Dog Kong toys

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

As part of our enrichment program, dogs receive sight, sound, and smell activities every day. Our staff and volunteers used the KONG products in several enrichment activities, including scent games and food puzzles. KONGs were stuffed with a variety of individually selected food items: canned wet food, kibble, vegetables, fruits, meat, broth, cheeses, peanut butter, and more.

We also use stuffed KONGs as part of our crate protocol, during moments of high activity (like a walking shift or public event), and when we need to examine select dogs.

Jango is one of the dogs that this grant benefited. Jango is the #1 lover of Kongs. They help with his playtime enrichment, and he also enjoys a peanut-butter snack before bedtime. Jango is still available for adoption and waiting for his forever home. You can meet him here.
