Connecting the Vulnerable & The Voiceless

Beautiful Together Animal Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2014. 
We rescue animals who have been abused, neglected or abandoned, giving them comprehensive care as we work to find them loving homes. With a focus on empathy-building and pet therapy, we connect animals in need of refuge with children living in foster care, at-risk situations or underserved environments.

Our goal is simple: To connect the vulnerable and the voiceless in purposeful ways that benefit us all.

You Have Up To Six months to complete!

Join over 8,500 fellow challengers and experience North Carolina on an epic city-by-city expedition. We've have had thousands of runners and cyclists make their way from Asheville to Wrightsville Beach.  Now we inspire you to go WEST!  Wrightsville Beach to Asheville.
