Two rescued pigs were welcomed into Jon Stewart's family last year, and now the farm animal sanctuary in New Jersey can't stop growing.

Home on the range for Jon and Tracey Stewart is full of rescued farm animals, including two lovable pigs that run a Twitter account called "The Daily Squeal."

Anna and Maybelle were rescued on July 6, 2015 from a swine factory truck when the two fell off cargo load during transfer. Farm Sanctuary, the leading farm animal rescue organization, immediately took in the pigs. Now, the porcine pair have found a forever home with the Stewart duo.

In May, the Stewarts adopted a horse that was brutally pelleted with paintballs. Sadly, the horse died at the end of June.

The Stewart's farmland in New Jersey is the fourth heartland rescue to team up with Farm Sanctuary. Anna and Maybelle, then piglets, were the first animals the Stewarts took in. After that, the New Jersey home quickly grew into the farm sanctuary it is today. And it's only continuing to grow!

The sanctuary's grand opening is set to debut in 2017.
