Come and hear from Dr. Jennifer Scarlett on how the San Francisco SPCA is pivoting to continue its lifesaving work during this unique holiday season and beyond. Since 1987, the San Francisco SPCA has been filling the Union Square holiday windows with adoptable animals. Holiday Windows has become a beloved holiday tradition in the City, and the event has helped more than 10,000 animals find their forever homes. Holiday Windows will continue this year, but it will look different because of COVID-19. 

As President of the San Francisco SPCA, Dr. Scarlett has been responsible for a number of visionary programs including a vaccine outreach program to underserved neighborhoods; a highly successful “Sister Shelter” partnership with the Stockton Animal Shelter; a ground-breaking and nationally-recognized program that helps animals with behavior problems; and “Fospice”, a shelter program that uses foster homes to care for the most medically-challenged shelter animals. Under her leadership, the SF SPCA has seen remarkable increases in both spay/neuter surgeries and adoptions. Meanwhile, length-of-stay and citywide euthanasia per capita have decreased.  

Dr. Scarlett has 20 years of experience as a veterinarian in both non-profit and for-profit veterinary medicine. She attended undergraduate studies at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, received a DVM from Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine and completed a large animal residency at the University of Tennessee. Dr. Scarlett is the 2010 Low Fellowship Recipient at University of California, Davis and was awarded the 2011 Meritorious Achievement Award for contributions to the veterinary field by the Association of Shelter Veterinarians. She lives in San Francisco with her dog Louie and Nubs the cat.
