SPCA Macy's Window Has Slow Opening Weekend

Vast throngs of shoppers cooed over the exorbitantly cute puppies and kitties romping within the SPCA Macy's pet adoption display. But a far smaller number of people took the plunge and took home a critter.

Since the SPCA has set a goal of 320 adoptions by the Jan. 2 closing of the display, that comes out to just over seven adoptions a day. Yet at the end of the day on Sunday only 16 animals had been taken home after three days.

This is where we unsubtly break the fourth wall and urge those who are toeing the line to adopt a creature. More adorable animals after the jump.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
