ARF Facility Rental


Situated on a prominent corner in Walnut Creek, California, the ARF campus is bringing people and animals together in a family oriented park-like setting.

Building Floorplan

The ARF facility is comprised of two buildings totaling 37,700 square feet and is situated on almost 9 acres in the Shadelands Business Park in Walnut Creek. Take a look at the color-coded rooms to learn about the amazing range of activities.

The Virginia Pitchford Main Entry

ARF’s facility serves as a community center, as well as a national model, providing a resource for people of all ages to enjoy positive interactions with animals.

Visitors entering the Virginia Pitchford Main Entry are greeted by the donor wall which prominently honors leading contributors to ARF’s capital campaign. Located behind the Virginia Pitchford Main Entry, visitors will find the Lesher Foundation Multi-Use Hall, a community gathering spot for adoption fairs, educational exhibits, social events, school tours, and see ARF animals awaiting adoption in cozy, home-like dog and cat condominiums in Maddie’s Animal Care Center.

Dog and Cat Condos

ARF's animals relax in a homelike setting, making them more adoptable and able to thrive in their new homes.

Lynn & Dolores McCoskey Spay/Neuter Clinic

With the capacity to alter thousands of animals a year, ARF’s state-of-the-art clinic helps break the cycle of companion animal overpopulation in the community.

Learning Center

The Learning Center at ARF is the first interactive museum connected to a private adoption center designed to educate children about animal companions. This guided experience brings children through a pint sized veterinary office, an age appropriate pet supply shop and to "Walk in My Paws"'™ a creative play stage where children experience what it's like to be a dog or a cat in a human world.
