About Kirk & Anita

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Kirk and Anita’s Furry Farm is located in beautiful Mays Landing, NJ on a 12 acre wooded lot that includes a fun trail for doggy walks. We have a large fenced in area with doggie pools to cool down your pet during the hot summer months, as well as a beautiful pond full of koi fish where your dog can relax and enjoy the warm sun. (The pond is fenced and inaccessible from guest dogs unless supervised). On our farm we have chickens for organic eggs, in a separate area.
You can relax knowing that your dogs are safe and secure with all the comforts of a loving home. Our home is air-conditioned on hot days and is always toasty warm in the winter. While at their stay, doggies will receive lots of positive praise, kisses and belly rubs. Your dogs will be bathed before their return home. We use natural shampoos fragranced with organic essential oils. Our goal is to provide a safe and relaxing stay for your pets while you are away.

Special Services:
Administration of medication (oral and liquid)
Photos and updates provided while your doggie is on vacation
Special needs may be accommodated upon request (ie: music for dogs with separation anxiety)

About Kirk and Anita
We have a deep passion and love for animals. We take pride and joy in rescuing animals of neglect or abandonment. Growing up on a farm has given a tremendous amount of exposure and experience with various animals. This love has grown each year. My husband, who is a retired police officer, and myself who practices as a therapist and social worker have had dogs all our life.
Together, we have always had a passion for taking care of animals. After our marriage in 2008, we both became involved in animal advocacy and animal rescue work. We love all animals, not just our own. Taking part in the rescue of other animals and ensuring appropriate placement gives us pride and joy. You can trust that your pets are in the hands of sincere and loving people.

Where do I begin with Kirk and Anita? Ok, I'll start with this. I decided at the last minute that I didn't want my Pariss to stay at a usual kennel. I was leaving to go away a day before I found dogvacay and was up until about 1 in the morning I was leaving to go away a day before I found dogvacay and was up until about 1 in the morning reading reviews and how to get in on this. I needed six days and the first host denied me because of the short notice and we were predicted a Noreaster the very next day! However, when I saw Kirk and Anita's page after the first denial I went for them. They had the availability that I needed and were my next best choice! I was concerned myself because of the short notice and not to mention the storm that was coming. To my surprise when I woke up that late morning I saw that they accepted my request!! Woopie!! I gave Kirk a call explained to him what I needed and immediately I felt very good about my choice. I was able to drop my Pariss off that day! We met, and we a had a meet and greet for about a little over a hour. I was made to feel very comfortable with leaving Pariss. He met me at my car when I pulled up. He showed me the outside of his home (which is lovely for ANY PET) and then the inside which was SUPER, DUPER BEAUTIFUL!!! I met his wife which was very sweet and he introduced his pets one by one to myself and Pariss so that we had a feel of everyone. These two truly have a love and passion for pets! They took many pictures and kept me well informed of my baby's progress! I would highly recommend them to anyone! Pariss enjoyed!

This was Shelby's second stay at the furry farm and she had a blast. She loves playing with all the other dogs, and Kirk and Anita kept us well updated with pictures and videos. She came home happy, tired, and smelling awesome (Thanks for the updated with pictures and videos. She came home happy, tired, and smelling awesome (Thanks for the bath!!). Whenever my husband and I are going away near that area we think of Kirk and Anita to watch our pup first now.
