Alexandria, VA: 4 Cats Have Until Tuesday to Get Help!


Sorry I've been busily out and about looking for places. It's been pretty exhausting. I've had no luck. I'm still trying to search. I was wondering if you knew of any rescues that may be able to help? I would be able to pay a fee, etc. I'm starting to worry because I haven't gotten any response.

I have tried contacting so many rescues. Currently I'm in a situation where I have lost my apartment, and I am living out of motels. I currently have 4 cats that I am looking for homes for them. Out of all, Charlie is the deaf one. I have no family or friends to help, and my absolute last resort would be taking them to a shelter where they would likely be euthanized because of kitten season. I have grown exhausted of looking for options and it has really taken a mental toll on me, and I was wondering if your organization could help or at least point me into the right direction of any rescues or organizations. I've tried other organizations, and a lot of the cat rescues around my area to no avail. Even if it's temporary shelter for them until I can get back on my feet. If there's any program you know of, or any organization that could help, I would be so grateful. Thank you for any help or advice you could assist me with. I am in the Northern Virginia area. I can be reached at

Frenchtown, NJ: Dalmatian Mix Pup Needs a Home


Hi Everyone - please cross post for me. Nobody is interested in Carly and I need your help. Carly is the sweetest most lovable little girl that I have ever had. I think I let her down by labeling her a dalmation mix. She acts nothing like a dalmation. On top of that, she is deaf. At first you won't know it because she does everything right. She just doesn't respond to her name. She is housebroken and crate trained. I am teaching her hand signs. She is playful and gets along with all dogs. She is even good with cats. She loves everybody she meets. She is not skittish at all. It appears that she was born deaf so nothing startles her even when woken up from sleeping. She loves to sit with you on the couch or take a walk. She is low energy. She is spayed and up to date on vaccinations.

Charlotte, NC: Deaf Cat and Mate Look for a Home

The owner passed away unexpectedly at the age of 37 in the past two weeks. They are now with the aunt, who is trying to get help to find them another home. Please help! Sweetie is 10 years old (deaf, declawed) and Tiger is 5 years old (hearing, declawed). They have been together two years and are pretty close. It would be best for them to be adopted together. The aunt's name is Carolyn and she can be reached at 704-435-8127 or her cell ph# at 980-522-0875 if you can adopt or rescue. If you cannot help please help us to contact someone who maybe can. Thank you.

Bulloch Co, GA: White German Shepherd Pup Mix Needs Help

To whom it may concern:

I am contacting you on behalf of the Humane Society of Statesboro and Bulloch County. We have a rescue dog (Gypsy) who is deaf and so has been hard for us to place. Also, as we have no fosters who are knowledgeable in training deaf dogs we are at a disadvantage in training her and thus placing her successfully. If you either have room for her in your rescue or advice/help for us in placing her in a forever home successfully we would appreciate the help. She is on our website at or you can see her at code 30458 at We do appreciate any help with her as she is a sweetheart and very friendly, but seems to be having problems at her foster home due to chewing. I do not know if this is related to her deafness and therefore her need for increased sensory input. I am concerned we are concentrating on her deafness, but this is probably due to our lack of knowledge of this disability. She is completely vetted and spayed.  Thank you for any help you are able to give us.
