So now that Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show, he has time…for his new FARM! Yeah. It’s been reported that the longtime anchor and his wife Tracy McShane are planning on opening an animal farm for rescues!
The two just purchased a farm in New Jersey to provide a home for farm animals rescued from cruelty, and are joining forces with the Farm Sanctuary to make this adorable dream a reality.
And they already have a bunch to start this thing up! Along with their two children, the family owns four dogs, two pigs, two hamsters, three rabbits, two guinea pigs, one parrot, and two fish. All, of course, are rescues.
If you still want a look into the Stewart/McShane house, Tracy says that the norm for the kids are promising animal visits in exchange for getting homework done. Which is…the best thing I’ve ever heard.
“The joy of interacting with animals as friends instead of using them for human consumption is life-changing. A trip to Farm Sanctuary should be on everyone’s to-do list, but you can also bring a little bit of sanctuary home when you sponsor an animal through the Adopt a Farm Animal Program.”
Another reason to love Jon Stewart and his fam!
