How many pets did this grant help?


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

Cuba (first photo) was very nervous in his crate and the Kong toy helped calm him down enough to show his true personality. He was adopted two weeks ago. From his Petfinder profile: “Meet Cuba! Cuba is a 10- to 11-month-old boxer mix. This guy is a hunk! He currently weighs 39 lbs. and is close to fully grown — we don’t expect him to be more than 45-50 lbs. We have rescued a lot of boxer mixes that look like him recently and we believe some of them may be related. Cuba is a sweet boy who is a little shy at first but warms up quickly. He is getting a ton of socialization at his current foster home! He gets along great with dogs big and small. We also think he would be fine with children. He is house- and crate-trained. He walks great on leash and is very submissive.”
