Helping Strays of Monroe County, IL: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

The enrichment these KONGs have provided has done wonders to the dogs' kennel stress. The fosters who are using the KONGs are also finding the dogs in their care have become more settled in their environment.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Ringa was somewhat destructive when she arrived at her foster’s home.

Within a week of getting two different KONGs to play with, she settled down with them and her Nylabone. She guarded them like they were her babies, but still wanted her foster to throw them so she could chase and retrieve them.

The KONGs really made a difference in her life.
