In September of 2014, the state of CT conveyed this spot of pristine state farmland, with breathtaking woodlands and rolling meadows, to the CVH Foundation. Located only minutes from the highway, the sanctuary is easily accessible from Boston and New York City, making it an ideal destination that hundreds of thousands can enjoy over time.
The future sanctuary facility will reflect Catherine’s empathy for all creatures by providing unsurpassed care for its animal residents and hands-on educational programs for the community.

The pavilion entrance point, the heart and soul of the building, was thoughtfully designed to represent Catherine, its red terracotta tiled roof symbolizing her radiant hair and spirit. The colonades on either side represent her outreaching arms, ready to embrace every animal and person who enters. Now, you can become a permanent part of the sanctuary.
Purchase an inscribed granite paver for the sanctuary…the stepping stones to peace and healing.
