dc.description.abstractPet overpopulation has long been stressing the shelters and undermining the bonds between people and animals. At the same time, a lot of animal shelter landscapes are in fair or poor conditions due to little attention being paid during shelter design and daily maintenance. This thesis reviews literature of interrelationships between animals, humans and the environment, develops an animal shelter landscape concept, generates guidelines from case studies, and applies them into a landscape redesign for an animal shelter in Athens, GA. The main purpose of this thesis is to explore new opportunities for landscape architecture, spread awareness of animal welfare issues, and reconnect animals with people in the animal shelter landscape.
