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...

Lots of new faces this spring!

Hello Farm Supporters!

As we are heading in to summer, we want to tell you about the busy spring we have had. 

March brought us 5 new residents from Michigan, and 3 from the Sanford/Raeford, North Carolina area.  Wolfster, Freya, Tala, Luna and D'Artangan were seized as wolfdog ownership is illegal in Michigan.  They are super sweet love muffins and hopefully will be able to have families of their own soon.  Hats off to Iosco County Michigan Animal Shelter, as they went above and beyond to save these special furkids.  Adam, Eve and Queenie were seized from a rescue turned hoarder in the eastern part of the state, and placed with us through the ASPCA investigations division.  These three animals are in pretty rough shape, and as Dr. Beverly put it, "They are pitiful".  We are doing what we can to keep them healthy and happy, while allowing them to get comfortable.  Queenie has people skills but appears to be other animal aggressive, while Adam and Eve want nothing to do with humans.  All three have lived for years on concrete and have bad hips and bad backs because of it.

May has brought us Miss Summer, a mid content rescue from a military family in crisis.  She is a sweet girl and we hope she will become an Ambassadog with River!


We said goodbye to senior residents Star, Missy, Tatanka, Sophia and Kaos in the first 5 months of this year, placed Lobo and Pup Pup into lifetime foster care with volunteers, transferred out Snowflake and Big Boy, watched Big Boy, now known as Klondike make his first commercial appearance in the Toyota Rav 4 commercial featuring James Marsden!  While we do not do adoptions for a fee, volunteers are allowed to lifetime foster more social animals, and we do facility to facility transfers between other organizations, such was the case with Big Boy a rescue from VA.

Your support keeps us going and we are thankful. 

We hope you enjoy our stories, pictures and Big Boy's debut!

Joyous Howls from the mountain!

Better Late Than Never!

Our 2016 Howl In Schedule
Our 2016 Howl In Schedule

Dearest Supporters,

Please accept my heartfelt apology for the tardiness of this report.  I am so sorry that I have been unable to keep you updated in a timely fashion.

Two computers decided to crash within a week of each other.  While our computers have been replaced by the generosity of friends and supporters, a lot of information was lost.  We are slowly recreating information from old back ups.

Thank you for your patience.

Now, for the good news!  The storms in October gave way to a mild but cold December and early January, then the snows hit!  18 inches of snow on the ground makes like a little difficult for two leggeds, but the animals enjoyed it tremendously.

Since our last update, we have rescued Kaite, Mickey D., Snowflake, Gabriel, Shultz and are working on The Michigan 5.  Yes, 5 at one time are coming in, as soon as we can finish containment for them.  We have said goodbye to Cyrus, Missy, Navajo and Kaos.  The Circle of Life and Death is ever present in the world of Rescue.

Our residents range from 50 to 60 at any given time.  The average age of our residents is 11, so we have the senior center at this time, with 37 animals over the age of 10.  We feel so Blessed that the wolfdogs in our care are kept healthy and vibrant because of your donations, and they 'Howl for Food' everyday!

Spring is just around the corner and we are gearing up for our Howl In season, starting in April.  If you find yourself in the Black Mountain, NC area, please give us a shout.  We would enjoy meeting you and having you see the wolfdogs that you help support.

With gratitude,

Nancy, Volunteers and Residents of Full Moon Farm Wolfdog Rescue and Sanctuary

It's That Time Of Year!

Our food storage pantry is empty and we are heading into winter!  The reports are saying cold, snowy and long.  Please help us fill the pantry.  Your generosity has kept us going, and we are grateful.

We have some new faces here at Full Moon Farm Wolfdog Rescue. Let us introduce Karma, Kaite, Mickey D. and Lobo!

Karma was rescued from Orange County, California. She was seized by Animal Control after her owners were arrested. At the shelter, research showed a complaint against Karma for allegedly attacking and killing a cat. She was reported by someone as being a wolf, or a wolfdog, and a DNA test showed minute amounts of wolf DNA. After a trial, she was sentenced to be euthanized. A petition was started by animal activists to save her life, with more than 360,000 signers! At the 11th hour, an appeal, a stay was granted and ownership of Karma, the myth-understood husky was transferred to Full Moon Farm. She is a wonderful canine and we are happy she is here.

Kaite and Mickey D. came in from another rescue in AL where they lived their entire lives after the rescuer was diagnosed with cancer and had to undergo surgery and chemotherapy. They are both 12 years old and a welcome part of the 'senior center'. We are happy they are here and seem to be adjusting well. Please keep Debra in your thoughts and prayers.

Lobo was rescued by a dog rescue in VA and sent to Full Moon Farm. He is a great animal who has come a long way in the two months he has been here. Having spent his life on a chain, he enjoys leash walking with his favorite volunteers.

As we head into the winter, we hope that you will continue to support the animals who will HOWL for FOOD at Full Moon Farm, and help us keep the Pantry full!
