Animal Rescue New Orleans: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

The Kongs were used to give enrichment to dogs at the shelter.

This grant gave much-needed distraction and enrichment to dogs at the shelter waiting to get adopted. We fill them with peanut butter. It helps dogs who are stressed out or nervous concentrate on their Kongs. It also helps puppies who are still teething.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Dip is a puppy who was rescued with seven siblings from a municipal shelter. He immediately grabbed his Kong and started chewing it and licking the filling. As he waits to get adopted, it helps give him enrichment and much-needed distraction. Because he’s a puppy, it also creates good habits of chewing his Kong while he is still breaking new teeth. It makes him even more adoptable! Meet him here.
