Transport Canceled for Denny & Axel
We were unable to find W. Texas volunteers, so the transport had to cancel



They're going to an incredible rescue where they will find forever families!
These are two sweet puppies -- ten months old -- love everyone!
Great personalities!
There are two more affectionate dogs going to the same rescue...
We were going to do a second transport once Denny & Axel got there


We have found a paid transport
who will take all four dogs
for $900 (that's only $225 per dog)
If you can help us cover this cost, please mail your check to
Smiling Dog Farms
P.O. Box 743
Wharton, TX  77488
Please note in the memo line your donation is for transport
Thank You...
for trying so hard to help us set up this free, volunteer transport
and a special thanks to all of you who offered to drive for our babies!
It's just really hard finding W Texas drivers!
(If you know any, please have them contact us for future transports!)
Extra special thanks to Katrina who worked so hard for our babies!
