February 2017 was another busy month for us here at Deaf Dogs Rock but we are proud to say many people took advantage of our Rocker Puppy Program and we sponsored some amazing deaf and deaf/vision impaired dogs into partner organizations. What is so great about this program as soon as the puppies get delivered from their transports they can start their sign training, socialization, and also attend basic obedience classes. When each dog or puppy arrives at their final destinations, they get an opportunity to decompress, learn the basics of living with a foster family, (which consists of a structured schedule of eating, playing, learning their sign, potty training, and socialization) so they can have a strong training foundation in which to build upon to be set up for success.
All in all in February we sponsored 13 deaf dogs into partner rescues across the country. Do you know what this news means? It means Deaf Dogs Rock has sponsored a total of 21 deaf dogs in the last 60 days! It’s because of your support that Deaf Dogs Rock can continue to sponsor deaf dogs into our amazing special needs rescue partners.

Deaf Dogs Rock sponsored these three deaf double merle aussie puppies into Green Dogs Unleashed here in Virginia. Erika and her fosters at GDU do an amazing job getting each puppy into experienced foster homes so they can start their potty training, socialization and foundation sign training while potential adoptive families are being screened.

When we heard Agatha a deaf puppy at the City of Salem Animal shelter came in to the shelter, we wanted to make sure her spay surgery at a local vet would be covered so she can become available for adoption soon. Deaf Dogs Rock sponsored her spay surgery.
