NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Humane Society of Louisiana is turning to architects, design students and anyone with eye for canine accommodations to take part in its latest project.

New Orleans CityBusiness reports (https://bit.ly/1ktOPHQ) the group’s inaugural “Barkitecture Competition” calls for participants to construct customized doghouses for puppies in need. Entrants are encouraged to work in teams of two to four people.

All doghouse submitted must have a floor, three walls, a roof and they must be waterproof.

Interested individuals and teams can register online through Aug. 1 at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/barkitecture-competition-tickets-11744376747

Winners will be recognized in three different categories: People’s Choice, Most Unique and Best in Show. All doghouses will be used at the Humane Society of Louisiana’s no-kill animal sanctuary in Mount Hernon.

Each team, other than student entrants, must submit a $25 non-refundable registration fee. All proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Louisiana.

Each doghouse must be delivered to Lakeside Mall between 8 a.m. and noon Aug. 10. There are no size restrictions, and the doghouses may be partially deconstructed if they cannot fit through the mall’s doors.

On Aug. 16, a panel of celebrity judges will choose the top dog house in each category, except for the People’s Choice award.
