Salem Woman Inspired to Help Deaf Dogs

Posted: Updated:

Deaf Dogs Rock, a website created by Christina and Chris Lee, is helping connect deaf dog owners and people interested in adopting a disabled pet.

The couple's efforts have quickly gained national attention.

After adopting their boxer, Nitro, Christina and Chris found few resources on deaf dogs, so they took matters into their own hands and started the website.

Recently, USA Today Pet Guide and Dog Fancy magazine featured Christina and Nitro's story.

"You never know what your purpose is until something like this comes along," Christina said.

"In a 48-hour span, to think about the direction of our life changing forever is pretty incredible, I think," Chris said. "It's just something where we had never thought about it."

Since the website launched, the couple has helped find 400 dogs new homes.
