WHAT THEY DO: Rescue. Rehab. Release. Relate. That’s the mission of Appalachian Wild, a nonprofit founded in 2014 to provide care for injured and orphaned native wildlife, support the wildlife rehabilitation network and provide conservation education to the community. Serving nearly 2,000 wild animals in peril each year from counties throughout WNC, Appalachian Wild provides a vital service to the community. If you find orphaned or injured wildlife in need of help, reach out to the Wildlife Emergency Hotline at 828-633-6364 ext. 1 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT THEY DO: We’re all about hope, not heartache. As Buncombe County’s critical safety net since 1984, we are always here to save and protect every animal. We have mastered the art of saving lives within our walls, and now we are going even further, helping our community’s pets and their people thrive together. We are going beyond a no-kill community to ensure that each animal has the quality of life they deserve—a life worth living.
