 30th anniversary of the SF SPCA and SFACC partnership. Thank you to SFACC staff and volunteers who brought our small animals out for the evening: Kirby Counts, Mandy Covey, Loretta Kelley, Perry Matlock, Diane Pignari, Michael Reed, and Sofi Sylve. 

A beautiful night was had by all at this celebration of 30 years of the San Francisco SPCA and San Francisco Animal Care and Control saving lives together! We are more than neighbors; we are allies and partners, and we could not accomplish the work we do without working together.

Kittens, Classics, and Chocolate at City (Kitty) Hall

For two days in August, SF City Hall’s South Light Court became KITTY HALL, an elegant room filled with lovely baroque music, courtesy of impromptuSF, and the mewing of many, many kittens. SFACC held the adoption events conveniently during lunchtime, and Dandelion Chocolate (a neighbor of SFACC) provided sweet treats–for the humans, that is.

Folks came by to cuddle kittens, and quite a few petting sessions ended in adoptions. Thank you to all the volunteers and staff members who helped out on this fun adoption event!
