Dog Friendly Events Happening in Austin This November

Barkitecture – Saturday, November 4th    12:00PM – 4:00PM


This is an event that Grocery Pup will sponsor and we are mega excited about it. Barkitecture 2017 presented by Concierge Auctions 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, Barkitecture is partnering with Austin Pets Alive!Lizzy’s Animal Hospice, and Meals on Wheels Central Texas PALS Program as its beneficiaries! The event is hosted at Jo’s Coffee and Hotel San Jose

By supporting Bark For Life, you help the American Cancer Society save lives and free the world from the pain and suffering of cancer. Funds raised help the American Cancer Society provide free information and support for people facing the disease today, and fund cancer research that will help protect future generations.
