SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Twelve design teams have created swanky pet palaces for the Design for Dogs event this Friday. The event is a silent auction and fundraiser for the Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL).

The fancy dog houses will be auctioned off with proceeds going to the AAWL, the state's oldest and largest no-kill shelter. AAWL reportedly saves more than 4,500 homeless pets every year.

This is the fourth annual Design for Dogs event, formerly called Wine for Woofs, Beer for Barks, and it will be held at the Facings of America showroom on Friday, Feb. 23 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Guests will be able to view the over-the-top dog houses and bid on them in a silent auction. The doghouses will also compete for 'Best in Show'.
