On January 10th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals welcomes all New Yorkers to a unique exhibit and cocktail reception that combines the love of architecture with the love of animals. Eight architectural firms will unveil new winter shelters that they created for feral cats. The architects worked for months, with input from numerous feral cat colony caretakers, to build appropriate feline-friendly structures that will keep the animals safe and warm during the winter months. There are an estimated one million homeless animals, predominantly cats, living on the streets, backyards, and other outdoor locations in New York.

These one-of-a-kind shelters will be on display at “Architects for Animals Giving Shelter” at the Steelcase Building in Columbus Circle. Guests will have the chance to vote on their favorite design. The shelters will be installed in feral cat colonies across New York City.
