Carrollton, KY: Mutt Needs Rescue ASAP

Contact Tammie at 502-732-6040 or

These are the cutest pups that I have seen in a while. They have been at the shelter for over 3 weeks. We wanted to make sure that they did not break with parvo after giving them their vaccine. It has been 2 weeks today since they had their vaccine so I think they are good to go. Both are girls and the little white one is blue-eyed and deaf. She has some speckling on her eyes but that is the only coloring she has. I believe they will be big dogs as they have tree trunk legs and big feet. They need rescue ASAP as they will be first on the list. They are approx 10-12 weeks old.

Pull fee is $20.00 and we have a PayPal account on our Petfinder site listed below.

Manhattan, NY: Pit Bull MIx in Shelter

LADY – A889135 – 7 month old female pittie mix – 47lbs – OS, 2/18

Contact Info:

New Hope Liaison, Manhattan Shelter

Animal Care and Control of NYC
C: 917-578-6372

Lady was living in a home with a child. Her and the child were playing together, but then she scratched him and the family brought her to the shelter. She is now off hold and ready for her new life! 

A volunteer wrote: Lady is a 7 month old pittie mix who arrived at the shelter on 2/18. Lady was brought to the shelter by her owner, who said she no longer wanted Lady because she had scratched the child in the home. Lady has a beautiful white coat with big brown eyes and a big black nose, she is beyond adorable and reminds me so much of the Coca-Cola polar bears! Lady is quite the social butterfly at the shelter and seems interested in making friends with every person or creature she meets, and this includes her own reflection in glass doorways! Lady seems to have grasped the concept of housebreaking already, as she goes to the bathroom immediately when taken outside, and also can sit down when prompted, but she will still need some basic training like any other puppy. For the past few days I have been at the shelter I have noticed Lady sleeping soundly in her kennel during periods of incredibly loud barking and noise, I finally took her out for a walk today and have confirmed my suspicions that she is in fact deaf. Because of this, Lady will require her puppy training a different and obviously non-verbal form, and will need a forever family willing help her with this. Since Lady is very visually oriented, curious, and loves her treats I'm sure she will pick up hand signals quite quickly. It has in fact been proven that all dogs respond better and learn their commands faster though hand signals rather than verbal commands alone. Having fostered deaf dogs previously, I can tell you that my own hearing dog learned all of hand signal commands just through watching me interact with her deaf foster siblings, and I still sometimes find myself signing to her rather than speaking, as it becomes a habit quite quickly! I would urge anyone looking for a dog to please consider this gorgeous girl despite her "disability," as you would be hard pressed to find another so wiggly and delicious. I really hope there is someone out there who will see Lady not as "special needs" but rather as just "special," because that is exactly what she is! Lady is waiting for you at the Manhattan Shelter!

Temple, GA: Labrador Mix Heads to Shelter

 Black Lab/Chow Mix (Temple)

Date: 2011-02-22, 10:59PM EST
Reply to: [Errors when replying to ads?]

FREE TO GOOD HOME. This is a 12 year old female Black Lab named Athena. We have had her since she was 6 weeks old. The only noticeable Chow is the black spot on the tung. She is very sweet and is good with children. She would be great for an elderly person. Due to her age she is not very active but she is in good health. Athena had a physical last December. Her only medical problem is she is deaf. She is an indoor dog and likes a pet door so she can go in and out as she pleases. My wife passed away 1 year ago and I am raising a 13 year old grandson and will soon have a 5 year old grandson to raise. I am having to move and will not able to take Athena. I need to find a good home for her by March 15 or I will have to place her in an animale shelter. The rescue shelters I have called don't have any room for her. Please call Richard @ 770-347-8494.

Owenton, KY: Pit Bull to be Dropped Off at Shelter


Foster or Rescue needed ASAP please! Contact: or 502-514-1897 or

Adoptive family wants to return after 8 months due to Pinky not getting along with their female dog; Pinky is wonderful with all people, children and male dogs.  In talking with the people last night, they are not happy about returning Pinky, but know of no other recourse.  I am to call them in a week, hopefully, with a foster situation for Pinky.  We can use help with finding foster for her instead of having Pinky resort back to a shelter setting.  Remember, too, Pinky is deaf.

Anderson, SC: Boxer's Time is Running Out

Contact info:

3 weeks left for this boy and I really want to get him saved. He is extremely nice.  

Thank you May xoxo

Went to see this beautiful boy today. He was very sweet and happy to get out in  the fresh air. He is a neutered, high HW positive deaf boxer boy. He has full  tail, but hey a tail is good. Tumor of some sort on left leg but all in all a  sweet boy. I receive many kisses from this
boy. We tested him with a large  male dog and he did wonderful. We also tested him with a small female dog and  he was just fine. No issues, no aggression just wanting to play. CATS ARE A NO  NO. He does not like cats as I found out trying to get him into the park. This  boy has only 3 weeks left at the shelter and then he will be put to sleep. Please tag all boxer rescues that you can. I will help in transport of course and will pull him from the shelter. He is just too sweet to loose his life. I fell in love with him myself. Please help me help him.

Here is the link to his petfinder and all the information is attached to the  link.

Wantagh, NY: Pit Bull Mix's Time is Limited

Contact info:

Got to get her out of the shelter. Help! Babs is at the Town of Hempstead Shelter in Wantagh, NY.

They say she is Dalmatian/Pit Mix about 1 1/2 years old. She is spayed and updated on shots. Babs is totally deaf. She's been to K-Joy (local radio station) for their advertisement. She is friendly with people -- ok with other dogs. This sweetheart is deaf and needs some tender loving care, she's a special need dog. Please help us to help her get out of the shelter.

Marshall, NC: Boxer Needs a Home

Her name is Izzabella, or Izzy for short. She's approximately 4 years old, spayed, microchipped, UTD on vaccines, HW negative. She is deaf, was trained to hand signals and crate trained when I fostered her. How much of that was retained in the new home I'm not sure. She is being returned due to "issues". She needs to be in a
one dog only home or in a foster home that has time and energy to spend with her. She did well for me here with my Dane/Boxer mix and my Bullmastiff but it took a few weeks of them working out their differences and learning their place on the totum pole. I currently have too many shelter fosters to take her back in. She LOVES people and kids and was wonderful with my 4 small children. She's a smart girl and like any boxer will get into trouble if she's bored. Exercise, attention, and a person willing to teach her and learn from her is what's going to be key to finding her the perfect home.

The boxer rescue that she is with now has begged and begged for a one dog only home to foster to but to no avail. No one wants to see her crated a majority of the time as it's only going to make her slide downhill. Can anyone help?

New Haven, CT: Pit Bull Mix Seeks a Home

One-year-old Banks was left in the local dog park. He played with the other dogs in the snow as he awaited our arrival to pick him up.The concerned citizen pointed him out in the park but he was hard to spot because he blended in with the snow banks, hence his new name. Banks is DEAF but responds well to face recognition and some hand signals. He would love a home where he will receive extra training for his disability. He is very sweet and cuddly but does play like a wild man at times and it is hard to get his attention in order to have him chill out. 

Los Angeles, CA: A Home Needed for a Boxer

Charlie is a 2 years old who spends way to much time by herself. We have had her for about 1 1/2 years, but would like to find her a new home where someone will be home with her.  She is very smart, loveable, playful, good with other dogs and kids.  However, when left alone she gets herself into trouble.  I've atached a picture of Charlie. Please let me know if you can help. We live in the Los Angeles area. West Hills specifically.  Thank you.

Amherst, VA: English Bulldog Mix Needs a Home

This is Alice, she’s a sweet, sweet dog but since she is deaf we are having trouble placing her –  since she can’t hear other dogs approaching her – it would be best for her to have a home without another dog and I’d feel better without small children also.  Alice would do well in both an active home or a laid back home, she just goes with the flow and has couch-potato qualities J

She’s one of the most affectionate dogs we have, very laid back and easy to care for.. a staff favorite. Transport help available.

Conroe, Texas: JRT Mix Needs to Leave Shelter

Hi All:

This little deaf Jack Russell Terrier mix has been at animal control in Conroe Texas since sometime in January and no one has been able to come to her aid. Mya probably got lost in the Christmas commotion and well, you know there are so many and it is easy to forget.
Anyway. Just received an update on Mya. She is still there and she still needs out of the shelter before it is too late. I have one completely blind dog and one JRT losing his sight to cataracts. Helping these special needs dogs is particularly rewarding. They appreciate love and a safe place more than you can imagine. I know that this little girl would too.
So, please look at her picture and consider adopting, rescuing, fostering for a rescue or donating to help a rescue defray any medical and/or boarding expenses. If you are unable to help her, please post far and wide. Don't let distance deter you -- I know that we can figure out how to get her transported to whomever has a space in their home and heart.
