A Friday night cocktail party kicks off a weekend of free adoptions for adult animals!

September 19, 2017 – Join the SF SPCA for an artsy-themed cocktail party and adoptathon weekend based on the 2010 movie “Exit Through the Gift Shop,” which focused on the world’s most infamous graffiti artists. Adult animals (6+ months) will be free to adopt all weekend, October 13 – 15, at both SF SPCA locations in the Mission and Pacific Heights.

The weekend will kick off with a Friday evening cocktail party at the SF SPCA’s Mission Campus, 6pm – 9pm. The work of noted artists will be featured throughout the adoption center – including Peter Samuels, Rick Begneaud, and JD Wilson – and San Francisco’s finest tattoo artists will be on hand for those who want more permanent art! Tattoo reservations are first come, first served. Guests will also have the opportunity to paint their pet (pre-registration required), screen print a limited edition t-shirt, check out the new Petcube Bites camera at the Petcube Lounge, and pop by to see Macy’s make-up and brow stylists before snapping photo booth pictures.

Open and top shelf bars will be available, along with vegetarian food trucks and sweet treats from Smitten Ice Cream.

“At our last adoption event, in August, 104 animals found new homes – the most ever in San Francisco in a single day,” explained SF SPCA President Dr. Jennifer Scarlett. “Hosting special events helps bring people into our shelters who might not otherwise plan to visit. In turn, our animals find loving homes more quickly and we’re able to save more lives.”

RSVP is required for the cocktail party. A limited number of free tickets are available, and then tickets will be available with a donation of the attendee’s choice.

The SF SPCA’s Mission Campus is located at 201 Alabama Street, and the Pacific Heights Campus is at 2343 Fillmore Street.
