Last week, Crunchyroll went to the San Francisco SPCA in search of some titan-fighting canines and we were pleasantly surprised by a trio of puppies willing to challenge our Colossal Titan (plushie)! Juju, Gavin, and Cookie gave us a great show on our Facebook livestream “A Pup on Titan” including daring aerial attacks just like a proper Survey Corps soldier!
If you missed the action, you can still watch the stream here!
We also had a chance to talk to Suzanne Hollis, the Director of Adoption at the SF SPCA, who gave us an update on the status of our puppy heroes, their heartwarming origin stories and how we can help their efforts to protect and save animals!
1. What are the backstories of our "A Pup on Titan" stars, Juju, Gavin, and Cookie?
Cookie is a sweet little terrier mix who’s four months old. She came to us from the San Francisco city shelter, Animal Care & Control. She can be slightly timid at first, but quickly warms up when she gets to know you. Cookie needs adopters who will give her lots of playtime, exercise, and love.
Juju is a 3-month-old Chihuahua mix who was transferred to us from a shelter in Stockton. She’s a social butterfly who has lots of energy and enjoys making new friends – human and canine alike!
Gavin is a 3-month-old Chihuahua mix who came to us from Fresno. He just had surgery on one of his eyes but he’s doing great and well on his way to a full recovery! Gavin is a total snugglebug and loves to be cuddled.
2. Have they found homes yet?
Juju has been adopted, Gavin’s adoption is pending, but Cookie is still looking for her perfect match!
3. How can we volunteer with the SF SPCA?
Volunteering is a great way to get involved and give back. It can be especially rewarding if you’re not in the position to have animals of your own at home.
The first step is to attend a volunteer orientation session. Learn more about the different volunteer opportunities and upcoming orientations here: www.sfspca.org/volunteer
We also have a volunteer program for kids ages 4 – 18 called Humane Heroes: www.sfspca.org/youth
4. How can we donate to the SF SPCA? What do donations contribute to?
Our lifesaving work simply wouldn’t be possible without community support. The SF SPCA is an independent nonprofit that receives no federal, state or local funding, nor funding from national organizations. More than 5,000 animals find homes through our shelters every year and we provide more than $4 million in veterinary care to animals who would otherwise go without.

5. What are some upcoming events that SF SPCA?
We have all sorts of events, from dog training seminars to animal movie nights for kids! View our full calendar here: www.sfspca.org/get-involved/events/full-calendar
