The Pet Friendly House
The Pet Friendly House Project involves constructing and designing a home for the needs and comforts of the pet-owning family as well as their pets. Through this process we intend to raise awareness and funds for several great causes that are important to us.
Creating The Pet Friendly House will be a lot of fun, however we also have a purpose. Once the house is is completed, it will be opened to the media and public and then sold. All profits from the sale of the house will be donated to 4 worthy causes… more
To create a house that will make living with pets easier and more enjoyable for the modern family. Products, features and services will be showcased from the planning and building stages of the home all the way through to completion…
The Pet Friendly House will open to the public and media for one month as a show home. During this time all will be invited to experience several entertaining and interactive events for the whole family!
IT’S BEYOND MEDIA FRIENDLY
The Ultimate Durability Test – This test is fit for reality television!
We will intentionally get this brand new home dirty. A dozen dogs will be taken to the river and allowed to get filthy. We will then bring them back and, encouraged by tennis balls, let them have some fun in this brand new home. We intend to prove that the floors, walls and furnishings can stand it, and no stain is too tough!
- Chefs Brought In To Cook for the Dog
- Ultimate Doogie Shower
- Did you know this house will contain a beautiful 275 gallon aquarium
- Amazing Giveaways – A lot of generous companies in the pet and home verticals have offered products/services for the project… this means we will have a pile of things to give away
We are excited to give back to some of the wonderful people and organizations who we believe have given and done so much for others.
100% of all proceeds from the Pet Friendly House project will be donated equally amongst our selected charities…
This project would not be possible without the remarkable care and support of the Kidney Foundation. Their organ donor program saves and enriches many lives, including the one of David Beart, Founder and President of ProfessorsHouse.com and the Pet Friendly House Project. David received a kidney transplant at the Foothills Hospital on April 7th, 2010 thanks to a donation from his wonderful sister.
Pound Rescue Okotoks Alberta
This is a volunteer-run organization. 100 % of all donations go directly toward the care of the animals and are used for items such as veterinary care, spaying and neutering, vaccinations, food, etc. In our books this is a very worthy group for our donations and also a valuable asset to the local Okotoks community.
Autism Assistance Dog Guides
The Autism Assistance Dog Guides program was implemented to help families and children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Zane Wooton is one of many children with ASD who is on the wait list for a Dog Guide. Our donation will contribute to the high costs associated with the time, training and care required to make this match possible.
Behind the Smile
BehindTheSmile.ca was started after Zane Wootton was diagnosed with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), as a way for his Mom to share her journey and also help educate other single Mom’s and families who’s children share the same disorder. Our donation will contribute to Zane’s therapies and materials, a lot of which are above and beyond the funding that is available…
Our Goal is to raise $50,000 for Charities
We are happy to say that 125 pet product manufactures from 11 countries have committed to supplying pet products for the project; another 17 magazines will cover it…. and we haven’t even started yet!!!
