The Latest News from the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary
If there is one certainty in life, it's change. Waves are never idle. The moon phases nightly. Leaves color and fall. Children grow. New life sprouts. And it is within this constant flux that we learn to navigate the ebb and flow. What keeps us steady through the currents? The knowing that we are building a place of light and love just as our daughter would have wanted. I wrote more about this in my latest blog, "Seasons Change".

We have so much exciting news to share as we continue to restore the natural splendor of the Sanctuary property and invite the community for free workshops and gatherings. We've been fortunate to connect with so many kind hearted souls from across the world and we thank you all for taking this journey with us.

November 27th - Settle in the sanctuary

You're invited to help us button up the sanctuary for winter. Whether building bunny bungalows for our New England cotton tails, creating and hanging biodegradable feeders or scattering hay bales to help provide warmth for wildlife, participants will learn ways to support native wildlife in their own backyards.

"I was once a little red-haired girl who loved animals. I'm not so little or red-haired anymore, but I still love animals. The CVH Animal Sanctuary captured my heart from the beginning; I've had a few moments of vivid insight and clarity in my life, and backing the Sanctuary was one of those moments. I knew I had to support its mission and goals, spreading kindness and making a difference in the lives of animals. It has been a delight to be a part of this beautiful dream developing into a beautiful reality!"
