The San Francisco SPCA is launching an initiative today, September 2nd, to raise funds for their shelter dogs. They will begin selling scarves and ties, with each item’s profits going to shelter dogs. One item will feed a single dog for 20 days, which is the average time it takes for a dog to find a new home.

The initiative is able to take place thanks to Bows-N-Ties, a popular online retailer that offers over 5,000 different neckties and bow ties. Bows-N-Ties chooses a charitable cause to get involved with each year and this year chose the San Francisco SPCA in order to raise funds for homeless animals.

The initiative’s goal is to raise $30,000 by the Holidays, an amount that will enable the San Francisco SPCA to feed 1,000 dogs until they find forever homes.

Six special designs were created just for this project, each screen printed by hand on the finest silk twill. The fabric goes on to be cut and sewn into very classy scarves and ties. All profits will be given to the San Francisco SPCA.

  1. Gee, perhaps the DPCA of SFO could share some of that money with the SGO Animal Care & Control facility that exists just a few city blocks away from the SPCA shelter. While the SPCA may pick and choose which dogs that are taken into its shelter, the SFO ACC has no choice about which dogs are accepted into its shelter. Many overlooked, sick, underweight strays end up at SFI ACC where they are killed after a very shiort state mandated (5 day) holding period. While it is very very generous if any business to donate to animal causes, some causes are far less financially able to save animals. This is always the case with government run “kill” shelters.
