9th Annual Doghouse Challenge Is On!
On Saturday, 26th November RSPCA NSW, TAFE NSW and Bunnings Warehouse will join forces once again for the 9th annual Doghouse Challenge. The Challenge showcases the designs and craftsmanship of TAFE NSW students using materials provided by Bunnings Warehouse to build doghouses for RSPCA NSW. This year’s Challenge will be hosted by Bunnings Warehouse in Hoxton Park.
TAFE student teams from the Hunter, Sydney Metropolitan, Blue Mountains and Illawarra regions will have 30 minutes to construct their doghouses, after which time judging will commence. RSPCA NSW Shelter dogs will be on hand to inspect and “evaluate” the finished products.
“We’re always really impressed with the doghouse designs,” said RSPCA NSW Animal Wellbeing Support Coordinator Hannah Burfitt. “The students work really hard and put a lot of thought into constructing houses that are suitable for and appealing to dogs."
Awards will be presented based on teamwork, design, decoration, originality and eco-friendliness, just to name a few.
The finished doghouses will be displayed at Bunnings Warehouse in Hoxton Park before being handed over to the RSPCA’s Sydney Shelter in Yagoona.
When: Saturday, 26th November 11am-2pm
Where: Bunnings Warehouse – 2 Lyn Parade, Hoxton Park
