blinddeaf03Max is blind. Snow is deaf. Chumani is blind and deaf. All three dogs are white (a typical trait of deaf or blind dogs). And all three were pulled from Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C) shelters within the past year by the amazing Harriet Zucker of Red Hook Dog Rescue in Brooklyn, New York. A ten-year rescue veteran, Harriet has carved out her own niche in the NYC rescue community by rescuing deaf and blind dogs. Harriet says that many people who adopt a deaf or blind dog can’t imagine having any other kind of dog. You can read more about her incredible rescue (and the wonderful blind and deaf dogs she has for adoption!) in this great interview article recently posted in Out of the Cage!, the e-newsletter of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals.
