Train Depot Dog House Raffle
June 30, 2012
Community Connections Mentoring is currently raffling a one-of-a-kind dog house sure to appeal to railroad enthusiasts and dog lovers alike. The dog house, which was created by retired railroader and mentor Doyce Williams, is an almost exact replica of a 1930s-1940s era train depot.
The dog house measures 62"x48"x35" (with an interior dimension of approximately 48"x30"), and it will easily fit a large dog or two smaller ones. The dog house is yellow with brown trim, and the shingles are green. The walls, floor and ceiling are fully insulated and sealed. This dog house has been built to the same standards as a residential home, so it weighs about 150-175 pounds. The base is made with treated lumber so that it won't rot if it gets wet.
The dog house will be on display at the Golden Spike Tower & Visitor's Center until July 16. It will then be moved to Westfield Small Animal Clinic for two weeks. Future locations will be announced on the Community Connections website (www.communityconnectionslc.org
). Additional info and photos can be found on the mentoring program's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/CCMentoring
Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. The proceeds will benefit Community Connections Mentoring. The final drawing will take place on Sept. 16 during Rail Fest 2012. It is estimated that this custom-made dog house would easily sell for $1,000 or more. If you would like to purchase a ticket for a chance to win this one-of-a-kind dog house for only $5, call at 308-696-0976.
