The Latest News from the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary
As we move beyond the first months of 2017, we feel the tidings of an awakening spring upon the Sanctuary. The ground begins to thaw, the bird songs rise and the fresh shoots of daffodils and crocus tentatively peek from the loam. We see this birth mirrored in the new and expanded programming coming to life each month. We see this spring in the growing network of rescues participating with us and the brightness shining in the eyes of newly adopted animals. And we witness this pure light in the faces and smiles of supporters and volunteers joining our mission of compassion.

This year promises to be ripe with action at the Sanctuary. As the regulatory process for construction begins, we look forward to sharing all the exciting news and updates along the way. Enjoy the budding spring as we embrace peace beneath the sun's rays of new beginnings.

"Thanks to the CVH Animal Sanctuary, I learned about the BeFreegle Foundation which helps former research dogs find a new life. I ended up fostering an amazing beagle named Atom. After I picked him up, our first stop was to the Sanctuary to say "thank you" for making the connection possible. Blessings in advance for this June's Butterfly Party!"
