Dogs for the Deaf Seeks Donations

SAMS VALLEY, Ore. — A non-profit organization is asking for the public’s assistance to help a dog that could benefit people in need.

Dogs for the Deaf, which rescues and trains animals to help people with disabilities, is requesting $658 to pay for a surgery for a newly rescued dog named Jazzie. The animal was rescued from a shelter in Utah, and it was discovered she suffered from Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease, which causes pain in the dog’s hips and hind legs.

The organization says it relies on financial help from the community to help its animals and continue to operate. More information can be found online at DogsfortheDeaf.org.
