This Week is Deaf Dog Awareness Week

In 1996, members of the Deaf Dogs E-Mail List, founded by Canadian and future board member, Lindsay Patten, rallied twice to raise the funds needed to fly deaf dogs to loving homes and away from certain death. This inspired the list members to propose that a not-for-profit organization be founded “to speak on behalf of and assist in the betterment of life for deaf dogs everywhere.” The Deaf Dog Education Action Fund (DDEAF) is the result of an idea that was long past due.
