Jon Stewart and his wife, Tracey Stewart, on Saturday confirmed that they will turn their New Jersey farm into a sanctuary for abused and neglected animals.
The Stewarts will set up their farm as a branch of Farm Sanctuary, a group that works to end inhumane farming practices that has branches in New York and California. Tracey Stewart announced the plans during a Farm Sanctuary gala on Saturday night.
"We're getting married. Farm Sanctuary and us, we're getting married," she said. "We're going to build new advocates, new curious learners, and new leaders for this very important movement."
The Stewarts' farm, Bufflehead, is already home to four pigs, two of which were rescued from the side of the road in Georgia, according to the New York Times.
Tracey Stewart recently published a book, "Do Unto Animals: A Friendly Guide to How Animals Live, and How We Can Make Their Lives Better."
