DESCRIPTION:
(from Animal Planet's press release, March 2020) While some people dream of leaving their desk jobs for one of passion, most don't go the distance, but for Dan McKernan, it was the chance to trade in a good living for a great life. In Animal Planet's newest series, SAVED BY THE BARN, premiering Saturday, Apr. 11 at 10PM ET/ PT, we'll meet Dan McKernan who picked up from his six-figure tech job in Austin, TX and left it all behind to take over his family's 140-year-old farm in Michigan and transform it into the 'Barn Sanctuary;' a sanctuary for rescued farm animals that have experienced abuse, neglect, and much more. In this exciting new series, audiences join Dan and his family as they learn the ropes of their new life on the farm, give these barnyard animals a second chance at life, and experience the compassion Dan brings to every animal in his care. In SAVED BY THE BARN, we'll tag along as Dan travels across the country to rescue barn animals including a set of roosters from Chicago who were forced to fight each other, Charlie, a blind goat; two ducklings who undergo special water therapy; Lola, a goat who needs prosthetics for her back hooves, and many others farm animals that get the opportunity to be integrating into a new life at the Barn Sanctuary. Viewers will fall in love with Dan and his family, be inspired by the animals, relish in the rescues and rehabilitation, and delight at the warmth and humor it takes all in a day's work!
