About Us

Funny Farm Rescue and Sanctuary is one of the largest animal rescues in the Northeastern USA and has been voted one of the TOP 10 places to visit with your family in all of New Jersey. It is a destination not to be missed and admission and parking are always FREE

We are home to over 600 rescue animals from all walks of life, everything from a friendly skunk to a 2500 lb. Red Angus Steer. Most animals roam free and come right up to you! 

We are a 501(c) 3 charity run entirely by donations and do not receive any State or Federal funding. 

Every year millions of animals in the US are impacted by abuse, neglect and abandonment and often times ultimately euthanized. At the Funny Farm we believe that every animal deserves respect, love and care. We provide a forever home to domestic, farm and exotic animals. All of the animals on our farm receive healthy nutrition, clean and safe shelter, necessary medical care, appropriate grooming and lots of love.

What We Do

Through the stories of our animals and all of you that connect with us, we create opportunities to share in the love and uniqueness of all creations and spread interest in the well-being of all animals. Going beyond the care of our animal family we are dedicated to:

  • Building a compassionate and engaged community by providing positive and meaningful experiences, volunteer opportunities, and an environment of inclusion for our local and broader online community.

  • Creating fun and interactive ways to learn about responsible animal ownership and care through books, on property camps and programs, neighborhood programs, and online experiences.

  • Raising awareness of the value of kindness and ending neglect through online and in-person experiences and corporate leadership.
