Animal Rescue New Orleans: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

These Kongs are wonderful aids to giving shelter dogs a much needed distraction. Filled with peanut butter, they provide for hours of chewing fun, plus a delicious treat!

ARNO is a no-kill shelter which strives not only to bring our rescues to full health but also to fulfill their needs at the shelter both physically and emotionally, by giving them a much-needed distraction in addition to walks and playtime.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Abel is a dog rescued who no doubt comes from a background of abuse. He gets very nervous when people are screaming or waiving their arms, for obvious reasons. He enjoys his Kong and peanut butter. He sometimes gets a little depressed or in a funk, and his Kong is a great distraction to pull him out of it. Special-needs dogs like Abel are so important to ARNO’s mission to help those who would have no chance if not for ARNO. Thanks for making a difference for Abel.
