I don't think you're going to find an air purifier that will help eliminate pet fur. Dust and dander, yes, but not the actual fur. A vacuum would help immensely though as will daily brushing. Fur normally makes it to the counter tops and furniture when there's too much on the floor (especially near heating/air conditioning vents). When I notice hairs on kitchen surfaces, I'll always find lots stuck to my sleeves as I've just finished playing/petting the dogs so I'm the one who got it there .

We have several Oreck air purifiers but that's for dander as family members have allergies. If any hair particles get sucked into it, they get zapped and you can see the sparks which usually sends the dogs panicking out of the room.
