Posted by GreaterGoodness

Catherine Hubbard was in first grade when she lost her life in the Sandy Hook shooting of 2012. But though her life was cut short, she’s continuing to make the world a better place for animals in need.

Despite her small stature, Catherine managed to dream bigger than many adults. In kindergarten, she made herself business cards for “Catherine’s Animal Shelter,” on which she listed herself as “Care Taker.”

Though she’s no longer here to realize her dream, we can make it come true for her.

The Catherine Violet Hubbard Foundation was created by Catherine’s parents is to protect all animals in need. It’s first initiative, Catherine’s Rescue Barn, is a project Catherine conceptualized herself, aimed at sheltering the hundreds of animals displaced from closing or abandoned farms. Now it has the chance to truly take off, and you can help.
