No matter what is going on in the world, the unconditional bond shared with pets is a constant source of joy for many. That’s why the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary is inviting people to celebrate their favorite animals one high five at a time through the #HighFiveForPaws challenge.
Simply post on social media a photo or video of you sharing a precious moment with your furry or not so furry friends, tag #HighFiveForPaws and nominate five friends to do the same.
The CVH Animal Sanctuary honors the memory of 6-year-old Catherine Hubbard, a kind and compassionate animal lover who lost her life at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012. To continue her crusade of compassion, the sanctuary is being created in Newtown, Connecticut – a place where all creatures will know they are safe and people are kind.
The #HighFiveForPaws challenge celebrates the unconditional human-animal bond like the one between Catherine and her dog, Sammy.
Jenny Hubbard, sanctuary Executive Director and Catherine’s mother, remembers their bond well.
“My daughter graced this earth for only six short years, but in that time, she was committed to showing animals profound kindness. She loved nothing more than sharing a squeeze or a loving word with her beloved furry friends.”
The mission of the sanctuary is to enrich the lives of all beings by promoting compassion and acceptance.
“By honoring the bond between humans, animals and the environment, we’re creating a kinder and gentler world for all, just as she would have wanted,” Jenny stated.
