Baby, it’s Cold Outside: Architects for Animals + Shelters For Ferals

If you love cats, sharing makes us purrrr :-)
Baby, it’s cold outside. You’re invited to join lovers of cats and design on Thursday, Jan. 10 6-8 PM for a special event.
Winter is brutal for the 10,000+ feral cats in the NYC area but the annual Architects For Animals event brings a ray of warmth and hope and will benefit the New York City Feral Cat Initiative. Leslie Farrell founded Architects for Animals and is aligned with the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals the sole umbrella organization for animal welfare in NYC, a coalition of 150+ rescue groups and no-kill shelters
At the event, guests will view an exclusive exhibit of innovative feral cat shelters designed by architects. At the end of the evening, the shelters will be donated to feral cat community caretakers around the city. Come meet the architects, TNR feral cat experts, cat bloggers like Tamar Arslanian of I Have Cat and me.
Admission is a $20 donation ($10 for Certified TNR Caretakers) and includes the exhibit, hors d’oeuvres, and drinks. For tickets and reservations (you can pay at the door) RSVP in advance online. I’d love to meet you and hope to see you there!

Here are a few shelter design examples from past events.
