Lucky Dog Animal Rescue: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

The Kongs are used to provide positive outlets for animals in foster care, transport, and shelter care prior to rescue and rehoming. The are an invaluable source for our animals. Thank you!

They made an immense difference in giving scared, worried dogs in a new environment something to play with, something to chew -- something to keep them busy and calm during adoption events, furthering their adoption potential.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

This wonderful grant helped dogs like Rowland, a golden retriever, and Jabba the Mutt, a brindle mixed breed dog (first photo). Rowland came to us as one of a litter of seven puppies. He was afraid of his own shadow, but through foster care and playing with the Kongs, he gained confidence and found his forever home (second photo)! Jabba the Mutt came to us a LARGE puppy with boundless energy. Playing with the Kong gave him a positive outlet for his energy and allowed him to quickly find his forever family. Thank you!
