shelter design

Let’s be honest, every architect thinks he knows how to design a kennel or adoption center.  And an awful lot of board members or staff think they can sketch out the perfect shelter plan.  In either case you will most likely end up with a project that runs over budget, creates operational headaches, and doesn’t stand up to the test of time.

The reality is that a great design requires qualified architectural design support with the direction of qualified animal welfare professionals.  AWMS staff and consultants have decades of experience in design and construction of animal welfare facilities and have seen the very best- and worst- examples within the industry.  We bring that experience to bear to assist you with your design and construction project, whether it is a small cattery or kennel addition or renovation, a large scale rebuild, or build from scratch.

AWMS can help you, your board and your staff every step of the way from planning, design, site evaluation, and zoning or building approvals to construction drawings, contractor selection, project oversight, or interior design.  And we can even help with your capital fundraising needs.  Don’t be the guinea pig for a design team’s first animal welfare project.  Work with animal welfare professionals and architectural design support who can deliver you the addition or building of your dreams- not your nightmares.  Contact AWMS today to learn more.
