On April 23, Lifetime Television chose Animal Acres founder Lorri Houston as the next Remarkable Woman featured in its Lifetime Celebrates Remarkable Women series. Every month, the network selects several influential and inspiring women to profile, and chose Houston based on her lifelong commitment to helping save and care for animals. In 1986, Houston co-founded Farm Sanctuary, the first farm animal shelter in the US, and in 2005 she founded farm animal sanctuary Animal Acres, where she continues caring for rescued farm animals. On June 12, Animal Acres celebrates its annual Country Hoe Down, inviting guests to tour the sanctuary and befriend the animals.
