From Full Moon Farm:
Full Moon Farm is an organization dedicated to the well-being of the wolfdog (wolf hybrid). 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 residents, allowing them to reach their highest potential.
On the Saturday closest to the full moon each month (April – October) Full Moon Farm hosts an open house called a “Howl In” where the public is invited to tour part of the facility, learn about the breed and hear each wolfdog’s individual story. Guests are introduced to our resident wolfdogs and learn their individual stories. There is an optional pot luck dinner provided for $5 a plate (we provide meat and drinks). Our “gift den” features local handcrafted jewelry, artwork and many other unique items for the wolf lover in your family.
The first Howl In of 2014 is Saturday, April 12th from 3pm to 6pm. The first tour begins at 3:15pm. For directions please call 828-669-9818. For more information about Full Moon Farm visit our website at www.fullmoonfarm.org.
