The Houston SPCA and Neiman Marcus Galleria are once again proud to partner together this Holiday Season to save the lives of homeless, abused and neglected animals.  The unveiling of this year’s platinum holiday adoption extravaganza will take place this Friday, November 26th, at 9:00 am in the windows on the first floor of Neiman Marcus Galleria at 2600 Post Oak.  Playful puppies, classy canines and frisky felines will dazzle and delight holiday shoppers as they wait to be adopted into loving, permanent homes.

Every year, Neiman Marcus Houston begins the holiday season by partnering with the Houston SPCA for the famous pet adoptions during the month of December.  Last year, Neiman Marcus and the Houston SPCA celebrated 20 successful years of pet adoptions together in the store window.  The day after Thanksgiving, the pet adoption window is unveiled, and this year’s window display is sure to be our most impressive window yet!  Museum of Cultural Arts Houston (MOCAH) will be donating this year’s adoption window exhibit, featuring local artwork.  The holiday window display will be painted during a live viewing of a piece entitled Sundance from 10 am to 12 pm on the morning after Thanksgiving by Houston artist John Palmer.  Shoppers and curious onlookers will have the rare opportunity to witness the artist throughout the creative process.  We hope this year’s inaugural day of adoptions will break an all-time record!

Pet adoptions will take place beginning Friday, November 26th through Wednesday, December 22nd.  After the kick-off on Friday, the hours for this year’s holiday adoption event are as follows:

Monday through Saturday: 10 am to 6 pm

Special Sunday Hours
11-28: Noon pm to 6 pm
12-5: 12 pm to 6 pm
12-12: 11 am to 6 pm
12-19: 10 am to 6 pm

The cost to adopt will range from $65.00 to $150.00 and includes: a health evaluation, initial vaccinations, rabies vaccinations for animals three months and older, spay / neuter surgery, deworming, heartworm testing for dogs six months and older, feline leukemia testing for cats, microchipping with free lifetime registration and, of course, a friend for life!  As an added bonus, VCA Animal Hospitals will provide a complimentary overall wellness examination (within five days after adoption) and complimentary 14-day follow-up care for certain conditions to give your pet the very best in medical care, and everyone receives a FREE bag of Hills Science Diet food!
