In our 30 years of serving the state of Florida and beyond, we have been fortunate to be a part of many great companies, organizations and landmarks. In our three decades, we have been involved in projects both large and small, both locally and throughout the United States.

Here at Awning Works, custom designing modern shade is one of our specialties. That’s why Best Friends Pet Care at Walt Disney World gave us a call when they were looking for more than just a simple awning. We were able to combine practicality with unique style for a creative take on modern shade that specifically suited Best Friends Pet Care to provide an inviting welcome for guests from around the world. The pet resort includes 17,000 square feet of indoor space, 10,000 of covered outdoor play areas, as well as a 25,000 square foot dog park.

Using a bright red outdoor performance vinyl, we customized a fabric walkway canopy that was designed to invoke the imagery of a dog’s tongue. We included integrated recessed lightning into the canopy and also designed and installed custom dog house entrances and canopies over the dog yards that went with the motif of the Walt Disney World facility of Best Friends Pet Care.
