I recently had the chance to get a behind the scenes tour at the San Francisco SPCA through a friend who works there. I was able to learn about their amazing programs, like therapy dogs, the spay and neuter clinic to help reduce the number of kitties and doggies in shelters, and their vet hospital, which offers free and discounted care to people who need help getting medical treatments for their pets.
This is the animal care center. All of the little red dots are heart-shaped pet tags!
I saw the adoption center and went into the hospital where some dogs were getting dental treatments. I also got to walk around the back halls of the animal care center, where cats and dogs are helped and treated while getting ready to be placed in the adoption center.
And best of all, I got to hold a little kitten!
Soooo cute! I wanted to take home all the animals I saw! But, my friend said he didn't want to have to check me for kittens before leaving, so I cooperated. I know they're all going to go to good homes.
I didn't get to see a lot of dogs because many were out on walks, or were barking so much the rooms were just too loud to go into.
I met this guy in my friend's office. I would love to have an office with a built-in kitty (or dog)! I don't know how I'd get any work done, though...
