Free booze, cheap tattoos, and adoptable animals!

The SF SPCA is holding its annual Be Mine adopt-a-thon, and kicking it off with a cocktail party on Friday, February 8. This is pretty much the best Valentine’s Day thing you can go to in the city.  Not only is there an open bar (last year, a friendly volunteer poured a VERY generous whiskey on the rocks in a plastic cup for me), but you can also get a $40 tattoo and adopt a new furry friend! All adoption fees will be waived all weekend (Feb 8-10) for animals from the SF SPCA, SF Animal Care & Control, Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, and Family Dog Rescue. Last year I got a little TOO much plastic cup whiskey and got verklempt over the existence of cats and how wonderful they are. Be careful. You might get weird.

You can also bid on the next tattoo to grace the skin of two SF SPCA employees. One of these employees is Daniel Quagliozzi, the Mission’s resident cat behavior specialist. Bidding is now open! What will Daniel end up with? A satanic Hello Kitty?  ”CAT LYFE” in Olde English across his neck? Find out on Friday! The party starts at 4:30pm and goes until 9pm.

The Be Mine adopt-a-thon has events throughout the weekend including free workshops and a freakin’ Smooch the Pooch kissing booth on Sunday. Visit the SF SCPA Be Mine event page for more details.

SPCA/ACC Adoptathon this Saturday!

Our pal Heather has been spending a bunch of time volunteering at the SPCA Animal Control Center, which basically entails playing with and petting a bunch of super cute cats, and she wanted to let you know about something rad going on this Saturday:

The SPCA and the Animal Control Center are having a huge pet adoption event this weekend at 15th and Harrison. It’s sponsored by this non-profit, “Maddie’s Matchmakers” so Pet adoptions are free and the organizations get much needed $$$ from each pet adopted. And lest you worry that this will attract riff-raff who don’t want to pay adoption fees, all adopters are still screened for appropriateness (like landlord permission–which we all know can be a deal-breaker).

Adoptathon!  Sooooo cute!  Check out all the details here!
