I read the Mountain Xpress every week. I read the Best Local Do-Gooder list in your Round Two Oct. 20 issue. There may have been a Do-Gooder organization left off that list.
Full Moon Farm in Black Mountain houses and takes care of wolf dogs in the area. Even though they are not open to the public unless notified ahead of time, it is a great animal humanitarian organization. They also care about animals and don't get enough support. It seems as though the “Best of” lists mostly places located in Asheville, whereas Black Mountain gets left out. With the exception of a few places located in Black Mountain, the area has a lot to offer, including restaurants, entertainment venues, shopping and salons. We are also a part of Buncombe County, although we get lost in the shuffle of Asheville's limelight.
