Pawswap of Greater Lafayette: KONG Toy Grant

What was the money or product used for?

We used the Kong products for kennel enrichment to keep the dogs entertained and to stimulate their senses, since they are cooped up a majority of the day in kennels.

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

The products helped give the dogs something to do and something to look forward to to break up the long days when they are unable to be in a home.

How many pets did this grant help?

30+. The Kongs are re-usable and washable. They will help many more to come.

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

We have sent home Kongs with some dogs who have a bit of separation anxiety and struggle being crated when left alone. This applies to Lady, who has never been an only dog. Now she is in a foster home and thriving. The Kong has helped give her something to do when she’s alone.
