Meg & Missa

Co-Founders

We are Ontario transplants that fell in love with New Brunswick and knew we needed to move here and get a farm! We packed up our four adopted dogs and cat and haven't looked back. We bought a small cottage on lots of land and have been working tirelessly to provide the best home we can for the many animals in need. So that's us! Two humans and 60 animal friends doing our best to be loving and kind to each other!

Isabelle & Cameron

Volunteers

Isabelle and Cameron, both from Ontario, are a military family that returned to the Fredericton area in the summer of 2019 after six years of being posted outside of the province. Isabelle, after going vegan two years ago, was looking for more opportunities to support causes related to animal rights and contribute to reducing the suffering of animals.


After Isabelle and Cameron attended the Wallflower Pumpkin Party in October 2019, they knew this was just the place they were searching for. Since then, they have become Project Volunteers who have consistently and repeatedly answered the call to complete projects around the sanctuary. Over the past 8 months they have become friends with “most” of the animals, although they are still working on Mr. Mu and Eva!!

Erin

Summer Student

Erin joined the team at Wallflower Sanctuary as their first ever summer student through the government of New Brunswick’s SEED Program. Erin is entering her second year of study at UNB’s Faculty of Law and hopes to someday specialize in environmental law and policy. Erin holds a BAA from UNB and a MA in Fashion Theory from Ryerson University.


Erin is a lifelong animal lover with a passion for sustainability. She works mostly behind-the-scenes at Wallflower and her role includes research, strategy, design, and providing administrative support. When at the sanctuary, Erin’s favorite thing to do is to snuggle with the potbellies! She lives in Fredericton with her fiance and their two cats, Georgia and Theo.

Jennifer

Wallflower Sanctuary BoD., Fundraising Team Member, Construction Superstar

Jennifer is a native of Michigan, also having lived in Southern California and Toronto. She moved to New Brunswick in 2010, which she now calls home. She is the Operations Manager at the McAdam Railway Station. Her first experience volunteering with animals was at a sanctuary in the San Gabriel mountains in California where she was a caretaker for over 30 chimpanzees. She was very excited to find the Wallflower Sanctuary where she has been volunteering with her husband since 2019, and she was very happy to be asked to join the Board of Directors in 2020. She has two rescue cats, Ginger and Maryanne.

Corena

Wallflower Sanctuary BoD, Fundraising Committee

Corena has lived in New Brunswick her whole life; she moved from Moncton in 2003 and now considers Fredericton her home. An Operations Manager at Skillsoft by day, she spends her leisure time with her rescue dog (MJ) and cats (Baby Kitty and Kittykins), along with her husband at their home in Marysville.

Corena attended an open farm day in 2018 at the sanctuary with her dad, and immediately fell in love with all of the animals. She started volunteering shortly thereafter, and joined the Board of Directors in 2020. While at the sanctuary, Corena is partial to spending time snuggling with her favourite turkey Levi, and is willing to do whatever it takes to spread awareness about the sanctuary to ensure these creatures

have a happy and healthy quality of life, no matter what circumstances brought them to the sanctuary.
