Meet the Team
Born in Canada, Michelle has always had a passion for animals. From a young age she was drawn to them and them to her. After moving to Australia in 2012, Michelle began to travel and work as a scuba diving instructor but always felt herself being drawn back to animals. She studied vet nursing, and worked in that field for a while but finally found her calling when she and Hugh started rescuing farm animals in 2019. With a passion for welfare, Michelle will stop at nothing to make sure the animals have the best lives possible.
Born and raised in the city of Sydney, Hugh had little experience with farm animals growing up. He was always an animal lover, and when Michelle had the idea to start rescuing farm animals he knew it would be a learning curve. At first nervous around large animals, Hugh has grown into the lifestyle well! He adores the animals and is a natural when it comes to handling them. He is particularly in love with our goats, and they love him!
