Canine Castaways Rescue, Inc.: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

The Kong toys are being used to entertain our castaways who are awaiting their forever homes.

It helped us to receive the Kong toys as a gift rather than purchasing. The money saved was then used for medical care.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

As a primarily small-dog rescue, we do not typically have larger dogs and as a result we do not have toys or supplies for larger dogs. Macey was adopted from us as puppy and then returned to us as a senior pit bull. Her dad passed away from a heart attack as he was preparing to take her for a walk. She was very upset with the EMS personnel and her mom did not feel that she could have handled such a strong dog. Macey had to be kenneled with us because we do not have large-dog foster homes. She was very stressed upon her return. Thankfully, we had large Kongs available for her thanks to this grant. After some time, Macey adjusted and has since been adopted to a loving home!
