Puppy Cake Smash

This year has remained to be unpredictable through the pandemic with Covid-19 affecting us all. Our Team has pivoted yet again, to host our Puppy Cake Smash event virtually, ensuring DWW's strong commitment to maintaining our social responsibility for the safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff.

We hope you enjoy this video of how the puppies celebrated!  As we continue to look for ways to have all of us celebrate this incredible milestone together, please know your commitment and dedication to Dogs with Wings allows us to continue fulfilling our mission and transform lives!
