Full Moon Farm is an organization dedicated to the well-being of the wolfdog. A wolfdog is a dog that has a pure wolf ancestor within the last 5 generations. Situated on 17 beautiful mountain acres in Black Mountain, NC, Full Moon Farm operates 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” and we respect their choice, as well as that of the animals that crave human interaction. Our goal is to enrich the lives of the resident animals, allowing them to reach their highest potential.
Each month on the Saturday closest to the full moon (April – October) Full Moon Farm hosts an open house called a “Howl In” where they invite the public to the sanctuary. Guests are given a tour of part of the facility and introduced to the resident wolfdogs. There is an optional pot luck dinner provided for $5 a plate (we provide meat and drinks). Guenny’s Gift Den features local handcrafted jewelry, artwork and many other unique items.
The next Howl In is Saturday, Sept. 21 and this month they are featuring Native Story Telling, along with a special ceremony to honor the wolfdogs, the wild wolves, the bison, the wild horses, and all of Creation. The event starts at 3pm and ends at 6pm and is open to the public. For directions please call 828-664-9818. For more information about Full Moon Farm visit their website at www.fullmoonfarm.org.
