Paw Printz Pitbull Rescue: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

I tossed them on the floor for the 20 dogs to play with.

Cleo is 14 years old and has had double hip surgery, so she lies around and chews a lot.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Cleopatra is 14 years old and has had double hip surgery, so she lies around and chews a lot. From her Petfinder profile: “Cleo is a senior at 14 years old. She is all personality. She likes to talk, and she will sing with you. She adores people and is friendly to all dogs, but no cats. If you are sitting down, she will come over and put her head on your lap. If that doesn’t get your attention, she will poke you with her nose. She has that wonderful big bully smile. You can’t help but smile when you look at her. She loves to chase — a laser pointer is her favorite, but she will chase after a ball as well, only she has no idea what to do when she gets to it, so she turns around (without the ball, of course) and runs back to her person with a big smile on her face and her tail wagging a mile a minute. If we could figure out how to hook something up to that tail, we could generate enough energy to run a small town! It never stops wagging — even in her sleep! She is a happy, happy dog and makes all those around her happy as well.

“Cleopatra is crate-trained, housetrained, microchipped, current of her shots and knows basic obedience. She can also catch treats tossed at her. She loves her food and would happily search the kitchen floor for dropped goodies if you let her.”
