New Castle Henry County Animal Shelter: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

Kongs for kennel enhancement.

Our dogs are loving their new Kongs. We put peanut butter in them and on them and our dogs absolutely love them. The Kongs help with boredom during the evening when nobody is around to walk them.

How many pets did this grant help?

It would be hard to determine, as the dogs come and go in our shelter often. It will certainly be in the hundreds each year.

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

Mahoney (first photo) is a pit bull-shepherd mix who was with us for five months. The daily KONG helped him avoid kennel boredom for his long stay with us. He looked forward to his KONG like clockwork every day. It was a joy to see him have so much fun in his kennel tossing his toy around. Mohoney has been adopted. Thank you so much for adding to our kennel enhancement program.
