Thank you to all of our supporters who donated to Deaf Dogs Rock in the month of November 2023 to keep our mission going! Our Deaf Dogs Rock community has sponsored 14 deaf dogs/pups into rescue this November. What a great accomplishment in a struggling economy with the start of our fall season.
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 who continues to support Deaf Dogs Rock in the first 11 months of 2023 so we can continue to sponsor deaf dogs and puppies into rescue.
We also want to thank the Bethany Hagan and the Florence May Canine Rescue Trust who sent in a generous donations to Deaf Dogs Rock so we can continue to sponsor deaf and deaf/blind dogs out of kill shelters into the safe arms of rescue and so we can also provide rescue transports for deaf dogs in need.
It takes a tribe of animal lovers to support Deaf Dogs Rock to continue to carry out our mission of helping one deaf dog at a time. Deaf Dogs Rock spends between $3000 and $5000.00 each month on Rocker Dog/Puppy Rescue sponsorships! 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.
Every single day on our Deaf Dogs Rock FB page you will see Rescue posts which we put up for shelters across the country trying to get deaf dogs out of over crowded shelters before their time is up and they are euthanized. Sometimes a deaf dog who is surrendered only has a day or two for the opportunity to be pulled by a reputable foster based rescue so that is why you will see our organizations offer $200-$300 on almost every rescue plea post we put up to encourage rescues to help a deaf dog in need. Without the financial offer of sponsorships these deaf dogs would surely die within a few days.
The core mission of our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Dog/Puppy Rescue sponsorship program is to set up each deaf dog or puppy for success by sending them into a experienced special needs rescue where they can go into a experienced deaf dog foster homes. The foster homes are committed to training and socializing each deaf dog that comes into their care before they are available for adoption. This way, each foster advocate gets the opportunity to live with the deaf pup 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 when it comes to finding the right home for that particular deaf dog.
Deaf Dogs Rock works directly with shelters, rescues, private individuals, and breeders to help get each deaf puppy into our Rocker Dog/Puppy Rescue 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 our rescue partners screen potential new homes for a deaf dog/puppy, each 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 Dog/Puppy Rescue Sponsorship program is so important to get the deaf dog out of the shelter (or from an individual) and help our partner rescues set up each deaf pup for a successful happy life in their new home by helping each rescue with vetting expenses so each puppy ends up in a rescue that specifically advocates for them. Our Rocker Dog/Puppy Rescue 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 (unless they are Great Danes or Dalmatians which need to done after 12 months of age).
Our amazing Deaf Dogs Rock community sponsored another 14 deaf dogs/pups in November, 2023 which is a huge accomplishment in a recession. So far this year our DDR community has sponsored 174 deaf pups into rescue in the first eleven months of 2023. So far since the beginning of our Rocker Dog/Puppy Program several years ago, Deaf Dogs Rock has sponsored 1505 deaf dogs into rescue (as of 11/30/23).

Uncle Chuck – Bring Em Home Animal Rescue – Maryland
Above photo: Uncle Chuck on his freedom ride from BARCS to Bring ‘Em Home Rescue in Baltimore, MD
Deaf Dogs Rock works with BARCS often (Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter) in Baltimore Maryland so when they sent us an urgent plea for Chuck we immediately put out a Rescue Plea with an added sponsorship hoping that a reputable foster based 501c3 Rescue would step up and help him. Upon examination at BARCS it was evident that sweet deaf dog Chuck has a hypermetric, wobbly gait. Chuck was surrendered to the shelter because his owner no longer wanted him and he stated, that Chuck is a good boy, around 2 years old and he also informed the BARCS team that Chuck is deaf and does fall over when trying to eat or drink. Because of his neurological issues we felt it was important to try to put out a rescue plea with a financial sponsorship in homes that a rescue would help Chuck. We are beyond thankful to Leah Biddinger and her rescue team with Bring ‘Em Home Rescue in Baltimore for pulling Chuck and getting him into the safe arms of rescue.
Thank you to each and every person who supports our Deaf Dogs Rock mission to help one deaf or deaf/blind dog at a time land in a place that is safe and secure and find a loving forever home. We could not do this without all your support. Wishing you all many many blessings.
