The idea of Support for the wanderers, is to build shelters for stray dogs, by recycling old billboards. These shelters blend into the landscape, since all you can see is a billboard against the wall. When the weather conditions are complicated, because it is raining or it is too hot, passers-by can then pull on the panel to deploy the shelter.
