Carolyn McCarthy started Kamp Kanine in Oct of 2006. She is a true animal lover who is devoted to the care and happiness of the animals that visit Kamp Kanine.

After 20 years of working in Sales and Marketing, Carolyn decided to give it up for what she loved best — spending time with dogs and making a difference.

While working in Corporate America travel, was a necessary evil and I was forced to board my dogs. Often,  if I got stuck in traffic or my flight was delayed, I could not pick up my dogs,  a very frustrating experience for me and my dogs.  This is why we are open 24 hours a day! No other kennel in NJ is open 24/7 or staffed 24/7. Who can say that they care about your pet and not be there?

"When you love what you do there is no daily grind! My job could not get much better. Every day I come to work and my biggest concern is to make dogs & their parents happy! While the days are long, the rewards are huge."
