Welcome to Deaf
Dane Rescue Inc.
We regret to inform
We have had to cancel this year's
Deaf Dog Picnic and DDRI Open House
June 9th & 10th, 2012
DDRI Has a New
Graduate becomes Certified Service
Local Businesses step up to
vet Dr. Cary Heyward of Amazon
Park Animal Clinic
helping us out for quite a while now
with discount services, and giving us as
many freebies and deals as possible.
Without Dr Heyward's help, DDRI would
likely have had to close its doors long
ago. Top quality vet care, and pricing
to help rescue. What more can anyone ask
All the pups say thanks Dr. Cary!
We have a new feature, the DDRI Store. Be
sure to check it out. You'll find all
sorts of exciting stuff, including books and
videos on dogs, dog training, and deaf dogs.
The proceeds from sales at the DDRI Store go
towards funding DDRI itself. To make the store
as useful as possible, we have affiliated with
Dogwise, a fantastic place for the dog lover.
Now any purchase you make though our portal
will help fund DDRI! We get a commission on
any Dogwise sales when a person shops Dogwise
by entering through our portal. To find out
more about this be sure to check out our store.
With the recent influx of dogs, and some
recent vet expenses, our budget is stretched
past its limits. Our only sources of income are
adoption fees, and sales from our new DDRI
Store. If you can, please help us out by doing
your shopping via our online store. We get a
percentage of everything sold through our store
and with affiliates like iGive, Petsmart,
Dogwise, Flowers for Rescue, ShelterCare,
and others, you can find almost anything you
need while ensuring that a portion of your
purchase goes to help our needy dogs.
Our Mission statement:
serve to the best of our abilities the needs of deaf
Danes whenever and wherever we can.
train and socialize those deaf Danes entrusted to
our care so that they are ready to be welcomed into
a new home as a valued member of the family
do our utmost to find a placement in an appropriate
and loving home for all deaf Danes entrusted to our
care, and to support that placement with
post-adoption training and follow up contacts.
ensure that all deaf Danes are treated with dignity
and are given every chance to have a quality life,
and that no Dane is ever killed simply because they
personally care for those dogs we are not able to
place in a loving home for any reason.
raise the general publics awareness about the
realities and facts of deaf Dane ownership.
fight the stereotypes of deaf Danes as unstable,
unhealthy, stupid animals that can't be trusted and
do not deserve to live.
work in cooperation with vets, Great Dane Clubs,
breeders, and others, to increase breeder awareness
of the genetic issues that lead to deafness in Great
Danes and to help avoid breedings that will result
in deaf Dane puppies.
promote spaying and neutering of all pets, and
responsible breeding practices to reduce the number
of dogs that cannot find their "forever" homes and
must live out their limited days in shelters or on
the streets as part of the pet overpopulation
offer whatever aid and assistance we can to any
owner of a deaf Dane, regardless of whether that dog
was a DDRI placement or not.
ensure that any deaf Dane that must be euthanized is
treated with dignity and as a respected and valued
family member, and that any dog under our care will
pass on in the arms of a human friend.
promote awareness of what a special gift from our
creator dogs are, what a responsibility mankind has
to do right by these gifts, and how much more
important it is that we do so for deaf dogs.
|We use Patented Kuranda Dog
Beds because they are durable, chew proof, easy to
clean, and our dogs love them. If you would like

The greatness of a nation and its
moral progress can be judged by the way its
animals are treated.
