We have six doghouse donations to our Homes with Woofs! fundraiser so far from Historic Building Company (which is building two); Matt Viau (Modern Carpentry), Vala Home Improvements (also building two), and Lu Korte. It’s going to be a great event — if you’re a designer, builder, architect, artisan, carpenter, hobbyist, whatever — maybe you’d like to donate one too? We have a target of twelve to twenty and the Ontario Humane Society has indicated it can issue tax receipts to donors.
If so, here’s some handy information from the Ontario SPCA on dimensions. (Click on the image to enlarge).
Remember, exteriors should be finished with non-leaded paint or waterproof materials, and if your doghouse is meant for outside dogs, be sure to insulate it. We don’t want our best pals to be wet or cold or get sick; we want them to be just as beautiful and joyful as their new homes! ~Peggy
