The Latest News from the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary
Every June, Catherine's birthday wish was to have an "all the animals" party that would bring her favorite creatures together in celebration. Little did we know that her innocent request would lead to the future inspiration and creation of Catherine's Butterfly Party.

This year, over 5,000 people flocked from across the tri-state area to attend our 4th annual Catherine's Butterfly Party. Thanks to the support of so many, we were able to bring all the components of the Sanctuary together in one beautiful afternoon – love of animals, wonder of the outdoors and the thrill of discovery. The smiles, happiness, purrs and tail wags will stay in our hearts forever.

We hope to see you next year!
