Barkitecture is a custom doghouse design show, contest, silent auction and, most importantly a fundraiser! From its inception in 2005, Barkitecture has become an Austin favorite and gained national exposure. Hosted by Animal Lovers of Austin, Inc. (a 501(c)3), this architectural dog-centric event showcases prototype doghouses created by Austin’s best and brightest architects, interior designers, and builders. An event that’s fun for all ages, drawing in pooches and people alike, Barkitecture attendees and their dogs get to check out and bid on these one-of-a-kind doghouses, learn about adoption/animal advocacy opportunities, shop local vendor booths, take part in a costume contest, and do other fun activities! This year we are delighted to be partnering with Austin Pets Alive!, Lizzy’s Animal Hospice, and Meals on Wheels’ PALS Program as our beneficiaries! We are also thrilled to be hosting our event in the heart of SOCO again, thanks to Jo’s Coffee and Hotel San Jose.
Barkitecture Austin 2017 is dedicated to animal advocacy, community involvement, and helping keep Austin a no-kill city! There are several affordable/high-value levels of sponsorship to choose from and specific in-kind donations needed as well. All sponsorships/donations are tax deductible and proceeds earned from this year’s event will be donated to our beneficiaries so they can continue their amazing, nationally-recognized work. To date, Barkitecture has raised over a $130k for local animal rescue groups, and we are excited to add to that total in 2017!
Last year our sponsors enjoyed terrific publicity through our event, and this year should be even bigger and better! A few of last years sponsors’ ‘wins’:
