Architects For Animals Builds Shelters for Homeless Cats Jan. 14

Architects for Animals, a fundraising and awareness initiative that supports CatNiPP, is holding their annual “Giving Shelter” one-night event that will benefit the Washington Humane Society on January 14, 2015 from 6:00-8:00 pm.

Held at The American Institute od Architects (1735 New York Avenue, NW), participating architectural design firms build and donate creative outdoor winter shelters to provide DC’s homeless cats with refuge from the season’s freezing temperatures. These shelters will be on display to the public at the event and at the end of the evening all shelters will be donated to care givers who work with the WHS. The shelters will be distributed throughout DC to be utilized by community cats. In addition to the professional cat shelters that will be on display at this event (designed and produced by local architects) there is an opportunity to help create even more shelters for DC's community cats. They will be collecting cat shelter supplies and you can bring any of the following items with you to the event: - Large plastic storage container with a tight-fitting lid - Insulation: a styrofoam cooler - Straw (not hay) - Duct tape - Zip ties - Catnip or cat treats For more information or questions: or 202.735.0324.
