SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — How much is that doggie in the window? At Macy’s, the answer is up to $250, but you can also do some post-Christmas shopping while you pick out a pup. Macy’s Union Square holiday window display is actually live animals, in the 27th annual San Francisco SPCA tradition, continuing through January 5th.

Last year 300 animals were adopted out, and $80,000 raised to support the organization.

“I fall in love with at least one pet every year,” said Rise Hixson, from Macy’s Union Square. “It’s easily my favorite window display because of the joy it brings to so many.”

If Boxing Day shoppers can’t make it to the city, the dogs and cats have an online presence as well.

Adoption fees range from $250 for puppies, but there is a discount for those taking a Puppy Parent class. Kittens are $125, but different fees apply for younger animals, and adult dogs and cats, and for multiple adoptions.
