Vallejo, CA (PRWEB) February 16, 2009
Barkitecture is not just two great fundraising events, it is also a competition in which businesses, community groups, neighborhood groups and individuals compete to create unique, custom designed dog domiciles, dog & cat furniture, bird roosts and multiple pet domiciles. The festivities include music, catered cuisine, a premium raffle and a grand silent & live auction of items created exclusively for Barkitecture through gifts generously donated by local businesses.
The goal of Barkitecture is to raise much-needed operational funds to care for the animals and for outreach to build awareness of the plight of the many homeless dogs, cats, other animals available for adoption and helped through the Benicia Vallejo Humane Society.
Entry Packets for Barkitecture are available from Director of Humane Services, Peter Wilson at 707.645.7905 ext 113 or at the Humane Society and also online at http://www.barkitecture.net
