About the guest:
Jenny has been an animal advocate since the age of 18. Since the early 90’s, Jenny would occasionally volunteer her time working undercover as a videographer for several animal advocacy organizations. After her last week-long trip undercover visiting stockyards in Texas to film farmed animal abuse, she decided to give up her TV career and dedicate her life helping farmed animals and raising awareness of their plight. She moved to Watkins Glen, NY, to live and work at Farm Sanctuary and learn all she could about shelter operations and animal care. It was that essential experience that gave the couple the confidence to open up a sanctuary of their own.
Jenny, her husband Doug and the work of Woodstock Farm Sanctuary has been featured in The New York Times, Cosmopolitan, Rolling Stone, New York Magazine, HLN’s Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell, NPR’s The Diane Rehm Show and more. Jenny’s critically acclaimed book The Lucky Ones: My Passionate Fight For Farm Animals was released in 2012 and awarded Book of the Year in the 2012 VegNews Awards.
In 2014 Jenny and Doug found a new and much larger property in High Falls, NY, and raised funds to help buy it. The Sanctuary officially relocated in 2015.
