Without Wolves, there would be no dogs.





Nancy Brown, President:

Nancy became interested in wolfdogs in 1994, when she got her first one. Her love for these special animals has grown to the Presidency of Full Moon Farm, Inc. Ending the cycle of abuse and abandonment of wolfdogs, and all "pets" is first and foremost on her mind and in her heart. By working through Full Moon Farm, she is able to "make a difference" in the lives of the rescues and residents here.


Jay Alcombright, Volunteer:

Jay heard about the Farm when he saw Nancy and River at the 2010 Charlotte Pet Expo. He was helping with one of the other rescues he volunteers at, and came over to get some information. He started volunteering at the Farm in June 2010. "I have been known to do anything at anytime on the farm. I enjoy just being outside with the pups and filling in Banjo and Yeddy’s excavations!"

Andrea Brooks, Volunteer Photographer:

"I first found Full Moon Farm while doing a photographic documentary for school... and once it was finished, I never left! It's hard to get away from the wonderful spirit and love that exists up here on the mountain, and being allowed to capture that in images is a true blessing. While I'm a little shy about going in with most of the woofers, I do have a few favorites - as you can tell by my profile picture - some of our guys are total divas for the camera!"


L. Kamala Beissinger, Volunteer & Trainer-in-Training

Kamala has been in love with the earth and it's wildlife her whole life.  She grew up in a household with German Shepherd dogs and fell in love wolves from watching movies like, The Journey of Natty Gann.  Kamala earned a BA in Creative Writing and works as a full-time Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Yoga Teacher and spends every free minute with the wolfdogs of Full Moon Farm.  
Peace and Love,Kamala


Meg Ellis, Volunteer:

Meg has been volunteering with the farm since the winter of 2004. She became involved when Nancy sold her parents thier house. Meg has been hooked ever since. "I started out volunteering doing chores and ended up doing my senior project with them too. I help out with chores, but my main focus is doing education and fundraising. I currently work 2 jobs and a full time mommy to a 5.5 month old daughter. Volunteering at the sanctuary has been the best thing for me and is a great place to be. The animals need it, just as much as I do. Thank you for letting me be a part of the pack!"


Donna Wiedrich, Volunteer:

Donna has been involved with Full Moon Farm since 2010. She is a passionate animal lover and animal activist. She first became involved with Full Moon Farm because of her 8 year old son, Daniel, who adores wolves and wolfdogs but she soon fell in love with the animals and the people and has been hooked ever since. Donna has over 13 years of experience working in the nonprofit world and helps with fundraising and grant research and anything else that's needed. She also loves to spend time with the woofers and helps at the Farm whenever she can. Her son Daniel has been "adopted" by the volunteers and staff and can always be seen at the Howl Ins spending every penny he can talk Mom out of in the Gift Den!


Pam & Dave Michael, Volunteers:

Pam and Dave came to Full Moon Farm when they retired and moved to the area 2 1/2 years ago from California. In their "old" life, Pam was an elementary school secretary, and Dave worked for Apple, and they lived with two wolfdogs, one being a rescue. They chose Waynesville, to be located directly between their daughter and granddaughter, and their son and daughter-in-law. Because of their love of wolfdogs and experience with their own, they chose to seek out and volunteer at Full Moon Farm. Most Thursdays you can find Pam and Dave scooping, playing with and feeding the animals, then helping with building projects, or installing the name signs they custom make for each and every wolfdog at the farm. And to quote them: "Living in the mountains and volunteering at FMF is awesome!"
