In Memory of Catherine Hubbard: For The Animals

Catherine Violet Hubbard was only 6 years old, but she has such a love and passion for animals, that she already knew she wanted to run a shelter when she grew up.

Sadly, we’ll never know what a difference Catherine Hubbard would have made for the homeless animals of the world because she died at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT one week ago.

Catherine’s parents, Matthew and Jennifer, have asked that memorial donations be made to the Newtown Animal Center in Catherine’s honor. You may send your donation {which is most likely tax-deductible} to PO Box 475, Newtown, CT 06470.

If you would prefer to donate to your own local animal shelter or rescue, I’m willing to bet Catherine wouldn’t mind. When you make your donation, you will want to specify that you’re making it in her honor.Every donation made on Catherine’s behalf will help shelter animals, and in that way, her legacy will live on.

When I think of the Rainbow Bridge story, I like to imagine that on that fateful day, all those homeless babies playing just this side of the Bridge stopped suddenly and looked into the distance, sensing that something magnificent was about to happen but not sure what it was. And then suddenly, a little red-haired angel appeared, and they ran to her and they greeted her with licks and purrs and kisses and nuzzles, and then Catherine lead them across the Bridge, skipping all the way.
