Chako Pit Bull Rescue: KONG Toys Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

KONG toys for foster dogs.

Pit Bulls need durable, high-quality chew toys to help keep them busy in their crates at adoption events, when their foster parents are at work, etc.

How many pets did this grant help?

We received a medium box full of KONGs, so lots!

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

Hannah is a little pup we pulled from our local shelter. She came in with puncture wounds. After surgery, she had to be isolated in the shelter and wear a cone. We pulled her into our rescue/foster program, and of course, she had to take it easy for a while, but one of the bright, orange KONG toys you provided helped keep her company. We’d fill it with kibble and let her work it and, as she was feeling better, she enjoyed batting it around and playing with it. We think she liked the color, too! (Sorry for the slightly blurry photos! Pit Bull puppies on the move are notoriously difficult to photograph, plus we think the camera just really liked focusing on the bright orange KONG!)
