Is it ok to keep brooder in garage?

We will soon be first time chick raisers. We are in the process of building a coop and now we are collecting supplies for the brooder.
We live in Tucson and we don't want to keep the brooder in the house because our house is really hot already and we have dogs, cats and small children. We have a garage that does not yet have a garage door so it's basically like a big carport. The plan at this time is to keep the brooder (converted dog crate) on top of a table in the garage. Wondering if this will be sufficient....
Sure the location would be fine, Could be outside in the shade for that matter as long as it's covered to prevent dew, or the rare chance of rain. One aspect to consider would be the wire size of a kennel. Could a stray cat reach a paw in and snag one?
Have a good day.
