Designer and animal enthusiast Antonio Ballatore is back with a new season of Animal Cribs. The California-based designer is on a mission – one that will allow families and their animals to live together in harmony. Antonio, his team of experts and his sidekick rescue dog Edie, take transformations to a whole new level by turning dull, cramped homes and yards into awe inspiring spaces for both pets and their families. The goal? To improve the lives of pets and the people who love them. To deliver the best possible result, Antonio visits animal experts, trainers, and rescue centers to learn what all kinds of pets, from bunnies to bearded dragons, need to live healthier, happier lives. Each creation is inspired by Antonio’s love for animals, and his eye for design.
Growing up with dogs, goats, rabbits and even ducks, Antonio is right at home this season when he converts a basement into the ultimate chinchilla habitat; completes a front yard facelift for Mr. Pickles, the pot-bellied pig; designs a huge indoor basement jungle for a firefighter’s 6m python; and gives back to a farm rescue with designs to enrich the lives of goats, sheep, llamas, cows, emus, and pigs.
