Every June, the sanctuary honors Catherine’s birthday and her love of animals with Catherine’s Butterfly Party. This year’s event will celebrate 7 years of finding fur-ever homes for animals in need through community spirit, compassion and love. We hope you’ll join us!

The CVH Animal Sanctuary is committed to helping animals in need find the loving homes they deserve. Thanks to our sponsors, Catherine’s Butterfly Party always remains FREE to participating rescues AND the public. This allows hard working animal welfare groups to focus on their animals while we take care of everything else.

Rescue Agencies

Every year, Catherine asked for a birthday party that would bring all her favorite animals together. Catherine’s Butterfly Party is that wish fulfilled, bringing hundreds of adoptable animals to potential adopters at NO COST to the rescues. We are honored to welcome these special organizations on the front lines of animal welfare, making a difference and saving lives every day. Remember…adopt don’t shop!
