The core mission of our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy program is to set up each deaf puppy/dog for success by sending them into a experienced special needs rescue where they go into a experienced deaf dog foster home that is 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, work with the deaf dog and accurately evaluate each deaf dog/puppy to make sure to match the dog with the right home once the adoption screening process starts. The adoption screening process is very thorough. Each interested family must fill out an adoption application that asks lots of questions and a full list of references is required to be considered for adoption.

We work with shelters, rescues, private individual and breeders to help get each deaf puppy into our program to make sure each deaf dog/puppy gets the individual training, socialization, and love to grow up to become a cherished member of society. Deaf Dogs Rock is a judgement free zone and are here to help deaf dogs and puppies get a fresh start and a chance at a great life.

When screening potential homes for a deaf dog/puppy, there are many guidelines to follow like checking all references, talking to the applicants 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 each deaf pup up for a successful happy life in their new home. Our Rocker Puppy program financially sponsors each deaf dog/puppy so the dogs can be spay/neutered before they are adopted to a new family. We only work with rescues and advocacy organizations who are committed in making sure each deaf dog/puppy is spay/neutered before being placed in a new home.

It is our number one mission to make sure each deaf dog and puppy gets basic training, socialization. are in a loving and caring foster home where their confidence soars. Our partners set each deaf dog up for success. Jan – June 2018 Deaf Dogs Rock has sponsored a total of 61 deaf dogs and puppies into rescue.

Below are our sponsored Rocker Puppies for the month of July 2018. In July we sponsored 19 dogs for a total of 80 deaf dogs sponsored so far this year. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of our generous supporters who continue to donate so we can continue to help deaf dogs in need. ~Christina Lee – DDR


Thanks to Caroline and her Almost Home Rescue team for getting Sheldon to safety. He flew from Katy TX to Dallas thanks to Pilots and Paws for foster care and after a few weeks he will be heading to  S.N.A.R.R (Special Needs Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation)  in Quinter KS.

Senior deaf dog Rodney

We put out a rescue plea for senior deaf dog Rodney and Barking Mad Animal Rescue in Hemphill TX stepped up to take Rodney into deaf/blind safe zone.


We got word that a little boston terrier puppy was returned to a pet store for a full refund when the new family found out their new puppy was deaf. We reached out to the owner of the pet store and shared with him what we can do to help Bindi the deaf boston puppy. We are so thankful the owners of the shop decided to help Bindi get into our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy program where we would transport Bindi from TN to Virginia and sponsor her into Green Dogs Unleashed where she would go into foster care and start her sign and obedience training while screening for a new home would be done over several weeks. She needs to go to a home with someone committed to keep her into training for her first year so she can be the best good canine citizen she can be. When I transported her I realized what a wonderful puppy she is. She would be a great prospect for Therapy Dog Training because of her laid back personality.


Thanks to Green Dogs Unleashed and the entire HHRT volunteers who got deaf shy lab mix puppy Drew safely to Virginia all the way from Weatherford Tx.


Bonnie and Clyde – Speak St. Louis


So many deaf puppies but thanks to our rescue partners like Speak St. Louis these two deaf puppies are safe and these two are recipients of our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy Program where they were financially sponsored to help out with the cost of vetting each puppy so they can become available for adoption.

Donny, Buddy and Daisy – Deaf Dog Rescue of America

On the West Coast it is raining deaf puppies according to Lisa Tipton the director of The Deaf Dog Rescue of America. She said she has a lot of requests from people and shelters with an abundance of deaf puppies. Meet deaf dogo puppies Donny and Buddy and Aussie girl Daisy who were rescued by our partner rescue Deaf Dog Rescue of America. Deaf Dogs Rock sponsored all three of these deafies through our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy Program. With the help of our supporters these puppies got spay/neutered so they can be available for adoption.



A big shout out to our Boston Terrier rescue warrior friend Lisa Pruitt, David Heine and the entire Boston Terrier Rescue of Florida Team who when we reached out to them about Rocco in an emergency situation, they all jumped into gear and helped Rocco get into rescue where he can go into a loving foster home (with other bostons) and be vetted (to maybe have his eye removed). A big shout out to Pilots and Paws for transporting Rocco to his foster home. Rocco is now at his new foster home where he can settle in, relax and be evaluated. He is in a foster home with other bostons so he can relax and just be a dog.

Zeke and Deke (aka Tucker)  – Speak for The Unspoken – Ohio 

We are seeing so many deaf and deaf/blind Catahoulas and I am sure it is because so many of the back yard breeders are not familiar with what a Double Merle Breeding can do to a litter of puppies. Thanks to Speak For The Unspoken Dog Rescue in Ohio for getting Zeke and Deke into rescue. They are both sponsored through our Rocker Puppy program where their vetting and neutering can be done so they will be available for adoption and find loving homes.


Polexia – Perfect Imperfections Rescue

When we saw Polexia’s sweet face we knew we had to help with her sponsorship to Perfect Imperfections Rescue to take some financial stress off of her rescue so she can be vetted. Isn’t she a beauty?

We are always looking for new rescue partners especially in the Northwest and the Northeast so when we noticed the great work that Anarchy Animal Rescue is doing in the Northeast saving deaf dogs and puppies from down South we wanted to offer our support to help with some of the vetting with incoming deaf dogs and puppies.

Misty, Rowan, and Willow – Anarchy Animal Rescue 

Thanks to our supporters we were able to sponsor Misty, Rowan and Willow’s through our Rocker Puppy Program so they will be spayed/neutered before they become available for adoption. Keep up the good work Anarchy Animal Rescue because we appreciate your efforts in helping deaf dogs get into the safe harbor of your rescue.


Sarah – East Coast Boxer Rescue 

Deaf Dogs Rock put out an urgent rescue plea for deaf dog Sarah who was at the Berkeley Animal Center in Moncks Corner SC and East Coast Boxer Rescue came to her rescue. Thanks to them Sarah was pulled and on her way into a new foster home.

Luna – Florida

When we heard Luna was abandoned by her owner and Pure Hearts Rescue in Florida came to her rescue they needed funds for her vetting so Deaf Dogs Rock sponsored some of Luna’s vetting through our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy program so Pure Hearts can get her the medical attention and spaying she needs to start her on her journey to looking for a new loving home.


On July 25 we put out an URGENT rescue plea for Charlie by offering a $200 rescue sponsorship to a reputable 501c3 Rescue (approved by the shelter) to pull Charlie, get him vetted and find him a loving home. On July 30 we heard from Australian Shepherd Advocates and they sent us a photo of Charlie and their 501c3 paperwork so Deaf Dogs Rock sent in Charlie’s rescue sponsorship. Thanks to the Forney Animal Shelter in Forney Texas for reaching out to us to try to help Charlie find a rescue and thanks to Ronna with Australian Shepherd Advocates for pulling Charlie and contacting us to let us know he is safe.
