The San Francisco SPCA Celebrates Valentine's Day During Be Mine Adopt-a-thon Weekend

Friday, January 25th, 2013

The San Francisco SPCA is hosting the second annual Be Mine Adopt-a-thon weekend, February 8th - 10th. Adoption fees will be waived all weekend for animals from the SF SPCA and select rescue partners, including SF Animal Care & Control, Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, and Family Dog Rescue.

The festivities will kick off Friday evening with a FREE Be Mine Tattoo Cocktail Party, 4:30pm - 9:00pm, at the SF SPCA's Adoption Center (250 Florida Street). Beer, wine, cocktails, and snacks will be complimentary. Flexx Bronco's Voodoo Van and Manna Japanese Comfort Food will also be on site serving up tasty treats from their food trucks.

During the cocktail party San Francisco's most talented tattoo artists, including DannyBoy Smith of Let It Bleed Tattoo Parlor fame, will be offering their inking services for just $40. SF SPCA employees Daniel Quagliozzi and Laura Gretch will be auctioning off their next tattoos; the highest bidder will decide what they will each wear, forever! A link to the eBay auction will be posted at 12:00pm on February 3rd at sfspca.org/be-mine.

The celebration continues on Saturday with four FREE workshops led by SF SPCA animal behavior experts. "Trouble in Paradise? Learn How to Read Body Language for a Better Relationship (With Your Pets)" will take place from 1:30pm - 2:15pm, with separate workshops focusing on cat and dog behavior. "Are You Ready for Love? How to Find a Forever Match", from 2:15pm - 3:00pm, will help potential adopters find their purr-fect companion. Again, there will be separate workshops for those interested in canine and feline adoption. All will take place at the SF SPCA's Adoption Center (250 Florida Street), no pre-registration required. All day Saturday and Sunday the Adoption Center will host a bake sale benefiting the SF SPCA's Foster Department, as well as a Smooch the Pooch Kissing Booth and prize wheel.
