WHAT IS BARKITECTURE?

Since its inception in 2005, Barkitecture has become an Austin favorite, and is gaining national exposure. Presented by Animal Lovers of Austin, Inc., this architectural dog-centric fundraiser showcases doghouses created by some of Austinís best and brightest architects, designers and builders. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on these unique doghouses, play at the "pup-stop", participate in a Lofty Dog Howl-o-Ween costume contest, learn about adoption opportunities from local area rescue groups, shop at local vendor booths, let your pup enjoy a spa experience at our exclusive puppy "SPAW" and more.
