With Los Angeles being home to the largest population of cat strays in the U.S.—at least 3 million to be exact—Architects for Animals has stepped in to help out FixNation, a non-profit organization that neuters stray cats for free. This year, the Giving Shelter exhibit auctioned off 13 cat shelters designed by LA’s top architect and designers to help raise funds for the homeless felines.

The Giving Shelter exhibit is a yearly event, but every year, architects and designers become more creative with the cat shelters—letting cats interact with their shelters more. The recently held event took place at the HermanMiller Showroom in Culver City last October 19. Projects from Abramson Teiger Architects, d3architecture, ES-EN-EM, HLW, HKS, HOK, Perkins + Will, Knowhow Shop, Kollin Altomare Architects, RNL now Stantec, Standard Architecture | Design, and Formation Association/Terremoto Landscape/Arktura participated this year.

Further, 28 cat food bowls were also put on display. These food bowls were designed by celebrities who love cats like Clint Eastwood, Charlize Theron, Jay Leno, William Shatner, just to name a few. The food bowls were then made available for purchase online.
