Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Humane Society

Location: Santa Fe, New Mexico

The Santa Fe Humane Society’s vision and ambitious goal included building a shelter to serve as a national model for the humane care of animals.  They wanted an animal-centric campus that matched their desire to treat animals with compassion, respect and dignity.  Our collaboration with the humane society was a remarkable opportunity for us to turn into reality many of the innovative design concepts we had developed for reducing stress and animal-friendly environments.

“Animal Arts knows how to design spaces that truly consider what animals hear, what they smell, what they see – and what can help make them more comfortable.”
– Kate Rindy, Executive Director during design and construction, Santa Fe Humane Society and Animal Shelter
