Max's Animal Rescue and Humane Society: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

To stimulate dog minds to be active and play

We are a very rural shelter with no foot traffic, so anything that can bring some activity to these animals is very much appreciated!

How many pets did this grant help?

Several we received 5 Kong's different sizes so about 40-50 different dogs played with them and are still playing with them.

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

Andy, as of today, is still up for adoption. Andy is a senior, 8-10 years old, who was dumped because he was old. He came here very sad, depressed and confused, constantly looking for someone or something. He has learned to love treats, toys (KONGs are his favorite), and leash walks. Thank you for putting a light back in his eyes by offering this grant. As you can see by his photo, he’s actually smiling. I believe his KONG brought that to him. Meet Andy:
