Wharton County Officials Conduct Animal Cruelty Investigation

Thank you for your support and for shining a light on the animal welfare issues at Smiling Dog Farms in Wharton, Texas. 

We learned today that several Wharton County officials visited Smiling Dog Farms yesterday in response to our petition to conduct an animal cruelty investigation. You’ll recall that five months ago, we filed an animal cruelty complaint with the Wharton County Sheriff’s Office and the Humane Society of the United States. 

Smiling Dog Farms has made several sheltering improvements since we visited on August 29th and 30th, 2014. 

While, the Wharton County Sheriff's Office found no evidence of animal cruelty during their visit yesterday, animal cruelty is not our bar for quality of life.

Our Sanctuary Alert remains in place because Smiling Dog Farms remains a rescue in crisis. For the latest updates, please visit: http://www.sanctuarywatch.org/alert-smiling-dog-f...
