National Association of the Remodeling Industry contractors’ creative
custom dog houses benefit animal welfare agency
Nov. 21, Des Plaines, IL. —Need a gift for Fido? “Home for the Holidays” offer participants an opportunity to enter, vote and (possibly) win one of six luxury dog homes for a furry friend as part of a holiday raffle, today through Dec. 8th. The tail-waggin' good dog houses were constructed by members of The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) Greater Dallas chapter and benefit the SPCA of Texas which rescues, heals and finds homes for abused and neglected animals.
The dog homes are on display through Dec. 8th at NorthPark Center, 8687 N. Central Expy, Dallas, TX. Those of you not in the Dallas area can view photos and descriptions of the houses, and cast your vote online by purchasing raffle tickets ($5 each or 5 for $20) at www.spca.org. There will be a winner for each dog house on display. The drawing for each winner is on Tuesday, Dec. 9 and winners need not be present to win. At the time of the drawing, the dog house that received the most number of raffle ticket entries will win the “Top Dog Award.”
The entries, designed and built by NARI Greater Dallas members, include: B’Wow House: Sardone Construction; The Barkalow: CB Construction Company; Rubber Ruff: Marvelous Home Makeovers; High-Tech Home of the Holiday Hounds: Traver Construction; New Age: JRHammel Construction Services; Den Haus 1 and Den Haus 2: USI Remodeling.
All raffle proceeds benefit the SPCA of Texas. In the past two years, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry Greater Dallas Chapter, with its custom dog houses, in collaboration with NorthPark Mall, have helped raise more than $50,000 for the SPCA of Texas. NorthPark Center offers an unparalleled luxury shopping experience with over 235 unique retailers, restaurants and legendary department stores. The SPCA of Texas is the leading, comprehensive animal welfare agency in North Texas with two shelters and three spay/neuter clinics located in Dallas and McKinney.
