Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

This grant directly benefited the “Dumpster Five” puppies. Five little 10-week-old puppies were left in a school dumpster to die. They were rescued and placed in a loving foster home where they received one-on-one attention, playing with KONG toys, learning basic commands with peanut butter-filled KONGs as a reward, and using KONG toys as a comfort at night.
