The MEOW Foundation

  • Building Description – Animal Shelter
  • Building Location – Calgary, Alberta
  • Size – 623 sq.m. (6,705 sq.ft.), Renovation
  • Design Response – The MEOW Foundation (Make Each One Wanted) is a no-kill shelter for stray, abandoned and rescue cats. The new shelter is now located in a small Office/industrial building that MEOW had purchased. BCW created a design in conjunction with MEOW staff to utilize a limited budget and to meet a deadline to vacate their former premises. The 2-storey facility features nine adoption suites of various sizes, and three holding rooms for the trap/neuter/return program and for cats new to the facility. There is also a large food preparation area on each floor, staff offices, a visitor reception area, a multi-purpose meeting room and a large 2-level storage bay.
