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...

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!

Sharing Heart Felt Thoughts

Big Boy

Dear Friends and Donors,

 With all of the uncertainty in our world these days, we want you to know that Full Moon Farm remains dedicated to its mission of helping wolfdogs find a peaceful place to call home, with plenty of good food, medical attention, lots to do, and favorite spots to hang out while napping in the sun.

 Over the past few months, we have assisted with rescues for animals in peril, including 2 hoarding situations in TN, incapacitation of an owner in SC, owner in crisis in NJ, misidentification in IN and running at large in VA. Each time, Full Moon Farm answered the call, sending help for those in need.

 Our all-volunteer staff and board of directors give their time generously and work tirelessly in support of our sanctuary animals. We pay no salaries, but meeting our monthly bills for dog food, medical care, utilities, vehicles and repairs remains a challenge. At this time, fly traps, fly repellant, ointments and tarps increase our expenses. We are also trying to purchase a tractor for our road maintenance!  Our sanctuary vehicles need tires to provide reliable transportation for supplies and animals. We have been looking for a way to build a work/storage/cooler building that meets USDA standards to process food for the animals. This will enable us to take in donations of raw/frozen meat, prepare it, and store it. It is healthier for the wolfdogs and would help reduce thecost of feeding kibble. Also, as our animals age, our veterinary costs increase.

 Most nonprofit organizations have dedicated fundraising staff and budgets, but we do not currently have those. At this time, our small number of personnel and limited time are devoted almost exclusively to rescue efforts and sanctuary operations. Because of this, we are asking you, our friends and supporters, to assist us in helping those who cannot help themselves. Full Moon Farm is very often the last resort for wolfdogs in need. Please help us make that last resort a safe, comfortable and happy one.

 To help, volunteer, or serve on a committee, please contact us:

Post Office Box 1374, Black Mountain, North Carolina 28711 - 828-664-9818  -  info@fullmoonfarm.org

The staff, volunteers and animals are grateful for any and all assistance.  Arrrooooo!

Yay! We made it through the Winter!

River sniffing for his supper!
River sniffing for his supper!

Wow, we are glad that February is over, as we got our whole winter in one month.  Below zero temperatures.  Snow.  Ice storms.  High winds.  We had it all.  It became apparent that we really need a tractor to maintain the driveway, so that will be our next project!

The animals are well prepared for the cold temperatures and all snuggled in their straw lined shelters.  They love to play in the snow.  After the melt came the mud, but they seem to not mind as much as the two footers do.

We have changed foods around a little and added more animals to Taste of The Wild Premium dog food.  As our animals age, their nutritional requirements change, and we must adapt accordingly.  Also, prices have increased greatly with Diamond Naturals now $28.00 per bag, Chicken Soup changed to a 30 pound bag, leaving us with a loss of 5 pounds per bag.  When we are able, we supply marrow bones for vitamins and enrichment, and your donations make that possible.

More than half of our residents are over the age of 10, with several turning 14 or 15 this year.  We are thankful to YOU, our supporters for this monumental feat.  It is through your support, we can provide nutritious food and supplements to our animals, which is the reason behind their longevity.  

Thank you all for your continued support, and we are sending Joyous Howls to you and yours!

Arrrrooooooooo!
