Thank you to all of our supporters who donated to Deaf Dogs Rock in the month of January 2022 to keep our mission going! Our Deaf Dogs Rock community has sponsored 25 dogs into rescue in January 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 on #Yearendgiving and the #BettyWhiteChallenge. We are blown away by your kind consideration and support!
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. If you would like to donate to our Rocker Puppy sponsorship program, please click here.
Our amazing Deaf Dogs Rock community sponsored 25 deaf dogs/pups in the new year in the month of January 2022 which is a huge accomplishment in a struggling economy.
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 we have sponsored 1121 deaf dogs (as of 01/31/22) into rescue.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! ~ Christina Lee

Calie, Coda, Clover, Cookie Carl, Cinder and Chase – Green Dogs Unleashed
When a organization reached out for help with a litter a pups that they were having not luck adopting out because they were in a rural area and a few of the puppies were deaf, we reached out to our partner rescue here in Virginia Green Dogs Unleashed to see if they could make room for a litter of puppies. Deaf Dogs Rock offered to not only sponsor the deaf puppies but also sponsor the hearing puppies so all of the pups can be spayed/neutered and fully vetted before they become available for adoption. All the pups have arrived and they are all at separate foster homes to learn new skills, to become socialized and to get all their vetting completed. Thanks to our awesome supporters and the #BettyWhiteChallenge, all seven pups are sponsored into rescue through our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy Program to help with the costs of getting them fully vetted and ready for their forever homes.

When a person reached out to Deaf Dogs Rock because she had two deaf Border Collies we turned to our partner rescue here in Virginia Green Dogs Unleashed, who not only does special needs deaf and deaf/blind dog rescue but they are huge Border Collie Fans. Erika and her children work with Border Collies often training them to do competitive sports for fun and to give each deaf dog a fun job to do. Once the pups are fully vetted, socialized, had some training sessions at GDU’s training facility potential new homes are carefully screened looking for new homes with Border Collie experience and someone who will keep positive reinforcement training/socialization and enrichment a priority.
