2017 EPC Nominee: Brenda Bronfman

Brenda Bronfman EPC updates


Brenda Bronfman of Bradford, ON, was nominated by Jenn Phillips

I don’t know Brenda, but I know she’s a true inspiration to me and many would-be animal activists. My family recently had the pleasure of visiting Wishing Well Sanctuary and it was an incredible experience. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen activism delivered with such love, caring and peace as it was by Brenda. It was apparent that this is an endeavour of true passion for her!

Recognizing widespread cruelty to animals and wanting to do something more, Brenda founded Wishing Well Sanctuary, a farmed animal sanctuary where abused animals, those typically raised for food, can live out their lives in peace, surrounded by love and appreciation of each individual's unique personality and needs. Wishing Well Sanctuary is a centre for humane education, rescued farmed animals, healing and personal growth. Animal activism is often about so many things--environmentalism, as 'farming animals' has incredibly dire consequences for the environment, health education and awareness, animal rights, preventing cruelty to animals by supporting and encouraging people to live in alignment with the deep values of empathy and compassion thereby nurturing the understanding of the interconnectedness of all life.

Of equal importance is Brenda's wish to promote emotional well-being for us all. The more connected we feel within, with others, with animals and with our magnificent yet fragile Earth, the better the choices we'll make.

Animals don’t have the voices we have to stand up for their rights and life. Thankfully, there are people like Brenda who can step in and be that voice; for the sake of the animals, the planet and for us all!
