The Macy’s Union Square pet adoptions this past holiday season led to 339 animals finding a home, the most in the event’s 27-year history, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has announced.
The 2012 Holiday Windows event ended with the adoptions of 287 animals, according to the SPCA.
After this season’s adoptions concluded Sunday night, the event had raised more than $80,000, with some donations yet to be counted. The organization is hopeful of breaking last season’s record of $87,000.
“We want to extend a huge ‘thank you’ to the community for opening their hearts and homes to so many homeless animals this holiday season. It was truly remarkable to see everyone come together to save lives,” an SPCA statement said.
