Thank you to all of our supporters who donated to Deaf Dogs Rock in the month of September to keep our mission going! Our Deaf Dogs Rock community has sponsored 16 deaf dogs into rescue in August 2022. What a great accomplishment in a struggling economy.

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 this year in 2022,  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. Deaf Dogs Rock spent between $5000 and $7000.00  each month on Rocker 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.

The core mission of our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy Rescue 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 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 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 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 Puppy Rescue Sponsorship program is so important to 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 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 be before being placed in a new home (unless they are Great Danes or Dalmatians).

Our amazing Deaf Dogs Rock community sponsored 16 deaf dogs/pups in September 2022 which is a huge accomplishment in a recession. So far in the first 32 weeks of 2022, our DDR community has sponsored 188 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 Rescue Sponsorship program, our community has sponsored 1284 deaf dogs and pups into rescue (as of 9/30/22).

Below are the recaps of each deaf puppy we sponsored into a partner rescue in the month of September 2022

Casper – Happy Tails Rescue – OK 

Casper is a deaf and vision impaired boy who was found as a stray and taken to the Stillwater OK Animal Shelter in Mid July. Happy Tails Rescue OK was tagged in their Facebook post and shelter was searching for his owners. Unfortunately no one stepped up to claim him and he would soon be on the euthanasia list as the animal shelter was at max capacity so Happy Tails Rescue OK had their volunteer Erica went to go get him and foster him. Casper will be a recipient of our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy Sponsorship Program to help our partners at Happy Tails Rescue with his vetting expenses.

Polly – Passion 4 Pits Rescue

When we saw a plea for medical help with sweet deaf dog Polly we knew we had to help so we sent Passion 4 Pits Rescue the additional $335 so Polly could get her ear surgery done. One of Polly’s ears has developed a hematoma and needs surgery to repair it along with ear cultures done.

Sweet Bundle of Joy From an Arkansas Shelter – Pink Heart Rescue – 

When we saw this deaf Chihuahua girl Holly at a shelter in Arkansas we put up a rescue plea which included a rescue sponsorship to a reputable foster based 501c3 rescue to pull her. We were so excited when we heard from our friends at the special needs rescue Pink Heart Rescue had pulled her. Holly is a recipient of our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy Rescue Sponsorship Fund to help with the cost of  her vetting. Thanks Pink Heart Rescue Team for saving Holly!

Joshua and Astro – Amazing Lethal White Aussies of Arizona Rescue 

This handsome deaf boy is Joshua. He is an eight month old Australian Shepherd/Great Pyrenees/Double Merle mix. Our friends at Amazing Aussie Lethal White Rescue of AZ saved Joshua from euthanization when he was being held at a New Mexico shelter for not being “normal”.   Fortunately a shelter volunteer offered to take him to their emergency foster in Albuquerque within hours of Amazing Aussies being contacted. Joshua enjoyed a week stay, then he caught a flight to Phoenix, AZ with Pilots N Paws Pilot Brad. Joshua is a recipient of our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy Rescue sponsorship program to help with his vetting costs.


This cute little deaf puppy is Astro. He is four months old and is full of energy and is quite fun. Astro was rescued from a breeder that labeled the breed as Texas Heelers. His DNA comes back as Australian Shepherd/Border Collie/Australian Cattle Dog. He’s going to make a someone a smart and sassy companion! He is also a recipient of our Deaf Dogs Rock Rocker Puppy Rescue sponsorship program to help Amazing Aussies Lethal White Rescue of Arizona with his vetting to get him ready for adoption. If you are interested in adopting either Joshua or Astro, contact Amazing Aussies first to see if they are still available by the time this is published. Astro is sponsored in part by Kay Greany who we helped find her daughter’s deaf boxer a new home after her daughter had passed of Cancer. Thank you Kay for your kind consideration and donation.
