3 Minutes of Joy: Barn Sanctuary

Updated: Apr 13, 2021

Dan McKernan quit his job at a tech company in Texas and moved back to the 140-year-old family farm in Michigan to start an animal sanctuary. Together with his wise father, Tom, his lovable twin brother, Chris, and a whole team of dedicated staff, he is working hard to give disabled, injured, abandoned or needy farm animals a second chance at a happy and fulfilling life at Barn Sanctuary.

“Saved by the Barn,” Animal Planet’s popular 12-episode series debuted in March 2020 and follows the day-to-day adventures of Barn Sanctuary’s more than 100 happily rescued residents.
