Pet Pride Day 2016 Rained Out


Even though we had to cancel the street fair because of the rain, ACC kept calm and carried on inside the shelter, bringing pet pride inside after a storm blew in. Educational exhibits/games, pumpkin and face decorating, and an amazing bake sale supplied by volunteers and local companies kept spirits high. Over the afternoon, 24 animals were adopted—16 cats/kittens, 7 dogs, and 1 rabbit (who had been at the shelter since April); more than 30 photos were taken at the holiday photo booth; 9 free microchips and 13 rabies vaccines were given.

All funds raised go to programs and materials that enrich the lives of ACC’s animals.

Thank you to our wonderful Pet Pride Day sponsors. We’ll see you in 2017! 

Note: Planning is already underway to hold PPD during a sunny season (summer of 2017).


Thank you 2016 Sponsors!

Pet Pride Day is brought to you by…


Pet Camp is a band of pet lovers and pet parents dedicated to providing your pet with a safe, fun and caring environment in your absence. They believe in a personalized approach to pet care ensuring your peace-of-mind knowing your pet is safe, happy and loved while you’re away. The 13,000 square foot Savannah provides an off-leash romp in San Francisco’s largest dog park designed specifically for dogs. The Cat Safari adventure features enclosed private gardens, a bubbling fountain, plants for exploring, and birds within sight for chasing? Either way, Pet Camp or Cat Safari has it all. San Francisco Animal Care and Control’s Pet Camper program allows ACC to send shelter dogs needing a change of scenery to Pet Camp. Thank you Pet Camp for caring for our pups!

You may know Recology as your friendly waste, recycling, and compost team but to all of us at  ACC they are our heroes. Who can forget the story of Gem the tiny puppy found by employees while sorting debris at Recology? Without the attentive staff at Recology, this puppy in need of medical care, love, and a home could have had a very different ending. With the help of ACC and Friends, Gem is now living the life all dogs should live–read about her in Success Stories.
