About Us

Dear Friends,

"Shelter Planners of America" is known nationwide as the most experienced and skilled shelter consulting service you can obtain. Our firm has been doing shelter planning for over 30 years and have worked with over 700 shelters on studies, remodeling and totally new facilities. Our founder was in charge of all shelter consulting for the HSUS for 11 years. For the past 10 years he served as Director of Planning and Design for Shelter Planners of America.
revpaws As a first step in planning a new shelter, We will personally develop your Needs Assessment Study. Then the second step will involve the layout of your shelter plan. The plan will reflect all of your needs and wishes and assure that your new building is the best it can be. The plan will be laid out to comply with applicable building code.

Our founder has the unique background of having managed four shelters in addition to training and years of professional experience in architecture. It is this ability to understand your specialized daily operational needs that allows your new shelter to really work the way you expect and not surprise you with design problems once your new building is constructed.

We would be pleased to provide you guidance on how to get started with your new shelter project at no cost or obligation.

We look forward to hearing from you.
