San Francisco SPCA

Saturday, 2:00pm

201 Alabama Street, San Francisco

The birthplace of the no-kill movement, the San Francisco SPCA is San Francisco’s largest no-kill organization and celebrates a 97% Live Release rate in their shelter. Their numerous community initiatives include youth outreach programs (including—but not limited to—literacy programs, humane education, and school break animal camps), animal assisted therapy, a hearing dog program, a spay/neuter clinic, foster care, pet loss support, a police horse retirement ranch, and their innovative Sido program, which provides long-term care and adoption services for animals whose humans predecease them. Their Puppy Dog Tales Reading Program brings the benefits of the human-companion animal bond to young readers.  Puppy Dog Tales works in San Francisco Public Libraries, San Francisco Unified Schools and local bookstores to improve literacy and engender a love of reading in children whose first language is not English, those with learning disabilities, and remedial readers.  www.sfspca.org

    Missed you in Austin!

    My entire book club read your book and LOVED it. It's inspiring on many levels, in addition to sharing your personal relationships with Homer and his siblings that any animal lover will appreciate... I cried reading the 9/11 experience and laughed my butt off on the blended family portion. And thanks for the dating tips, quite informative!
    Hope to meet you someday. Happy travels, Gwen!
