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...

Achilles' in his Habitat!

A proud woofer!
A proud woofer!

Wow, a work in progress, but Mr. Achilles is safe and secure in his new 1500+ square foot habitat.

THANK YOU ALL!

Supplies were bought with your generous donations, labor provided by varaious groups and volunteers.  A big shout out to Warren Wilson College and AB Tech for their assistance and volunteering.  Our caretaker Nathaniel was instrumental every step of the way, and since Achilles 'loves' him, it was reciprocated, and a true labor of love.

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy, and our May newsletter featured Achilles in in new enclosure.

We have had satellite/internet problems at the farm, and our rain amounts are 23 inches above normal. so we are a bit behind in posting pictures.  Hopefully, the satellite technician that was out on Monday fixed everything, and all the pictures and updates will come through.

Achilles says Arrroooo and Tank Woo to all the supporters who made this happen.

Ground Thawed - Posts are In!

Isabelle
Isabelle's Habitat is shaping up!

I started this report in March, and it has languished because of poor internet service. :-(


We here at Full Moon Farm are thankful to all of our supporters for the opportunity to care for these 'myth-understood canines'.  Your donations have been used to purchase posts, cattle panel fencing, rolled fencing, timbers, buckets, hooks,  tie wires and tools, hog rings and tools, levels, concrete, and miscellaneous lumber.

I tried to upload pictures of the posts in the ground, so some of these may be duplicates, but I was just informed that this report never uploaded correctly. :-(

Achilles, Isabelle, River, Coal and Indy are grateful to you all, as their habitats are upgraded or built, and we here at Full Moon Farm, the staff, volunteers, board of directors and myself, appreciate your generosity each day that we look into the eyes of these precious animals, and accept them for the magnificent canines they are.  

In gratitude, all of us at Full Moon Farm. 

It will be such a nice size!

Achilles' Habitat Happiness!

Under construction!
Under construction!

Land cleared, posts in and a big shout out to Warren Wilson College and their Service Learning Department!  We had many senior students complete their service learning requirement at Full Moon Farm throughout the spring, and made some great friends too.

Building safe and secure enclosures are difficult in the mountains, so extra precautions are always necessary, such as posts closer together, overlapping fencing, double layers of fencing, extra staples and extra hog ring fasteners.  For an animal such as Achilles, lean ins are necessary, as is a double gated entry, allowing for feeding and watering to be completed without entering the enclosure.

Achilles' new habitat is a work in progress, and when completed, it will be safe, secure and enriching!  At over 1500 square feet, and set on a slight hill, he will be set off the main tour area, and not have close neighbors.  His shelter will be experimental, but it will allow him to get up on it, and survey his kingdom!

Here are some pictures of the 'work in progress', and we hope that you enjoy them.
