Kitty Condos Provide New York Homeless Cats Shelter

(ANIMAL SHELTER) Winter months are difficult for stray cats roaming the streets of New York. Leslie Farrell is an architect who has decided to take the matter into her own hands and build small shelters for these homeless felines to curl up in at night. This is how Architect for Animals came to life, an organization that initiates fundraising by hosting a one-night event known as Giving Shelter, which in turn benefits the Mayor’s Alliance For NYC’s Animals. The event displays the creative outdoor designs built by Architects for the city's strays. Money is then donated to be put into use by the caregivers of NYC Feral Cat Initiative. Check out the different designs for these kitty condos. — Global Animal
