AbstractA collapsible, easily relocatable structure useable for various different purposes but illustrated as an animal shelter for dogs and other animals such shelter has saddle-type, gabled roof joined to side wall panels and formed of opposed, flat sloping roof panels hingedly to the respective side wall panels and hingedly secured centrally at the roof ridge. A floor is formed of flat panels hingedly joined to the side wall panels and hingedly secured centrally. Opposite ends are each formed of a pair of flat end panels hingedly secured to the side wall panels having an opening for ingress and egress of an animal. The shelter is collapsible by outward folding of the roof and floor panels and inward folding of the end panels. A cord arrangement locks the panels in unfolded configuration for maintaining the shelter in an erected condition.
