Solano County S.P.C.A.: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

We received Kong toys that we used to keep our dogs busy in their kennels while waiting for adoptive families.

The pets in our care are helped by Kong toys in a couple different ways. The first way is that they are given a durable toy that is safe for them to chew on and play with. It keeps them busy and quiet in their kennels. The second way that it helps them is that the new families already have a toy that is familiar to their new pet. This will help keep the dog occupied during the transition of getting to know their new forever family.

How many pets did this grant help?

15 - 20

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

McDonald is a 1-year-old border collie who had developed kennel stress. He would chase bowls in circles repeatedly and exhibit other signs. We gave him a Kong toy we received with the Kong grant. He picked it up and now he won’t put it down. It gave him something more positive to focus his energy on.
