Stand Up for Animals (SUFA) needed a new animal shelter to replace the aging, over-crowded and under equipped shelter owned by the Town of Westerly, RI. Working with the Town of Westerly and SUFA, Parker Construction and Kite Architects have built the most up-to-date, efficient, animal friendly, and people friendly shelter.
This 7,000 square foot animal shelter features 24 kennels with indoor/outdoor areas as well as stacks of cat condos. The cats have a 19 by 10 foot outdoor play area. It employs some green building technology and can serve as an emergency shelter during a hurricane or other natural disaster.
