Building Shelters for Outdoor Cats 
Thursday, January 4, 2018
6:30-8:30 p.m.
ASPCA Midtown Administrative Offices
520 8th Avenue, 7th Floor
New York, NY 10018
 
Learn the materials, tools, and skills needed to build warm, waterproof shelters to protect feral and stray community cats from cold winter temperatures and precipitation. We will demonstrate how to build two styles of outdoor winter shelters. You will also learn general information about the cat shelters that are available for purchase locally, as well as the merits of the many pre-fab shelters available for purchase online. 
The presentation will include demonstrations of how to build:
1) A low-tech style of shelter requiring no special skills
2) A second style of shelter requiring minimal prowess using basic tools 
Some hands-on training will be available at this workshop as a teaching aid only. Detailed instructions for future shelter construction will be provided to all attendees. Attendees will not leave the workshop with a shelter in-hand, and no shelters will be sold at the lecture, but examples of available styles will be on display.  Course Fee:   There is no fee to attend this workshop, but advance registration is required.  Notes: You must bring photo ID for admittance to the building. Please do not bring animals to the workshop (with the exception of service animals).  Only a few spots left, click here for more info.

Huck is a five-year-old Lab Retriever Mix. He is an amazingly loving and loyal companion who always does all he can to please his person. While he may have a serious look about him, he is a goofy and playful guy, always up for an adventure. Sit down on the floor and this over-sized lap dog will plop right down on top of you. Housebroken and trained in basic obedience, Huck has spent too many days in the shelter. He desperately wants and needs a home and companion to call his very own. (photo by Dee McMeekan)

Nana came to Pets Alive in June, 2015 from a shelter in Georgia, she was very frightened. Since that time however, volunteers and staff have worked with Nana and she's come out of her shell. She even likes to don a hat now and then! This led to Nana taking chances with new people and experiences. She's now in a foster home to help her further her skills in living in a household. She is 6 1/2 years old and is available for adoption with adoption fees waived, thanks to a grant from Petco Foundation.

Sweet Annie was rescued by an New York City police officer, who found her alone on the streets of NYC. She is a sweet, playful girl which Pets Alive quickly realized was deaf! This amazing, bright girl is learning hand signals from her favorite volunteers and is looking for a special family who will understand her needs and continue to work with her training. Do you have what it takes? Annie is part of the Diamonds in the Ruff program for special needs dogs. Your adoption fee is waived thanks to an investment from Petco Foundation.
