Meet The Woman Who Saves Deaf Dogs, ‘They Hear With Their Hearts’

Adopting any rescue dog is a commitment, but taking in a deaf dog is a very special, and sometimes intensive, labor of love that thousands of people choose to take on each year.

One of those people is Christina Lee, who, in addition to adopting her own deaf dogs, runs a Virginia-based nonprofit called Deaf Dogs Rock dedicated to listing deaf dogs available for adoption all over the United States. Since 2011, she’s helped rescue over 1,400 of them.
