See past years!

Building doghouses for charity!

Everyone deserves a decent place to live...even man's best friend!

The 6th annual Homes for the Hounds event will take place on Saturday, September 10th, 2022 at the Will County Habitat for Humanity ReStore. We are "PAWSITIVELY" ecstatic to be celebrating 6 years!

Homes for the Hounds was created in 2016 to give the community an opportunity to experience what it's like to be on a Habitat build, but on a much smaller scale. (and celebrating our four-legged friends!) This fun event brings the community together: firemen, first responders, bankers, businesses, military, schools, families, and more. It's a great opportunity to show off your creativity by building the doghouse of your dreams while supporting a great cause!

Our Homes for the Hounds event supports the Habitat vision: "A world where everyone deserves a decent place to live"...EVEN MAN'S BEST FRIEND! Proceeds from the event support Habitat's mission of providing affordable housing in Will County and Paws-4-kids- Will County Children's Advocacy Center - Hope, Healing & Justice for Abused Children.

The doghouses will be on display for 2 weeks following the event at the Joliet ReStore. The community is invited to vote for their favorite doghouse on social media, in person, or bid on a luxury house for an opportunity to own! The doghouses are not only used for our four-legged friends, but at times the larger houses have been used as play houses and even event marketing for businesses in the past.
