Six family furbabies from the Tulsa area live high living thanks to the efforts of local architectural talent.
The recently held Tulsa SPCA is a second annual fundraising contest for PAWsh Palaces that gives architects, builders, and student designers the opportunity to create unique dog houses and cat patios for a good cause.
The event celebrates the art of design, student education, and the impact of pet adoption by the SPCA.
From November 2nd to December 2nd, four professional entries and two student builds were on view. 7 at various Southern Agriculture locations in the area including Owasso, as well as Tulsa and Broken Arrow.
Southern Agriculture in Owasso showed the dog house “Rosewood Retreat” – a side table made of redwood and other exotic woods with a magazine holder, drawers and a planted area. Davies Architects acted as designer and Cowen Construction acted as builder.
“We wanted it to be a fun little dog house, a functional piece of furniture,” said Anna Davies, vice president at Davies Architects. “We … love to be part of things that help the community … we enjoy it.”
Aaron Prince, deputy general manager of the Owasso store, said he was thrilled to host the Rosewood Retreat, which received a lot of attention and support from passers-by.
