Barkitecture IV is a gala event and competition in which local contractors, architects, developers, designers and creative supporters compete to create unique, custom-designed doghouses, cat furniture, bird roosts and slinky reptiles habitats. Barkitecture IV's goal is to raise much needed operational funds. These funds will assist us in caring for the animals and for outreach to build awareness of the plight of the many homeless animals available for adoption at the Benicia Vallejo Humane Society.

Barkitecture IV teams are now forming and the competition will be fierce. Dog, cat, bird and reptile teams are building habitats to delight the sophisticated canines, felines, feathered friends and slinky reptiles we love. Entry packets for Barkitecture IV are available from Humane Services Director, Peter Wilson at 707.645.7905 ext 113 or at the Humane Society and also online at "The entries are more amazing each year.
