Barkitecture San Antonio
The annual Barkitecture San Antonio competition invites students to showcase their dog house designs at Woodlawn Lake on May 6, 2023. All unique dog houses will be sold in a silent auction to support local pet rescue and service dog non-profits. The event is open to families and their furry companions, and will feature arts and crafts vendors, exhibits, face painting, food trucks, and more. Vendor and food truck applications are being accepted, please message the Mayor’s Fitness Council member for more information.
San Antonio is gearing up for their 6th annual Barkitecture event – a city-wide competition that challenges construction, architecture, and engineering students to design dog houses that are not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing. This year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever before with a focus on designing with pets in mind, and not just dogs – cats are also welcome.

Why Is Kritter Kommunity Your Trusted Pet Partner?
Lisa Illman is the Founder of Kritter Kommunity, LLC. Growing up, Lisa had a poodle and parakeet as family pets. She currently has a tuxedo male cat and she has had him since he was a baby kitten; so Lisa knows well the kitten lifecycle, the teenage cat lifecycle and the adult cat lifecycle (he is currently 11 years old). Prior to her cat Finnegan, Lisa had two FIV positive cats for a decade. They inspired Lisa to invent a cat enclosure so they could safely sit outside and enjoy fresh air and sunshine. She brought the product to market and eventually designed a line of portable catios; they sold on Amazon, Skymall Catalogue, Wayfair and countless other websites. Lisa understands the passion for Barkitecture! Her experience being a pet parent coupled with her business development and product management experience make her a trusted pet enthusiast partner.
