ARF can provide tables, seating, A/V systems, kitchen preparation area, reserved parking and even dog agility equipment to help make your event a success.

Main Building

People Connect Classroom
The larger of the rooms available in the People Connect wing, this lively, nearly 760 square foot room has Wi-Fi, drop down screen, whiteboard, access to a private 800 square foot courtyard, and a riveting view of the kitty condos. Suitable for a gathering of up to 40 people, it includes two charming kiosks: one depicting the exciting adventures of the ARF Patrol, the other the mysterious scratching post that plays a key role in the ARF Patrol’s adventures.

People Connect Presentation Room
With Wi-Fi, a drop down screen, and room for 35 people, the 480 square foot Presentation Room provides the perfect setting for launching that special proposal. A white board and access to a 600 square foot landscaped courtyard complete the scene.

This intimate setting with the capacity for 30, provides a meeting table that seats 25, white board and Wi-Fi capability. Glass walls look out to a private courtyard where you can step out for a breath of fresh air while discussing your organization's future plans.

Lesher Community Hall
This spacious plant filled atrium is ideal for receptions or tastings for up to 300 people. Your guests can view animals available for adoption while meandering among the glass walled condos. Lesher Community Hall has Wi-Fi and is also available with seating.

Training Facility

Nestlé Purina Training Pavilion
With two soaring walls of windows, the Pavilion is full of natural light. Its 3,000 feet of empty space is a virtual blank canvas for your event. The rubber flooring helps cushion high heels or tender paws and reduces echo-effects common in most similar buildings. An additional 1000 square feet of adjacent patio space is also available. The Pavilion has its own restroom facilities and access to the Training Field.

Training Field
At 9,200 square feet, with a little more than 4,100 square feet in the central lawn area, the training field is suitable for any outdoor event, from picnics to agility competitions. Chinese elms and pear trees provide cool shade during the day; perimeter lampposts provide ambient lighting at night. A concrete path surrounds the lawn area and lush plantings add to the park-like atmosphere. Agility equipment available for rent.
