Barkitecture is not just two great fundraising events, it is also a competition in which local 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.

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 or helped through the Benicia Vallejo Humane Society.

Over the past year the Benicia Vallejo Humane Society has adopted 433 animals, spayed and neutered 940 animals. There has been an increase the number of animals cared for thanks to the on going support of the community through volunteer efforts and the donations which support the work of the Benicia Vallejo Humane Society.
