ABR's Capital Cub Nursery Campaign
Please consider being a part of our ABR Facilities effort to complete a proper Cub Nursery for the cubs of 2012 and years to come! We are also working to complete other very important projects for the ABR cubs.
This capital campaign raises funds for three important projects:
(a) We will turn an empty shed into a nursery for orphaned cubs too young for enclosures;
(b) We will build a refrigerated storage unit, letting us buy nutritious cub food in bulk; and
(c) We will create a second wild enclosure to allow regeneration of the forest growth.
We do our work for the black bear cubs with the help of generous and caring individuals like YOU. Together, we can return more cubs to the wild. Together, we can make a significant difference for the black bears in Townsend and beyond. Together, we can be part of an enormous success.
To do these things, and to care for cubs, we need your help. Your continued support is essential to our success. Together, we can save more black bear cubs.
Please use the PayPal donate button below to send us your cub nursery contribution.
NOTE: This is the empty building that we are turning into a much-needed CUBBY NURSERY. It will eventually be completely insulated and outfitted with shelving, workspce, supplies, electricity -- in short, everything that is needed to make the tiniest cubs warm, safe and comfortable until they are large enough to 'graduate' to an outdoor pen. The curator will be able to care for these wee ones that need round-the-clock feedings in an approrpriate environment.
ABR's "Help Make this Cubby Chubby" Campaign
You can help our many hungry cubs by donating on-line to our “Chubby Cubby” Campaign. Every dollar donated via the Townsend IGA (Village Market) goes to Appalachian Bear Rescue in the form of GIFT CARDS that we then use to purchase fresh food for orphaned cubs and bears.
Follow THIS LINK to the Townsend IGA's Appalachian Bear Rescue notice that includes a PayPal Donate button. It looks like this:

Gift Cards for Food and Supplies
Gift cards are helpful and excellent donations to ABR because perishable food does not have to be purchased until it is needed. This eliminates the requirement for storage.
Gift cards can also be used to purchase medical supplies in addition to food.
We are already tax-exempt at the following local stores that offer gift cards:
Village Market (Townsend IGA)
Blount County Co-Op
