Aramis was rescued from an abusive situation. He is a very sweet boy! He is deaf. His rescuer has been trying to find him a home – and thought he had but it fell through at the last minute! The problem now is that his rescuer leaves for Cuba for a year – at the end of this month! And Aramis has NO PLACE TO GO BUT THE SHELTER!

Picasso is a well cared for socialized grey and white deaf cat with a back leg deformity. He was found in a stray cat colony in the winter and rescued by myself and a colleague. The twisted back leg led us to believe he was badly injured, but an x-ray proved that the defect was either there since birth or due to a bad injury that healed without medical assistance. He was checked for disease, neutered, given all shots and deworming aid. The vets' decided that amputation of the back leg would not help his mobility since he seems to use it to get around just fine. We decided to not place him back in the colony since it would seem he had a hard enough life as it was. The fact that he was also deaf made his little story that much more incredible. He survived for two years in the wild like this!

$175.00 has been raised for the rescue who takes this pit bull. Contact Lisa if you can help this deaf white pit, who is in Shafter, California at: email@example.com There is a deaf pit girl at Shafter. She was spayed/microchipped/vetted at our mobile clinic in July in Bakersfield and got out of her owner's home somehow. We called the owner for two days in two languages, and she did not call us back. I gave the info to the shelter staff, and they were able to reach the owner. She did get our messages, but did not return the calls or the emails. This woman knows that her dog is going to die. She was told by the shelter manager. The dog has been there since 8/11, and is on the euth list today – they are giving me two more days to see if we can network her around. She surrendered the dog today, as she doesn’t have the money to pay to get her out. It’s not that much, so she obviously doesn’t care about the dog. Do you have room? Do you know of anyone who might take her? I am hoping to get this dog out of the shelter on all fours and into a rescue that will find her a good owner that cares about her the second time around. Here is her petfinder link from the Shafter shelter:

I have a 5 yr old male Blind, Deaf and Epileptic Aussie Cattle Dog that I need to rehome ASAP. I'm living out of a hotel and I don't think its fair for him plus he's becoming a liability. I'm starting to work full time and I'm not gonna always be home to take care of him like before.
I'm from MD but I'll be in Town from Tues 18th to Mon 24th. If you would like him please, let me know asap! He is Free... I just want to have him go to a wonderful home! I'm almost out and can't afford anymore meds. Please don't let me waste this perfectly good well behaved dog.
1 year old neutered and fully vetted English Setter mix. His name is Tucker and he is microchipped. Seems very smart. Owner returned him to the shelter as soon as they found out he was deaf. They had an awful little 4 year old boy who was running all over the shelter terrorizing all of the animals. I am sure that had some affect on Tucker.

Bolt was rescued from Tri-City Animal Shelter on 8/21/09. He is super friendly and sweet. He might be deaf but that doesn't stop him from being a happy and spunky little dog. He's playful with other dogs. No sure about cats. Bolt is very affectionate, loves to snuggle and give you kisses. Kids 10 yrs+. More info. to come.

Chewybacca, a white deaf pit pull who had apparently been used as a BAIT DOG and who was abused (even more) by his owner. In addition to his many bite wounds, he has three distinct raw strips around his neck where a collar or chain was embedded.
I'm sure his deafness makes it difficult for him to process everything. His skin needs work (rather scabby), and he clearly was malnourished. The shelter director said he had a scraping for mange, and that the test came back negative.
Chewy is WONDERFUL with people...he leans against you for more petting and is very grateful for attention. There were several dogs around, and he didn't seem interested in most of them. However, he was extremely interested in an adolescent shepherd pup. It was difficult to tell if he simply wanted to socialize with him...or would have been aggressive with him. The shelter director thinks he needs to be an only dog; but she says she recommends that with all pits. Anyone with other dogs would really need to test him out with them.
I don't know about cats...but given his background (sometimes cats are also used for bait animals, of course) I would be very cautious about placing him with them unless tested with them first.
We'd really like to get this poor boy out of this shelter into a permanent home or with a reputable rescue group. Any assistance you can provide in getting the word out about him would be appreciated. We can help with transport to the metro Atlanta area if he is going to another rescue group if that would be helpful.
Thank you for your help!!!!
From shelter director:
This sweet Pit Bull was brought in by the Habersham County Animal Control after receiving a call that this dog was being used to fight. Chewy is about 2 years old, neutered, and is deaf. He has bite wounds from head to toe and 3 deep gouges in his neck from a tight chain. A couple days after Chewy arrived we gave him a medicated bath followed by an oatmeal shampoo to
soothe his skin. His moans of relief reminded us of Chewbaca from Star Wars and so this boy was named Chewy. There was such relief in his eyes as he leaned into his bather. With treatment his skin has greatly improved and he genuinely seems to appreciate all the attention and love he gets here..
As shelter manager my dilemna is that I should euthanize this dog as unhealthy, unadoptable since we are so over-crowded. However, because of his sweet disposition I feel he is worthy of saving. The very least this boy deserves is a loving home and he will be a faithful and loving companion. Please help. Chewy's days are numbered.

This truly, truly broke my heart and it is what is happening to many, many animals everywhere. The body language and look on this deaf pit bull communicate a lot to us what he is going through. We need to give equal attention and money to animals who are abused and neglected by humans. It makes it so easy to lose faith in humanity but I can't because I know there are good people out there who are nothing like these low life scumbags.

This beautiful girl, Lilly Rose, is 4 1/2 years old and deaf and she needs a home, preferably where she can be the only cat or with young kittens. She is up-to-date on her shots and front declawed. Lily Rose gets along with dogs better than cats because other cats from previous home bullied her and she is fearful. In foster home, she is adjusting wonderfully to a bully-free environment. She is affectionate and sweet. She would make a great addition in a home with a cat friendly dog as she enjoys playing with a dog and have become buds with foster's dogs. Contact Sally at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in Lily Rose.
