Del Conca USA donates tiled dog house to Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando

The Tile Council of North America, Inc. (TCNA) members donated tiled doghouses to the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando at Coverings 2021 in Orlando, FL..
As the go-to pet experts across Central Florida, the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando does good things for dogs and cats and the people who love them. Founded in 1937 as the Orlando Humane Society, its goal is to provide compassionate services for pets and to be leaders in innovative animal care and veterinary medicine.
Each year thousands of homeless dogs and cats turn to the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando for caring, compassion, and hope through its animal shelters, veterinary and disaster response services, and a pet food pantry for dogs and cats in need. In addition to providing housing and care, Pet Alliance works to develop progressive and innovative programs that help keep pets and people together.

“We are grateful to our members for creating these gorgeous works of art, which demonstrate another creative way tile can be used to beautify a space,” said TCNA Marketing Director, Kathy Meyer. “The doghouses provide us an opportunity to help support the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando and their numerous programs that benefit pets in the Orlando area.”

“Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando is appreciative to again be chosen by TCNA as their charity partner for this project,” remarked Pet Alliance Director of Operations, Angela Miedema. “Support from TCNA and its members in this truly creative undertaking will allow us to continue to provide for the needs of the thousands of shelter pets that come to us each year. We are very thankful for their commitment to helping homeless pets!”

During Coverings 2021, the doghouses were displayed in TCNA’s booth, where a donation ceremony was held on Thursday, July 8th.

Del Conca USA’s doghouse featured tile from its Nature marble collection. The body of the house was constructed with Calacatta Gold, a marble with a beautiful, creamy white background and golden veins of various sizes. The roof was finished with Dolomite marble, a surface that represents the Italian “Zebrino marble,” rich in movement with refined linear veins.
