First Annual “Bark Prize” to Benefit the BISSELL Pet Foundation

It is not too late to show your support for furry friends and the BISSELL Pet Foundation by either using your skills—or your wallet—at the first ever “Bark Prize” event at DeVos Place.

Bark Prize 2013 is a one of a kind charity event that will feature artistic doghouses on display at this year’s West Michigan Home & Garden Show. During the show the doghouses will be auctioned off, and 100% of the proceeds will go to the BISSELL Pet Foundation (to help homeless pets in West Michigan). The doghouses will also be judged by the public for the coveted title of ‘Best in Show’ (2nd and 3rd place will also be awarded). In addition, the winner will receive a line of BISSELL Commercial products valued at $750.00!

Calling all builders—and bidders!

If you are a builder, architect, artist, or designer, we encourage you to enter Bark Prize 2013 and create one of these special furry habitats! Click here for details and rules of participation for building one of these spectacular houses (entry forms must be submitted on or before January 20, 2013).

If you aren’t handy with a hammer, don’t fret. You can still join in by bidding for one of these cool doghouses for your own pooch! All of these creations will be up for auction during the home show, and don’t forget ALL proceeds go to the BISSELL Pet Foundation!

The West Michigan Home & Garden Show takes place at DeVos Place Thursday, February 28 – Sunday, March 3, 2013. We hope you will join us for this canine cause!
