Helping Animals Live Tomorrow Rescue: KONG Toy Grant

What was the money or product used for?

We received KONG toys, which we used at our kennel facility for the dogs. They served as play and stimulation rewards.

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

The KONG toys were distributed to each dog and they were used on a daily basis. Some dogs had higher interest levels than others. We tucked treats inside, which provided stimulation while the dogs were in the kennel and not in the yard.

How many pets did this grant help?

20 of our kennel/foster dogs participated.

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

Boudi (first and second photos)! Boudi, while at the kennel, dealt with kennel- and barrier-frustration. Amazingly, he also had a high interest in the KONG toys given to him. Boudi was officially adopted this weekend after spending two weeks in a foster-to-adopt situation in order to be sure it was the perfect match.
