Upcoming Build: CVH Animal Sanctuary – May,2017

In 2012, life changed drastically for the Hubbard family when their precious daughter Catherine was tragically taken from them when a shooter entered Sandy Hook Elementary.  Faced with a crippling loss, the Hubbards chose to take a terrible situation and turn it into something positive that honored the legacy of Catherine.  Catherine was an animal lover at heart, and she always dreamed of starting an animal sanctuary where neglected animals could have a place to be loved as they deserved.


Fast forward a few years, and the Catherine Violet Hubbard Foundation is well on its way toward making that dream a reality.  Thanks to a donation from the state of Connecticut, the Hubbards have started work on a beautiful property that will eventually house an education center, a clinic, a dog & cat rescue, a place for farm animals to thrive, and much more!  Last May, Rescue Rebuild had the privilege to help with this project by restoring a barn that already resided on the property, but had been neglected for decades.  We shored up the building by repairing rot-damaged sections of the structure & roof and we topped it off with a fresh coat of paint and a new roof that will preserve it for years to come!  It will soon be the home for rescued farm animals that are in need of a loving home!

Before & After

This year, we’re headed back to install pasture fencing, put a few finishing touches on the barn, and help to remove some of the invasive plant species that have taken root on the property.  We need YOUR help! Come join us at CVH in Newtown, CT from May 10-18th so we can get this project one step closer to fulfilling Catherine’s dream!
