The Blue Ridge Mountains are a beautiful and vast area to travel through on vacation. Many of our visitors explore our region on the backroads and trails of the area by car and with their families and pets. Our region is full of quaint small towns, many of which become very low key and quiet when the sun sets. And sometimes, THAT is when a plethora of emergencies can arise. Trail injuries, illnesses, dental or vehicle emergencies are rarely “planned” for, and even our pets can be in need of emergency assistance. We would like to thank our partners, for sponsoring our Urgent Need Resources category. But mostly, we thank them for provide quality healthcare and emergency services throughout our entire WNC/Blue Ridge Mountain region. They are ready round the clock for any emergency a visitor might experience. We’d also like to thank REACH Animal Hospital for being there 24/7 for our “fur” families. Because you never know, or want to plan for an emergency…it’s good to know the listings below are filled with caring folks and available around the clock, should an urgent need arise!
