Thank you to all of our supporters who donated to Deaf Dogs Rock in the month of February 2022 to keep our mission going! Our Deaf Dogs Rock community has sponsored 17 dogs into rescue in February 2022.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for continuing to support our mission to save one deaf dog at a time. We also want to give a huge shout out and THANK YOU to every single person and company who donated to Deaf Dogs Rock in December, January and February so we can continue to sponsor deaf dogs and puppies into rescue.
It takes a tribe of animal lovers to support Deaf Dogs Rock to continue to carry out our mission. If you would like to help sponsor a deaf dog out of a kill shelter into the safe arms of rescue, please click here to Donate.
The core mission of our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy sponsorship program is to set up each deaf puppy/deaf dog for success by sending them into a experienced special needs rescue where they go into a experienced deaf dog foster homes who are committed to training and socializing each deaf dog that comes into their care. This way, each foster advocate gets the opportunity to live with the deaf dog for awhile, work with the deaf dog, and accurately evaluate each deaf dog/puppy to make sure the organization makes the very best match for each deaf dog with the right home once the adoption screening process starts.
Deaf Dogs Rock works with shelters, rescues, private individuals, and breeders to help get each deaf puppy into our Rocker Puppy sponsorship program and into rescue. By doing so, each deaf pup gets the individual training, vetting, socialization, and TLC to grow up to become a cherished member of society. Deaf Dogs Rock is a judgement free zone and our number one priority will always be to help deaf dogs and puppies get a fresh start and a chance at a great life.
When potential homes are screened for a deaf dog/puppy, each partner rescue has a specific set of guidelines to follow when considering a new home for example like checking all references, talking to the applicant’s veterinarian, and performing a thorough home visit to make sure each home is a safe place for a deaf or deaf/blind dog. This is why our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy is so important to set up each deaf pup for a successful happy life in their new home. Our Rocker Puppy sponsorship program financially sponsors deaf dogs/puppies so each pup can be vaccinated and spay/neutered before they are adopted to a new family. We only work with rescue partners and advocacy organizations who are committed in making sure each deaf pup is spay/neutered before being placed in a new home.

Our amazing Deaf Dogs Rock community sponsored 17 deaf dogs/pups in February 2022 which is a huge accomplishment in a struggling economy. So far in the first 8 weeks of 2022, our DDR community has sponsored 42 deaf pups into rescue.
Thanks to the financial support of our loyal Deaf Dogs Rock community, D.D.R. can continue to help deaf dogs in need. So far since our start of our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy Sponsorship program, our community has sponsored 1138 deaf dogs and pups into rescue (as of 2/28/22).
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your kind consideration and continued financial support.
Sprout – White Diamond Double Merle Rescue
Thanks to our friends at White Diamond Double Merle Dane Rescue for getting sweet deaf puppy Sprout from Texas into their special needs rescue. Sprout will be a recipient of our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy sponsorship program to help with her vetting to get her ready for adoption in the near future.
Deuce – Speak Rescue and Sanctuary
When a family reached out to Deaf Dogs Rock with a 12 week old Golden Doodle who seemed to have separation anxiety and they needed a rescue to take the puppy because they were not up for the sleepless nights. We reached out to Speak Rescue in Sanctuary to see if they could make room for Doodle puppy Deuce. Deuce arrived at Speak on 2/2/22 so the Speak team thought Deuce would be a perfect name for him. Deuce will go into foster care and learn positive reinforcement crate training and enrichment along with a structured routine to teach him it is okay to be in the crate.
Thanks to our friends Patricia and Vern Kerst for working so hard in their furniture upcycling business to support us so we can sponsor deaf puppies like Deuce into a special needs rescue.

Leia – Green Dogs Unleashed
When a person reached out to Deaf Dogs Rock for help with a 6 month old deaf Great Pyrenees puppy we reached out to Green Dogs Unleashed to see if we could sponsor Leia into their rescue.

Rebel – Green Dogs Unleashed
When a person reached out to Deaf Dogs Rock for help with their deaf little red heeler puppy we knew we had to help so we reached out to Green Dogs Unleashed to see if they had room for Rebel. As luck would have it Rebel was here in Virginia not to far from the GDU headquarters so he arrived at GDU and will be going into an experienced foster care home for additional training and vetting before he is available for adoption.

Boone and Dani – Iowa and Nebraska – Green Dogs Unleashed – Virginia
When we heard from a person in Nebraska and a person in Iowa who had deaf pups that needed rescue and happened to both be right outside of Omaha Nebraska we reached out to Erika with Green Dogs Unleashed Rescue to see if there was any way we could get these two on a transport together and into rescue at GDU. Erika put together a great plan and got a couple of volunteer pilots to fly these adorable deaf pups together on the same two plane
Thanks to Laura Cooper for sponsoring Boone and Dani into rescue through sales of her beautiful sea glass art. Laura does whimsical sea glass artwork inspired by nature through her art company Wildflower Sea glass and Pottery. 100% of Laura’s profits go to her favorite rescue organizations and she also lives with her deaf beagle Snoopy so she is inspired to give to Deaf Dogs Rock so we can continue to sponsor deaf and deaf/blind shelter pups into rescue.
