Animal Shelter Case Notes

SPCA of Texas
Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center

Dallas, Texas

The Design Learned team worked with Dallas-based firm, Hinojosa, Architecture & Interiors on this innovative $8.5 million renovation project for the SPCA of Texas.

The designers took a former industrial complex and transformed it into a 39,000 square foot innovative and visually unique animal shelter. When it opened in January of 2012, it more than doubled the space of the previous facility.

DLI engineers designed the intricate mechanical and plumbing features for the new shelter, with its fun retail-style atmosphere — calculated to increase the adoption rate for a humane organization which has previously found homes for nearly 4,000 displaced animals each year.
