South LA Animal Care β€” San Pedro, CA

Architect: RADA

This 64,000 square ft animal shelter is designed to look more like a public park, rather than a kennel. With ground heating, misting systems, and natural gardens, the shelter houses over 225 dogs. A lasting feature of this kennel are the gallery-like, brightly colored rooms, showcasing the animals in way that provide a meaningful experience to potential adopters, staff, and it’s community.
