Golden Belt Humane Society: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

Enrichment for our shelter dogs. Kong toys are a great tool in helping dogs keep busy or entertained during their stay at the shelter.

The dogs love the treats we put inside and they work to get them out.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Meeka, 9-month-old pointer mix, loved playing with the treat-filled Kong toys. She was displaying high anxiety and only liked tennis balls until we gave her Kong toys. After we gave them to her, she was able to keep busy and not show so much anxiety from being in the shelter. Miss Meeka has since been adopted and has learned to love other toys, but she still loves her Kong!
