Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: The mission of Full Moon Farm is to provide assistance, and/or a safe haven, to wolfdogs in need of rescue from abusive situations, owner surrenders and animal control agencies, and to educate the public about these "special needs" animals.

Results: We currently house over 60 wolfdogs that have been rescued. We provide their daily needs and care as needed to give them a happy life for these animals. We have spent a great deal of time so far this year fundraising for new housing enclosures and repairs as well as backup power sources for use during storm outages at the sanctuary.

Target demographics: Animals, primarily wolfdogs, wolf hybrids and wolf dogs.

Direct beneficiaries per year: wolfdogs by bringing 35 into our facility, assisting owners in crisis, and educating hundreds of people about the "myth" understood wolfdog.

Geographic areas served: Continental United States

Programs: Full Moon Farm is an organization dedicated to the well being of the wolfdog (wolf hybrid) and as an educational center for the public. We operate as a sanctuary for abused and refused wolfdogs who find themselves in need of love, shelter, and care.

I have followed Nancy and Full Moon Farm for a number of years online. I am completely in awe of Nancy's strength of character in what she does for these animals and the adversities she has to overcome to do what she does. She and the volunteers do a wonderful job educating about and taking in and providing love and care for unwanted/in danger wolfdogs.

Until about 5 years ago I never knew about this place but once I do I have fallen in love with not only the animamls but the people as well, this is more than just a non-profit rescue this is a FAMILY. This is what is should be all about, saving lives all while helping to educate the people who dont know as well as some who do. The younger generations like myself can learn ALOT from these peopl who put their heart,soul,sweat and blood into trying to save these special animals. There is just not enough good I could say about this place and the people connected to it you just have to experience it for yourself and once you do you will want to continue to do so.

I was fortunate enough to meet Nancy in an online forum and she helped me better understand my wolfdog's behavior and how to tell a wolfy looking dog apart from an actual wolfdog. Visiting the farm and learning about the various inhabitants gave me a depth of understanding that resonates with me to this day.

I appreciate her unwavering devotion to their well-being, but also her understanding of when it becomes more merciful to bring peace to a life that was tortured beyond the animal's ability to heal.

She loves, believes, and gives every ounce of effort to this sanctuary, and when a resident crosses the bridge she grieves for them because they're family.

She drives 1000's of miles, spends untold hours educating, and even though she doesn't put up with drama, she never fails to send uplifting messages that keep her humble and in awe of the world around us.

You'd be hard pressed to find an overall better nonprofit organization dedicated to the standards that all organizations should be held accountable to.

I had the thrill of living on the farm and volunteering. The work is hard and long hours but when you are done at the end of the day your soul is happy. The wolfers are safe, fed and happy. Their joint howling is an amazing, unexplainable feeling. Nancy's dedication is unwaivering.

I first visited Full Moon Farm in 2015 when my daughter volunteered for a week for her senior project. Nancy LaPorta Brown and all the volunteers work tirelessly to care for all the wolfdogs at the sanctuary. As someone who has been on the bod of several wolfdog organizations I have visited many wolfdog rescues and sanctuaries. Full Moon Farm is tops in personal care of each animal. Nancy also takes in any wolfdog that she has space for. She does not turn away the lower content animals that sometimes get overlooked or turned down by other rescues.

There is not a better place nor a better group lead by Nancy Brown in the wolfdog community. Whether it is rescuing animals in need, educating the public/local ACO's or assisting other rescues with transport ect.

Full Moon Farm Wolfdog Sanctuary is an amazing place - staffed by wonderful people who care for the wolfdogs. Nancy LaPorta Brown works tirelessly yet has the time and grace to inform everyone about the wolfdogs she rescues and about wolfdogs in general. My daughter and husband have been three times and my daughtter is spending her 19th birthday celebration by bringing friends to the Howl In to volunteer ! Nancy has been so kind to my daughter Katie even helping her with a research paper and my daughters essay to get into Virginia Wesleyan was based on Nancy & Full Moon Farm. We donate monthly for the dogs we sponsor and send food and participate in the fundraisers. We have decals on the car and spread the word about this wonderful place and the wonderful people, Donna Sharon Sarah John & Jennifer we have come to know because of the sanctuary. We found Nancy and Full Moon Farm accidently by watching a TV show she was featured in.. she impacted us enough to find her in NC. Visit Full Moon Farm and see the beautiful animals who have found a forever home with Nancy when no one else wanted them. Donate monthly, donate once, send food or volunteer your time, you will not be disappointed!

My experience with Full Moon Farm began over a year ago when I located the sanctuary on the internet while doing some research. While I was reviewing information about the sanctuary I noticed they'd be hosting an event while I was in the area and I decided to attend. It was a great event, I learned a great deal of information about the animals and the organization. During that visit I made a personal choice to sponsor one of the animals and kept in touch with the volunteers who run the facility. I visited the sanctuary again on several other occasions months later and discussed possible ways to volunteer and help them out even though I wasn't local. The group is such a great group of people and they work so hard and are so selfless to give the way they do to take care of the animals all on a volunteer basis, I just felt I needed to do what I could to help them out any way possible. I started volunteering helping to raise funds and find opportunities for the sanctuary that are available in an attempt to make things easier for the volunteers taking care of the animals at the sanctuary. Later I was asked to be a Board Member and agreed to accept the responsibility and to be part of the organization in that manner. I couldn't ask for a better group of individuals to work with and have not seen such selfless and giving attitudes from one group of people in a very long time. I commend each volunteer for their time and energy invested in caring for and taking care of those sweet animals that are so deserving of caring hands. I encourage anyone to visit and get involved with this group and these animals.
