The Humane Society of Louisiana


AUGUST 10TH – 16TH at Lakeside Shopping Center
Help us put a ‘woof' over a homeless dog’s head!

Calling all Barkitects!!
Carpenters, architects, designers, students, groups and dog lovers of all kinds are invited. Get creative, pick up a hammer and get busy to help dogs in need.

The Objective:
Build a one-of-a-kind, designer dog house for a rescued pup awaiting a loving home. From canine condos to puppy palaces, the only limitation is your creativity. All houses will be used to shelter Humane Society of Louisiana dogs awaiting homes or will be auctioned to support our dog protection programs.

The fee is $25, which must be paid by August 5th. Register HERE.

The Basics:
At a minimum, all houses must have a floor, 3 walls and a roof. They must also be waterproof.
Dog houses will be on display at Lakeside Shopping Center during the week of August 10th – 16th. Winners will be announced following the "Strut for Pups' walk in Lakeside Mall on August 16th.
Each house will be displayed beside a placard showing the entrant’s name and/or business and logo. Sponsorships are also available.
Prize categories are Most Unique, Best in Show, and the People’s Choice.
Additional information on set-up and other details will be provided to all participants.
