Pawthereum has been busy making friends with animal welfare organizations around the world, donating more than $300,000 since the project launched in October 2021.

Newtown, Connecticut, US, December 13, 2021 / – Pawtherium kicked off its “12 Days of Crypto Giving” campaign in December with a donation arriving close to home. The Animal-Focused Crypto Project has made a $50,000 donation to the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary in Newtown, Connecticut. The Animal Sanctuary Project was created in honor of Kathryn Hubbard, a 6-year-old animal lover who went missing in the tragic shooting of Sandy Hook, whose obituary nine years ago inspired thousands of people to make donations to local shelters.

Pawthereum is joined by an additional donation of $25,000 from Pawthereum team member Matthew Corchin Roy and his family, who have roots in Newton. The family will visit the CVHAS team in Newtown on the 14th to tour the sanctuary site and honor and celebrate the work being done in memory of Catherine.

“Pawthereum was born out of the idea that cryptocurrencies can be a formidable force for good in the world,” said Nawzad Amiri, Pawthereum Project Leader. “When crypto communities come together, anything is possible. We are proud to start December 12 Days of Crypto Giving with Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary and help advance the incredible work they are doing in their community.”

The Pawthereum donation will directly support CVHAS’s Senior Paw Project, an outreach program for seniors in Connecticut who sometimes have difficulty caring for their pets for various reasons. The program currently operates in more than 12 cities and has helped provide more than 250,000 meals to pets in need while helping more than hundreds of pets in need receive nutritional and medical care. The Pawthereum donation will help Senior Paw expand to up to 10 additional cities in 2023.

“We are humbled that our work to make a world more kind and compassionate towards animals has been recognized by Pawthereum,” said Jennifer Hubbard, executive director of the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary. Memory and her love for all creatures, big and small. To receive such a generous donation from Pawthereum affords us the opportunity to honor Catherine’s mission and help so many animals in need, and for that, I am truly grateful.”

The animal sanctuary is currently under construction on 34 acres of land. It will reflect Catherine’s compassion for all creatures by providing medical care and a home for the animal population as well as hands-on educational programs for the community. Pawthereum encourages all animal friends to consider supporting CVHAS’ work this holiday season so they can realize their vision of a world-class animal sanctuary.
