About Homer: I am a gentle, shy man with a big heart. I am quicker than you think, happy to jump around on my enrichment pedestals, bouncing up and down from one level to the next. At nights I am tucked cozily into the barn  I share with my BFF, Rocket, to enjoy some snoozing and perhaps a midnight feast of hay until, the sun comes back up again.  


History: Homer came to our attention when he was being given away for free as a meat-animal. Since we had a lonely Rocket already at sanctuary, we worked quickly to rescue Homer, who has thrived at sanctuary life since! 

Favourites: Rocket, parkour, munching on greens!

Homer's mantra: "Theres always time for a snack"

About Homer: A gentle, shy man with a big heart. This fun guy is quicker than you think, happy to jump around on his enrichment pedestals, bouncing up and down from one level to the next. At nights he is tucked cozily into the barn he shares with his BFF, Rocket, to enjoy some snoozing and perhaps a midnight feast of hay until, the sun comes back up again.

Rocket

About Rocket: My name is Rocket man, the guy with the cutest smile and deepest "maaaa". I have the sweetest overbite that shows off my pearly teeth (perhaps as a constant reminder to keep the treats coming). I'm happy to hang out in the communal areas to be around others, a privilege I feel quite entitled to. 

History: Rocket was our very first goat at Wallflower Sanctuary. He was a victim of a hoarding case close to the sanctuary in New Brunswick. The winter was remarkably cold that year, we'd had multiple weeks of -40°C. Rocket was living unfenced in a makeshift home made with tarps and bales of straw. The living conditions were very rough, Rocket resorted to grazing on trees for food. We're not sure exactly how old Rocket is, but he was clearly an older goat even at the time of rescue-- we hate to think he had been enduring these conditions for a while. Rocket was named in honour of our BoD member Danielle's goat Rocky, who had passed away around the time Rocket came to his forever home. 

He yelled a lot when he first arrived, and it became apparent that he may be lonely. We kept an eye out and soon discovered Homer being sold as livestock. We soon brought Homer home to Wallflower too, and the pair have gotten along like long-lost brothers since. 

Favourites: Homer, bananas, celery, carrots, special treatment.

Rocket's Mantra: "Graze where the grass is tall and the friends are plentiful!"

Sheep

About Poppy: My name is Poppy and I'm the self-proclaimed "leader of the pack".  I loves cats, and visits by farm cat Jinx are warmly welcomed by all of the sheep. 
History: Poppy and her two sisters, Perry and Rue, were rescued from a situation of neglect in New Brunswick in the summer of 2019. Concerns were raised by a number of local individuals, who noticed various sheep and goats being tied up to tires in a field, during the heat of the summer, with very limited water and no shelter from the sun. We were first able to negotiate the release of the twin sisters, Poppy and Perry, and were later able to return after Rue's release was negotiated, also. When they arrived at Wallflower we were concerned for their ligaments as they were tethered tightly and tangled, still as young sheep in their developmental stages. Luckily, all three sheep grew up to be healthy girls at Wallflower Sanctuary. 

Favourites: Dogs, her sisters, Homer (the sheep's BFF). 

Poppy's mantra: "Always greet your friends with excitement!"

We see every challenge as an opportunity, and our Economic Development initiative helps The Wallflower Collective ensure that those we serve are better prepared to persevere in the unique situations they find themselves in.
