Departing host of “The Daily Show” will be knee deep into his next career with his family’s business.
It is no secret how Jon Stewart feels about the standard deplorable conditions of factory farms. He has done shows roasting New Jersey Governor Chris Christie about his veto of pig gestation crates as a ploy to win over Iowa versus New Jersey voters and interviewed Farm Sanctuary founder Gene Bauer about changing to a plant based diet.
Stewart’s wife, Tracey is an animal activist and vegan. She shares her inspirations on the website, Moomah the Magazine and her upcoming book, “Do Unto Animals,” mission to change how we interact with animals.
So it is really not a surprise that Jon and Tracey have purchased a place for their farm animal rescues. Thus his new job… master pooper scooper.

It’s pretty much the understatement of the century to say that Jon Stewart, departing host of The Daily Show, has a lot of fans. However, Stewart will gain some new fans as he prepares for his post-TV days, and a lot of them will be furry. Stewart and his wife, Tracey, have purchased a New Jersey farm and plan to turn it into an animal sanctuary, where rescued farm animals can live out their natural lives in peace. Can you hear the collective “awwww” from animal-loving fans of The Daily Show?
This isn’t a whim for the Stewarts. The pair have been compassionate friends of animals for many years, and Tracey was quoted in a press release saying that “promises of animal shelter visits in exchange for completed homework are the norm in the Stewart household.” Raising their two children to have respect and compassion for animals is a key part of the Stewarts’ efforts to ensure that future generations of animals will have the protections they deserve. They’ve also adopted a menagerie of animals as a family over the years, including four dogs, two horses, two pigs, three rabbits, two guinea pigs, two hamsters, one parrot and two fish who, as Tracey told USA Today, were “all rescues.”
