The Home for the Holidays Adoption Pavilion, located at NorthPark Center on Level One between Macy's and Dillard's, will open on Black Friday, November 26, and run through Thursday, December 23. The SPCA of Texas will feature adoptable pets Thursday through Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. each week with the hope that over 200 animals will find their forever homes this holiday season. SPCA of Texas merchandise will be available for purchase seven days a week. Since the SPCA of Texas' first year of Home for the Holidays in 1990, over 10,000 pets have been adopted. Children who came with their parents and adopted a pet, are now coming back as adults with their families and adopting again. This event is a holiday tradition for many families here in North Texas.
