Arizona Beagle Rescue: KONG Toys Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The Kongs have been distributed to some of our recent fosters (or recently adopted dogs). Especially for our foster dogs who struggle with separation anxiety, their families report that the Kongs are a great distraction for their beagles. In the warmer weather, these will be an even bigger hit as we freeze them with different concoctions and the dogs can play with them and chew on them outside!
As mentioned above, dogs with separation anxiety benefit as well as dogs with great curiosity and energy. The Kongs keep them entertained and guessing. As the saying goes, a tired beagle is a good beagle!

Dunkin, one of our recently adopted dogs, happened to be in the room when we opened the box of Kongs. Like the typical beagle, he let his nose lead the way. We let him pick his favorite (which he did, even though there was nothing in the Kong!). Let’s just say, even a few months later, it’s still Dunkin’s favorite toy!
