When San Francisco eventually becomes Palo Alto, all of the dogs will wear shoes

Shoes for dogs.

DOG SHOES.

Save some animals, drink some cocktails

Party at the SPCA this Friday evening! Here’s the deal:

Join us for a party to toast the growth of San Francisco SPCA’s lifesaving adoption program in our newly remodeled space in the heart of the Mission. The new adoption center features an indoor dog park, San Francisco-themed cat condos, interactive technology designed to better help you meet your perfect pet, and more.

Why did we need a remodel? To expand our capacity and help more than 6,000 animals find loving homes each year. Come for cocktails at the hosted bar, food trucks, music, and to find your new best friend!

Read all about it!

Canine motorists are just as frustrated by all this traffic as you are

“So do you think you can hurry up and move along, buddy?  Just trying to get home over here.”

The cutest little ugly dog in the neighborhood

Just look at this little guy, sitting there all alone while his owners brunch it up at St. Francis Fountain.  I definitely understand why he’s looking so pissed off, too–I mean, if I was missing out on their delectable biscuits and gravy, I’d probably feel the same way!

Hang in there, little fella!

The El Rio cat knows how to deal with this frigid weather

Sunny patio, heat lamp, and a Bloody Mary (not pictured) from what just might be the best bar in the city.

Ps. Don’t worry, Knockout! I still love you! I just wish you had a patio, too!

Look at this fluffy dog reclining in a beach chair

Reclining like a motherfucker!
