Texas Shelter to Roll Out Tiny Houses for Dogs

They’ll function as housing for dogs and workspaces for people.




Tiny-home trend is taking hold at a Texas animal shelter.

Austin Pets Alive! is building cottages that “will double as comfortable and quiet housing for the most in-need dogs and workspaces for staff and volunteers,” according to a post on its Facebook page.

“The cottages will each have their own yard and be outfitted with dog-friendly seating and work spaces, as well as heat and a/c,” according to the post.


Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping to “Keep Austin No Kill.” On its Facebook page, the group states that its programs save more than 10,000 animals from euthanasia each year.

Since launching in 2017, PETS+ has won 16 major international journalism awards for its publication and website. Contact PETS+'s editors at
