Karen the chicken wants you to feed her greens! Harvest Home is looking for new volunteers. It’s a six-month commitment to one four-to-six-hour day per month of work that includes “barn cleaning and animal health tasks,” which isn’t much! You could hang out with all the animals and help keep them happy in their spacious Stockton digs.
Harvest Home is holding a volunteer orientation and sanctuary tour on Saturday, Feb. 2, from 1 to 3 p.m. You must RSVP to email@example.com to sign up for the event (also for more information, and to get directions).

SF SPCA’s holiday window display of adoptable animals debuts Friday at Macy’s! »
Catch the unveiling of the SF SPCA’s annual holiday window display of adorable, adoptable animals at Macy’s Union Square on Friday! Beat back your case of Seasonal Affective Disorder with an eyeful of baby animals who want to be your best friend!
Last year this display led to more than 325 animals finding forever homes, and almost $80,000 for the SF SPCA! Awesome. Also of note:
The SF SPCA needs volunteers to help spread the holiday cheer at Windows by greeting the public, collecting donations, and directing visitors to the SF SPCA pop-up adoption center inside Macy’s. The 2-hour shifts do not require special training. Groups are welcome, and children are invited to volunteer alongside their parents. For details or to sign up, visit sfspca.org/holiday-volunteer or call (415) 554-3008.
Each holiday window will be equipped with a video camera that streams images to sfspca.org/holiday, so you can watch the kittens and puppies from your computer.
For those who can’t make it to Macy’s, the SF SPCA will be waiving the adoption fee on adult animals adopted from the permanent SF SPCA Adoption Center at 250 Florida St. [from] Nov. 16 to Jan. 1, 2013.
Check out the window unveiling at 5 p.m. on Friday at Macy’s Union Square, at the corner of Stockton and O’Farrell streets in San Francisco. Yes, the darkness encroaches as the winter solstice draws nearer, but an animal companion warms your heart (and lap) even on the coldest nights.
