The Seeing Eye – Morristown, NJ


The Seeing Eye in Morristown, New Jersey is the oldest guide dog school in the world. rfa was hired to consolidate, upgrade, and expand kenneling facilities on this renowned organization's 60-acre campus. The 10,000 SF Harris Canine Pavilion houses 48 dogs in four separate suites with comfortable indoor resting runs and outdoor exercise runs. The design of the Pavilion not only meets the organization's goals but also creates a prominent architectural feature celebrating The Seeing Eye's commitment to loving care and instruction for all participants in the program. Every inch of the kennel spaces was designed to facilitate state-of-the-art animal care, incorporating aseptic, easily-maintained finishes and sophisticated waste removal as well as noise and odor control measures. Because group exercise and play are key elements of the program, generous outdoor covered exercise yards conveniently shelter dogs from hot sun and inclement weather.
