THINGS TO KNOW:

Food & Gifts

Families are welcome to bring food, beverages and cake for the party to enjoy. Delivery by local restaurants is also an option. A refrigerator is available for use. Don’t forget the plates, napkins and silverware!

Party guests can bring gifts, however due to time of programming your birthday child may not have the opportunity to open them during your two-hour block.

Many birthday parties choose to collect items and supplies for the ARLGP and the furry friends in our care. View our wish list of commonly used items >
