Deaf shelter dog needs our help

Help sponsor Paige

Help sponsor Paige’s adoption fee and win great prizes from Spring Naturals and PoochPax!

*UPDATE: Paige’s and Buffy’s full adoption fees have been covered by a generous redditor. I am still collecting general donations to the Escondido Humane Society, and the next two people to donate $25 or more will receive great prizes from Spring Naturals and PoochPax.



Paige is my featured shelter dog for the month of May.

She is a 14-year-old pitbull/sharpei mix for adoption with Escondido (Calif.) Humane Society.

This senior lady is deaf and has been at the shelter since August.

I’m told she has a very fun attitude and just loves to cuddle. Look at that smile!

Her total adoption fee is now $0 thanks to a generous donor.

Sponsoring a dog’s adoption fee helps draw more attention to that particular dog. It also allows an approved adopter to take the dog home for little or no cost. In this case, I’m even hoping a blog reader in the area might adopt Paige!

How to donate to Paige’s adoption fee

The money to cover Pagie’s adoption fee has been raised, as well as the money to cover a second senior dog named Buffy. You can still donate any amount to the Escondido Humane Society using the PayPal button below, and 100 percent of the money will go to the shelter.

The next two people to donate $25 or more will receive some prizes. More info on the prizes below.

Raised so far: $110




Prizes from Spring Naturals & PoochPax!

The next two people to donate $25 or more will receive a bag of treats from Spring Naturals and a coupon code to order a free box of goodies from PoochPax. (Must live in the United States to receive these prizes).

Spring Naturals treats are made with whole grains, real meat and fruits, according to its web site. Grain-free treats are also available. PoochPax is a monthly subscription box for dogs, and each box includes at least four toys and treats, according to the company.

So, let’s spread the word about Paige! Nine months is a heck of a long time for any dog to spend in a shelter.

Do you know anyone who has adopted a senior dog?

    What a great way to help a senior deaf dog. I am not able to help at the moment but I will share the post on twitter. I hope this wonderful girl finds a nice forever home soon :)

    Shared. It is hard enough being homeless, but then that breed and being deaf. So sad.

  3. I will cover her fees if it means she will not be PTS and will go to a good rescue.

    • Also what are the fees for Buffy? If they are similar, I will cover her as well.

      Thank you. She is not in danger of being killed, but I’m hoping if her fee is sponsored she will get adopted much faster (by an approved adopter). Time for the old girl to get a home!

    I volunteer at EHS and have walked Paige several times. She is the sweetest dog, loves to get attention and enjoys being out on her walks. She is always so happy to greet her human friends and get out of the kennel. She’ll be a great addition to a family!

      Thank you for the information. Gosh, she is so adorable. I hope she finds her forever home very soon. I have such a soft spot for the seniors!
