Remembering Catherine

Today is Catherine Hubbard's 6th birthday... one that she will be celebrating in heaven. I have really enjoyed learning about this fiery little red head who loved animals with a passion. She  would spend her days taking care of her yellow lab, Samantha, and making sure that all of the other creatures she met were loved and cared for and knew they were safe.

Her parents, Matt and Jen, and her brother Freddie knew that Catherine was serious about her passion when she made up business cards and handed them out to classmates and teachers advertising "Catherine's Animal Shelter". And so, after she died in December at Sandy Hook Elementary School, they set out to make sure her dream came true. The Animal Center in Newtown wanted to help and so, The Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary is in the works. If you would like to donate to this amazing cause and help Catherine's dream come true, there is a link to do so on the page above. They also have an auction going on right now on their Facebook page for some great books that will benefit her Sanctuary. Please go check it out and help Catherine's dream become a reality.

Happy Birthday, Catherine! We will never forget...
