Catherine Violet Hubbard

Six-year-old Catherine Violet Hubbard was kind. A lover of all animals, she always made a point to show them extraordinary compassion, often whispering, “tell all your friends that I am kind”. Animals were her passion and she promised that when she grew up, she would care and protect them all. Tragically, on December 14th, 2012, Catherine’s life ended at Sandy Hook Elementary School – cutting short a young girl’s dream before it could become a reality. To continue her crusade of compassion, the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary is coming to life in Newtown, CT – a place where all creatures will know they are safe and people are kind, just as Catherine would have wanted.

Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary

The Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary enriches the lives of all beings by promoting compassion and acceptance. By honoring the bond between animals, humans and the environment, we’re creating a kinder and gentler world for all.  To learn more, please visit our website: CVHFoundation.org
