Full Moon Farm, Inc.

Full Moon Farm is an organization dedicated to the well being of the wolfdog (wolf hybrid). Situated on 17 beautiful mountain acres in Black Mountain, NC, we operate as a federally recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization for abused and refused wolfdogs who find themselves in need of love, shelter, and care through no fault of their own. Full Moon Farm provides a safe haven for animals that cannot be placed into homes for the rest of their lives. Our rescued wolfdogs come from animal control agencies, closed breeding situations and occasionally, an owner in crisis. We evaluate each animal upon intake and work with them at their level of comfort. Some animals are "hands off&q...

Spring Has Sprung

Cyrus and Ursa
Cyrus and Ursa's new home

Hello to All!

The warmer weather has brought the "Great Shed" around here.  If it isn't covered in fur, it isn't ours.  :-)

Spring has brought price increases to our kibble.  We have had to modify what we feed the animals, as one of our preferred brands reduced the bag size by 5 pounds, with no reduction in price.  This resulted in a loss of more than $150.00 per month.  The second preferred brand raised prices by $1.70 per bag, resulting in a $68.00 per month increase.  Our third preferred brand has increased by $1.00 per bag, a $20.00 per month increase.

Also, we welcomed a few new animals into our pack!  Meet Cyrus and Ursa, both are 13 years old.  Their owner took a fall and was unable to care for them.  They have adjusted well and have made friends with Dave, Jay and Emjay, three of our volunteers.  They are seniors and require supplements and the highest quality kibble we feed.

Honey, came to us from the upper midwest.  She is a mid content animal who has had an abusive past.  Riddled with parasites and malnutrition, she is coming around nicely.  We hope to pair her with a super friendly, very trusting enclosure mate, to help bring her around, once she is spayed.  (She was not fit enough for surgery!)

We are grateful to you all for your continued support in keeping the food pantry stocked.  We hope that you will continue your support, and share our message with your friends and family, to help us meet the increase in costs.

Sending joyous howls from the mountain!

The Winter is Almost Over!

Happy Spring!

The residents of Full Moon Farm want to thank you all for getting us through a particularly long and nasty winter.  We have not started to shed, so we don't think it is over yet!  (Woofer coats are true weather predictors!)

March was met with a price increase from the manufacturers of one of our kibble brands.  They have changed the formula, and reduced the bag size by 5 pounds each, which results in a net loss of more than 150 pounds per month, or $160.00 per month.  We are electing to drop that kibble, and stay with the two other brands we have been feeding for years.

Full Moon Farm is an all volunteer organization, that is 12 years old.  We have cared for hundreds of animals, and operate as a rescue and sanctuary, rather than an adoption and shelter.  We are privately funded by generous folks like yourselves.  Since 'wolfdogs' are myth-understood and mis-catagorized, we fall between the cracks in many foundation funding programs.  You see, dog people think wolfdogs ware 'wolves' or exotic animals, and wolf people think they are 'dogs' or pets, we do not fit the conventional mold for sanctuaries or shelters.  We do not facilitate adoptions, and find ourselves locked out of most pet funding opportunities.

Your generous donations keep the more than 50, full time residents fed, healthy and happy!  We are grateful TO you and FOR you, as your donations keep our doors open.

Joyous Howlz from all of us here at Full Moon Farm!

Howling for a Happy New Year!

June 2013 Howl In Fellowship
June 2013 Howl In Fellowship

Just checking in to send a big Group Howl to all our supporters for the best year ever!  The more than 50 residents of Full Moon Farm Wolfdog Sanctuary will sing in the New Year in honor of you all.  Arrrroooooo!

The 2012 Winter Challenge allowed us to build new enclosures and rebuild old ones.  Our 2013/2014 project will assure that the residents will be supplied with the proper nutrition for the remainer of their lives.

Your kindness and generosity will allow us to continue our mission taking care of the abused and refused wolfdogs of North America. 

We would like to take this opportunity to Thank You all, and share our 2014 Howl In Dates with you.  If you are able, please accept our invitation to join us for an educational tour about wolfdogs, fun and fellowship.

All events start at 3:00, ET, with tours to commence about 3:15 to 3:30.  If you wish to stay for fellowship, please bring a pot luck side dish, and well will supply hamburgers, hotdogs and soft drinks for a suggested $5.00 donation to offset our expenses. 

Our 2014 schedule, Rain or Shine!
