Participating in the Humane Society of San Bernardino Valley's "Sit, Stay and Nibble" event, which included food, wine, a silent auction and a live auction of custom decorated doghouses. One of ACU's entries, "Rustic Puppy Dreams" was completed by its construction department and resembled a mountain cabin (see photo). The doghouse was auctioned off for $650 and won in the category of Most Original and overall was named Best in Show. ACU's marketing department also completed a doghouse called, "The Boat House" which had a nautical theme and was auctioned for $125. PSB-The Marketing Supersource designed a "Hawaiian Paradise" doghouse, a tiki hut complete with a thatch roof and bamboo walls that garnered $150 in the auction.
All of the doghouses were displayed at a local shopping mall for a few weeks prior to the auction. Any mall visitor could vote in the many categories as well as make donations to the Humane Society.
