SAN FRANCISCO―San Francisco’s Embarcadero Center is serving as the host to a pop-up adoption center this month. Visitors will be able to meet, play, and cuddle with pets that are all available for adoption and also watch a “Bunny Bowl.” The center was created by San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals.

From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. throughout entire month of February, except for President’s Day on February 20, visitors can mingle with the adoptable animals at Two Embarcadero Center.

Jennifer Scarlett, SF SPCA president and veterinarian, encourages workers to visit the center during their lunch break or after work.

Every weekday from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., visitors can attend “Coffee Cuddles” events where people are encouraged to cuddle with the animals. And every Thursday from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., visitors can indulge in food and cocktails while visiting with a potential pet during “Yappy Hour.”

The “Bunny Bowl” will be held Friday , February 3 at noon, held by SPCA officials for Adopt a Rescue Rabbit Month. Visitors can watch a adoptable rabbits hop around on a miniature football field.

The goal is for visitors to consider adopting one of the more than 5,500 animals up for adoption each year. Scarlett also hopes that the location will draw visitors who might not consider visiting an SPCA adoption center.

“We’ve gotten a great turnout so far,” SF SPCA spokeswoman Krista Maloney said. “We’re definitely looking forward to the rest of the month.”
