Salem Non-Profit Helps Dogs With Special Needs

Posted: Updated:

Deaf Dogs Rock, a Salem non-profit, is working to help dogs with special needs.

Christina Lee and her husband Chris started the non-profit in 2011 after adopting their dog Nitro, who is deaf.

"He inspired us," Christina said. "He gave us purpose."

The group's website offers resources for dogs with special needs and posts information on deaf dogs waiting to be adopted.

"We have received such a tremendous response," Christina said.

They have added a dog park on their property for dogs with special needs. They also hope to bring dogs from Angels of Assisi to the park to give them a break on the weekend.

You can find more information about the non-profit on their website, www.deafdogsrock.com.
