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...

Sharing Heart Felt Thoughts

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!

Happy Howlidays!

Niki

Arrrroooooo!  Greetings in the song of our people!  Arrrroooooooo!  We Howled for Food, and you have answered!

It is the Howliday Season here at Full Moon Farm Wolfdog Rescue and Sanctuary, and we want to share with you some highlights of 2014.

We said hello and goodbye to quite a few seniors this year.  Since our start in 2002, the cycle of life and death plays out.  We rejoice in all of life and our memories give us strength to continue our mission of saving and sheltering 'abused and refused' wolfdogs. 

Recap:

Three puppies were rescued from a hoarding situation in TN.  Uno, Dos and Tres were given love, good food and restored to health, socialized by volunteers and placed into other facilities to be ambassadors for their breed. 

Two seniors, Cyrus and Ursa are thriving after their rescue when their owner became ill.  Cyrus likes to sing, and starts a good deal of the community howls here.  He is a resource guarder, so we have to be diligent with Ursa, food and water buckets.

Bob, a husky mutt from a hoarding situation in KY has filled out, but is still socially awkward with people and is a work in progress.  A striking boy with one blue eye and one green eye, he gives mixed signals in his interactions.  

Mika, a 6 month old pup found her forever home at Full Moon Farm in October, after being shuffled around four times in her short life.  She has been paired with River The Ambassadog to learn trust and human interactions.

Niki, Joe and Tiny came in from a facility in IL where the owner passed away.  Niki and Joe are loving and social. Although never trained to leash or given manners, they are responsive to all the volunteers and eager to give kisses!  Tiny, well, as we say around here, 'Bless Her Heart'.  She is small and from what I was told, she didn't look wolfy, so she was kept alone and not given much interaction with humans.  She is unsocial and desires no people contact.  Once she is spayed, she will be paired up with a ‘hands off’ male and allowed to be what she is in a large enclosure in the woods.  

Our Season Greetings to all of you, our supporters for allowing us to do our work for them.  May 2015 bring Joy to all of us and all of you.  Arrrooooooo!
