Everybody wants to do their bit to help animals, but not everybody has the power to do so. However, ex-host of The Daily Show Jon Stewart and his wife Tracey Stewart are doing their bit for us.
Jon Stewart turned his 12-acre farm into a haven for animals back in 2015, but it is doing better than ever. Here’s how he and his wife Tracey announced it:
“We bought a farm in New Jersey with the intention of starting a farm sanctuary of our own with an educational center, but what I’m announcing tonight is that our farm is actually going to be the New Jersey branch of Farm Sanctuary. We’re going to build new advocates, new curious learners, and new leaders for this very important movement,” said Tracey.
Jon also talked about it when he hosted the Emmy’s. “I have been off of television for six weeks, seven weeks, whatever it is. This is the first applause I’ve heard. It is a barren wasteland out there,” he told the 2015 Emmy’s audience. “You get used to craft services. Out in the world, there are tables with food — but you can’t take it. It costs money, and very little of it is gluten-free or vegan.”
What’s more, the farm has saved many animals in its time. They saved two goats from a railway track, as well as a bull and loads of pigs! The couple kept pigs before the collaboration with Farm Sanctuary, but their load has increased. Jon Stewart has obviously been doing a lot of animal welfare work in his free time. It’s amazing to see.
