KNOXVILLE -- Appalachian Bear Rescue has a new Defender 130 SUV to aid its efforts thanks to Land Rover and Land Rover Knoxville. Appalachian Bear Rescue rehabilitates black bears across the region that have been orphaned, abandoned or injured.

Land Rover launched the Defender Service Awards in 2021 to celebrate U.S. and Canadian-based nonprofits that make a positive impact in the local community. During the 2022 contest, Appalachian Bear Rescue earned top non-profit status in the animal welfare category from more than 2,150 nominations and submissions across the country.

The organization also received $25,000 from category sponsor KONG, a maker of high-quality and rugged pet toys, to honor ABR’s selection and $5,000 from presenting sponsor Chase Bank.

Land Rover Knoxville, which is part of Furrow Automotive Group, also announced a long-term partnership with Appalachian Bear Rescue (ABR) to sponsor its membership education series, which explains the rescue and rehabilitation process, how bears get injured or abandoned, and how to be bear aware and take steps to avoid or mitigate any human interaction.
