PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pets In Need partners with Macy's Stanford Shopping Center for the Third Annual Macy's Holiday Pet Adoption Windows in Palo Alto. Macy's is helping homeless pets get home for the holidays from December 4, 2010 through December 24, 2010.  Pets In Need will have adorable adoptable dogs, cats, puppies and kittens who are ready for their forever homes in the windows each day from noon to 7 p.m.

"I love pets so much and want them to all find homes," said Craig Herrera, KNTV's (NBC, Bay Area) Emmy Award winning meteorologist, who will be with the Pets In Need team at the windows on December 4, 2010.

Holidays can be a perfect time to adopt a new, furry family member.  The family is usually all home, and there is plenty of time to spend helping the new dog or cat adjust to his or her new home life.  "Thoughtful planning and preparation for the new arrival is key to making a holiday adoption a great success," said Lisa Simmons, Executive Director of Pets In Need.  "We have done some of our most touching adoptions during this time of year."

Pets In Need staff and volunteers will be at the windows each day to answer any questions.  All adoptable animals have been medically screened, are current on their vaccinations appropriate to age, microchipped and spayed or neutered.
