Architects for Animals: Giving Shelter in the News

Every year since 2010, some of New York's most prestigious architectural designers, through an inventive project called Architects for Animals, have been helping New York City's feral cats by creating imaginative winter shelters to provide them with a refuge from the cold. We are delighted to present these collections of unique, inspired winter shelters for public viewing at the Architects for Animals: Giving Shelter exhibit before they are placed in locations throughout the city to provide comfort for the cats. This annual exhibition benefits the New York City Feral Cat Initiative of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals.
