Nurture your mind, body and spirit while helping Sensibilities Day Spa support Appalachian Wild’s efforts to rescue, rehab and release injured and orphaned wildlife in WNC on Tuesday, June 14  
Sensibilities will donate 20% of its sales to Appalachian Wild as part of Sensibilities Cares —  a quarterly fundraising program dedicated to giving back to the community   
 
April 30, 2016 — Asheville, NC  Sensibilities Day Spa today announced Appalachian Wild as the non-profit of choice to receive 20% of its sales as part of Sensibilities Cares, a program dedicated to giving back to the community. On Tuesday, June 14, Sensibilities will donate 20% of its sales to Appalachian Wild, a 5013c nonprofit that coordinates the needs of wildlife rehabilitation in Western North Carolina providing care for injured and orphaned wildlife, support for the wildlife rehabilitation network and conservation education to the community.  
 
“We often donate gift certificates, funds, products and time to local non-profits, but to commemorate our 15-year-anniversary in 2014, I asked Sensibilities staff members to collaborate on the development of a charitable-giving program and as a result, the Sensibilities Cares program came to be,” says Jen Charlton Locke, founder and owner of Sensibilities Day Spa, with locations in downtown Asheville and Biltmore Park.  
 
On June 14, “Appalachian Wild, will be the eighth cause to benefit from Sensibilities Cares, says Charlton Locke. “This recently launched, much-needed non-profit was formed in response to the increasing numbers of wildlife in need of assistance and the lack of trained people and resources to help them in this part of the state."   
 
Local veterinarian facilities and other organizations that are not set up for wildlife rehabilitation are overwhelmed. Appalachian Wild co-founder and wildlife rehabilitator Savannah Trantham shared, 
“These places do not have staff, space or funding to care for injured and orphaned wildlife for any length of time. Appalachian Wild is stepping up to fulfill this vital role in our community.” With rising numbers each year, almost 1,500 injured and orphaned animals reported last year, a facility dedicated to wildlife care is needed immediately. “The community has shown overwhelming support to get a facility open, we now need to find the right space,” says Kimberly Brewster, co-founder and President of the Appalachian Wild board. The group is seeking a space that will allow them to set up an office to coordinate rescue efforts and a triage room for emergency care.
