Pillows for Puppies

Monday, December 11th, 2006

In addition to creating the finest residential architecture in Westchester, one of Fivecat Studio’s missions is to make a difference in the lives of homeless cats and dogs. All of our family pets (five cats and a dog) are rescues and we do all we can to support the local animal rescue charities.

Every holiday season, Annmarie and the boys collect all our worn towels, pillows and blankets. Then they have a holiday party and invite all their friends to bring their unwanted linens to the house. They wrap it all up and put together a Christmas care package for the SPCA of Westchester. Its a simple way to make a difference and teach the young ones a valuable lesson on sharing and caring.
