Ace monster Toys (AMT) is a group of individuals focus on teaching, creating and things with technology. Fix our Ferals is an organization focused on caring for and controlling the feral cat population. Here is how the two of us worked together to benefit the community during what we can expect to be a harsh El Niño storm season.
AMT raised over $300 for materials to produce 30+ shelters via a tilt.com campaign. It took 4 days to raise the funds… exceeding our 30 day goal many fold. Cats really do win the internet.
These shelters are a combination of Coroplast, a corrugated plastic, and plywood cut on our our large Computer controlled router.
The shelters provide a warm, dry and safe environment for feral cats.
The 3 piece design is light and durable and can easily be opened to clean or aid the inhabitants. It also can be quickly assembled or disassembled. While disassembled it is 3 flat pieces that are easy to store.
You can download the files to make your own shelters here. You can produce these yourself if you have access the this type of equipment. These are all based on the design by Chris Peterson from corokitty.com This would not have been possible without his work and research.
Ace Monster Toys, an Oakland 501(c)3 Non-profit organization, is making and distributing a simple and aesthetically pleasing feral cat shelters to Fix our Ferals, another 501(c)3 Non-profit organization. Chris Peterson is an industrial designer from Houston,Tx
