Join the EQUUS Foundation for Catherine's Butterfly Party on June 8th in Newtown

The EQUUS Foundation welcomes all animal lovers to attend Catherine's Butterfly Party, a FREE family festival and pet adoption event in Newtown, Connecticut on Saturday, June 8 from 12-4pm at the Fairfield Hills Campus on 3 Primrose Street.

The 5th annual community event, hosted by the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary, celebrates the life of sweet Catherine Hubbard, who lost her life during the Sandy Hook Tragedy and will benefit the Foundation’s development of the new animal sanctuary in Newtown. This year, the event celebrates its 5-year milestone and also falls on an extra special day - June 8 - which would have been Catherine's 13th birthday.

Every year, Catherine asked for a birthday party that would bring all of her favorite animals together - Catherine’s Butterfly Party is that wish fulfilled.

EQUUS Foundation Last year, over 6,000 attended the event, and over 70 homeless animals found fur-ever homes. This year's event is planning to be the biggest one yet! The Butterfly Party will feature 28+ animals rescue organizations, over 100 adoptable pets, live wildlife demonstrations, pet-related vendors, local artisans, food trucks, live music, entertainment and endless activities for kids!

Nestled in the very heart of Newtown and spread over 34 acres of pristine farmland, breathtaking woodlands, and rolling meadows, the home of the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary is coming to life. Upon completion, the sanctuary will be home to a state-of-the-art veterinary intake facility, a companion and farm animal refuge, wildlife rescue and rehabilitation center, and education center offering animal and nature programming for the public.

**NYC Visitors: Due to I-95 construction on June 8th, NYC guests are encouraged to take I-684 to I-84 East when traveling to CT or take the Metro North Harlem Line to Brewster, NY station.
