Welcome to Critter Lovers at Work (CLAW)
CLAW (Critter Lovers At Work) was founded by Jill H. Kramer in 1987 with the mission to promote public awareness of and community support for the SF SPCA, and to have fun doing it. CLAW is an all-volunteer support group of SF SPCA.
CLAW plans and produces special events that benefit The Cinderella Fund at the SF SPCA. CLAW’s first events were the Holiday Windows at Gump’s in 1987 and The Great SF/SPCA Cat and Dog Fair that same year. The purpose of that event was to generate visibility and to attract broad community participation by offering a diverse selection of activities and educational venues, to educate the public on the important role of pets in contact with human beings, and to further emphasize human kindness to the pets who share our urban environment.
This tradition has continued with events such as the Bare Bones Bash, Animal Wing Ding, the Bark & Whine Ball, and Hats Off Luncheon. CLAW’s signature event is the Bark & Whine Ball. All are welcome to attend with their well behaved dogs.
Tribute to Priscilla, A True Cinderella Story
Thanks to the Cinderella Fund and your support of the Bark and Whine Ball, she lived happily with her adoptive family in San Francisco from the Spring of 2010 until April 18, 2015.
Though she was a small poodle by breed, and moved about on 3 legs, she had an indominable spirit, and brought joy into the lives of everyone she met, especially Nancy and Smokey.
Surrounded by 11 friends on a peaceful Saturday, on a deck overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge and The City she loved, Priscilla and her friends celebrated her life with many toasts, laughs, and good food – surrounded by love.
Her spirit lives on in all that we do at CLAW and the San Francisco SPCA.
