Barn Sanctuary Show to Air on Animal Planet

April 25, 2019

Chelsea, Michigan – Barn Sanctuary in association with High Noon Entertainment (producer of HGTV’s hit show Fixer Upper) begins filming this month for a new Animal Planet TV show set to air at the end of 2019.

“All of us at Barn Sanctuary are thrilled to open our barn doors to Animal Planet’s millions of viewers,” said Dan McKernan, Founder of Barn Sanctuary. “This show will give farmed animals the chance to be seen in a different light as we rescue, rehabilitate, and provide a loving home to abused and neglected farmed animals.”

“There is an enormous and rare opportunity to show the world who these incredible animals are, and we’re touched by the outpouring of excitement for this show,” said Kelly Holt, Executive Director of Barn Sanctuary. “The lifesaving work we do at Barn Sanctuary will undoubtedly capture the hearts of millions, and we’re grateful to Animal Planet for the opportunity.”

About The Show
Dan McKernan turned his back on city life, returning to rural Michigan to convert his family’s generations-old farm into a rescue for barnyard animals – with absolutely no experience. “Barn Sanctuary” (wt) features Dan and his family, reunited, and joining together around a common goal: to save farm animals from perilous situations and give them a place to live out their natural lives in safety and peace. “Barn Sanctuary” follows heartwarming rescue stories, unique medical cases, charismatic characters – both human and animal – while shining a light on modern day farm life, with a distinctive twist. Animal Planet viewers will be inspired and entertained by the animal stories, relish in the rescues and rehabilitations, and delight at the warmth, humor and hard work it takes for Dan and his family and friends to get it all done. Humor meets heart as Dan trades a good living for a great life.
