Brazos Bark and Build is a community-wide dog house design competition held at Wiener Fest in Wolf Pen Creek on October 4th. The dog houses will also be on display and open for auction the week prior at Post Oak Mall, starting on September 26th. This event seeks to spread awareness and raise money for Aggieland Humane Society. There are many opportunities for you to get involved, be that as a builder, sponsor, volunteer, or bidder! If you (or your canine friend) has an interest in design or dogs, please support this local effort to help our community’s homeless pets.
