Those looking for a special gift should go to the windows of Neiman Marcus at Union Square, where animals from the San Francisco SPCA are on display and available for adoption.
More pets will be available across the street at the SF/SPCA pavilion, where SPCA personnel can provide information on individual animals and guide you through the adoption process. Every adopted pet will be vaccinated, spayed or neutered and screened for medical or behavioral problems, and come with a 30-day medical assistance plan, a booklet of helpful hints and a new leash or carrier.
Adoption costs only $35 per pet.
This is the third year in a row animals have been displayed at one of the city's stores during the holiday season, according to an SPCA spokeswoman. The display and pavilion will remain at Union Square until Dec. 23.
