The Dog House K9 Rescue: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

We board and train all our rescue dogs before they are adopted, and we utilize Kongs during basic training. We also use them for crate training and anxiety management.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Kiki (first and second photos) came to us with some crate anxiety and “stranger danger.” We used stuffed, frozen Kongs in her crate to reduce her anxiety, with great success. She would train in the yard with them as well, which helped control her when we introduced her to strangers.

When she was adopted, she went home with her Kong, and her owner still uses it in the crate.
