Last week, I shared news about how the Save the Redwoods League is sponsoring a Free Friday in the Redwoods, a day of free access to 49 California redwood state parks on November 27, 2015. Now, Zappos, the shoe and clothing store, is throwing its hat in the let's-remind-the-populace-that-there-are-more-important-things-to-life-than-buying-more-junk ring with a campaign called "Home for the Pawlidayz."

From Black Friday to the following Monday, they will sponsor free pet adoptions from the Best Friends Animal Society and other participating shelters. As if that wasn't enough of a good deed, for every adoption, Zappos will also donate $150 to BFAS.

If you're in the Bay Area, two local locations are Saving Grace Rescue Inc in San Francisco and Umbrella Of Hope Rescue in Pittsburg. If those aren't in your neck of the woods, check out the full list of participating spots.
