It’s been a fascinating experience to be first hand participants in the making of a documentary TV series. From interviews to broll, learning the lingo to setting up shots, the television project is coming together minute by minute.
Here’s a little teaser from the first episode of Furever Home, the TV series being produced by Judith Keenan and Furever Network for broadcast on The Pet Network, featuring our hard working volunteers and the rescued dogs of Beaver Creek Farm Sanctuary!
This episode is all about puppy mill survivors. The story of rescue, rehab and re-homing our fostered American Bulldog Daisy Mae is the narrative that forms the heart of this episode. Daisy is now leading a wonderful life in her furever home, thanks to her new mom Jennifer!
Judith is working double time to get the entire episode done early this winter, then it’ll be off to The Pet Network for their review, feedback, final edits before scheduling.
But don’t hold your breaths quite yet folks, it can be quite some time from completing Episode One to finishing all SIX episodes, then awaiting the broadcaster’s air date.
In the meantime, we’ll continue to get “sneak peeks” to keep you in the loop!
With special shout outs to Amy, Brent, Megan, Laura, Jennifer Martin and the entire cast of characters who have made an appearance, lent a hand, watched some footage, or posed for a picture – it takes a team to make a show!

The consensus was if Beaver Creek Farm Sanctuary could find a foster home, our rescue group would be able to take Truffles into our rescue program, in spite of false pretenses – we know there is NO such thing as a “micro mini” pig of any breed. But Truffles had indeed been sold to his previous families – two of them – as “a micro mini pig.” Here’s our story of the baby potbellied pig effect, and why Truffles needs a savvy home to truly find furever.
Beaver Creek Farm Sanctuary currently has three Pot-bellied pigs as forever sanctuary residents. We are often called to take in pot-bellied pigs in need; in fact, we received another call just this week. We do our best to provide assistance and direction to sanctuaries that can take on more. I thought I’d take this opportunity to reinforce a very true statement that often gets forgotten in the face of overwhelming little pig cuteness: little pigs don’t stay little. Here’s the scoop …
The last day of 2014 proved to be bittersweet as we sent Muffin to her forever home. All the dogs wiggle their way into my heart, but none more so than the ones that overcome great sadness to find love.
