Our pets are like members of the family, so it’s not much of a stretch to imagine them living in houses as haute as these. The National Association of the Remodeling Industry partnered with NorthPark Center for the “Home for the Holidays” event benefiting SPCA of Texas.
So while you’re doing your holiday shopping, check out these designer dog houses, created by NARI members. They are on display November 9-25, preceding the 22nd annual SPCA adoption pavilion, which opens at NorthPark November 23.
Buy raffle tickets online or at NorthPark for a chance to win one of the 13 houses. Proceeds go to SPCA of Texas.
