Jon Stewart Is Starting an Animal Farm Because Why Not?

Illustration for article titled Jon Stewart Is Starting an Animal Farm Because Why Not?

Jon Stewart is planning on opening an animal farm after his days on The Daily Show are over because he’s got a heart of gold and a soft spot for rescues. Can I be his second wife?


According to USA Today, Stewart, his wife Tracey and their two kids already have four dogs, two pigs, two hamsters, three rabbits, two guinea pigs, one parrot, and two fish, all rescues. Now the Stewart clan is joining up with the Farm Sanctuary officially:

The couple recently bought a farm in New Jersey with the intention of providing a home for farm animals rescued from cruelty, and in November, Tracey purchased Adopt a Farm Animal sponsorships for all of their Thanksgiving guests. Even their children are living the Farm Sanctuary life, with Tracey noting that “promises of animal shelter visits in exchange for completed homework are the norm in the Stewart household.”

According to Tracey, “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.”


If I can’t be a second wife, can they adopt me?
