The Washington Humane Society-Washington Animal Rescue League will host its Designs for Felines: Giving Community Cats Shelter event on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at The National Press Club from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM.
This is a one-of-a-kind event where WHS-WARL works with everyone from local architecture firms, design teams, college groups, and even architectural networks and ask that they design, build, and donate small animal shelters (to hold 1-2 cats) that are creative, yet functional.
The shelters will be on display during the event and the top three designs will be recognized on stage during the presentation. After the event, WHS-WARL will distribute the shelters throughout DC to provide a home for its community cats, helping them to survive the harsh winter months.
WHEN: Wednesday, January 25, 2017, 6:00pm – 8:00pm
WHERE: The National Press Club Ballroom, 529 14th St. NW, 13th Floor, Washington, DC 20045
PARTICIPATION: Designs for Felines is a wonderful opportunity for participating architecture firms and design teams to build your portfolio and give back to the local community by becoming a participant. Participating teams will design and build outdoor shelters for DC’s community cats that will provide refuge from the season’s inclement weather. These outdoor shelters will be showcased at the one-night fundraising event at The National Press Club and then be disseminated throughout DC to WHS-WARL volunteers who provide care to local cat colonies. Any shelters that are not able to be utilized outdoors (based on the materials they are made from) will be auctioned off to guests at the end of the night to raise additional funds. Team participation fee is $150.
