We have been able to find new loving forever homes for many of the adoptable dogs that came to the farm. They were sent here when it appeared that all hope for adoption had disappeared. These dogs would probably not be alive today without Smiling Dog Farms. And, they would not be enjoying their “happily ever after” without the tireless efforts of our wonderful Adoption Partners.Adoptable dogs that have run out of time at a shelter are welcome to come here.These dogs, through no fault of their own, were abandoned or dumped at shelters. Or they were picked up by animal control and no one came to claim them. Shelters have serious space and time constraints. If dogs aren’t adopted quickly, they have to give up their kennel space for new dogs coming in - and so, dogs die simply because they were not selected. They haven’t done anything wrong. They have no issues that make them unadoptable. They are normal, healthy, lovable dogs that unfortunately ended up on death row. Caring people contact Smiling Dog Farms about these dogs in the hope that, if they are given more time, a loving family will find them. Smiling Dog Farms will step in for them because they ARE facing certain death. They have nowhere else to go. We place them in our New Directions Adoption Program, and with the help of our Adoption Partners, we work to find homes for them. For these dogs, we hope their stay at the farm will be short lived and that they will soon have their happy ending!Please click on this link to see the dogs we currently have available for adoption.Please click on this link to see some of our dogs that have found their forever families.The dogs that come to Smiling Dog Farms have nowhere else to go. This is the end of the line for them. When a dog has no other options and is threatened with euthanasia, it is welcome here! At Smiling Dog Farms, we do not turn dogs away for any reason, regardless of breed, age, health, or behavioral issues. Dogs that are deemed unadoptable for any reason are welcomed as permanent residents of our Sanctuary. Here, they find a safe haven where they can just be dogs, living out their lives being loved for who they are.Most of them have no one to sponsor them. Most need help to pay for their care and maintenance.Please click on this link to see our Sanctuary dogs and read their stories.A 501(c)3 Non-Profit Corporation Smiling Dog Farms is Absolutely, Unequivocally NO-KILL!!!We Should Never Be a Dog’s First Choice ...When a dog has exhausted all its other options, still has no prospects, and is looking at euthanasia as its only alternative, it is welcome here! We are here for the dogs that have been unable to find a good home, despite the best efforts of the rescue community ... dogs that have nowhere else to go. Sometimes, a dog’s behaviors prevent it from being adopted. Sometimes, it’s a medical condition or age or even its breed. Sometimes an adoptable dog has just run out of time at a shelter. For many dogs, we are their “Last Resort.” We are their only chance to survive.We Should Always Be the “Back-Up Plan” or the Last Resort ... If another rescue group can find a conventional home for a dog, we support that as the best plan for the dog.All dogs deserve an opportunity to find a loving family.We Have No Restrictions ... We do not limit the kinds of dogs that can come here. Dogs of any breed, any age, any behavioral or medical issue are welcome. We do not “evaluate” dogs before accepting them. We accept dogs who have failed evaluations at shelters and rescues elsewhere.How Do We Decide Who Comes Here?We have only a few criteria, all of which qualify a dog to come live here: 1) A dog that is considered unadoptable for any reason by a legitimate rescue organization or law enforcement agency. 2) A dog at a shelter that is out of time, out of options, and is facing euthanasia.3) A dog that, through no fault of its own, has lost its home and has no where else to go.Do You Know a Dog Who Should Come Live Here?Please review our Intake Procedure and then contact us atintake@SmilingDogFarms.org or call us at 979-257-3377 or toll free at 877-975-0914.What Kinds of Dogs Come Here?
