Home for the Holidays
Luxury Dog Homes and Adoption Pavilion

16 to December 23
NorthPark Center in Dallas

The sky was the limit for these luxury dog houses...and for the dogs (and cats!) that make any house a home. The SPCA of Texas presented the 25th annual Home for the Holidays event at NorthPark Center from November 16 through December 23, 2015. This signature event brought shoppers and pet lovers together to raise awareness for homeless pets, and to help these wonderful animals find a forever, loving family. Home for the Holidays kicked off November 16, 2015, with eighteen custom made dog houses that were raffled off through December 7, 2015. These one of a kind dog houses were built by American Institute of Architects and TEXO, The Construction Association members through their Bark + Build competition.

Bark + Build winners included:

  • Enviro Dog Award: Malone Maxwell Borson Architects and Manhattan Construction Group for the Canine Eco-Cabin.
  • Teacup Pup Award: BOKA Powell and T&G Constructors for the Midcentury K9 House.
  • Big Dog Award: BRW and Sedalco Construction Services for the Canine Cabana.
  • Most Innovative Award: OMNIPLAN and Abstract Construction for the Wilson Mansion.
  • Hot Dog Award (runner up): The Beck Group and Alliance Glazing Technologies for the Pup Pavilion.
  • Best in Show (1st place): GFF and Ridgemont Commercial Construction for Benchy Bungalow.
  • Top Dog (People's Choice): Rogers O'Brien Construction and Mohment for The Pad.

The Adoption Plaza opened on Black Friday and ran through December 23, 2015. We featured adoptable cats and dogs at NorthPark Center every day from noon to six.

Since our first year of Home for the Holidays in 1990, over 10,000 pets have been adopted. Children who came with their parents and adopted a pet, are now coming back as adults with their families and adopting again. This event is a holiday tradition for many families here in North Texas.

All money raised goes towards our important mission to rescue, heal, and find loving homes for vulnerable animals.
