Allegany County Animal Shelter Management Foundation: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

We received a grant of Kong toys for our shelter dogs. We put peanut butter in them and freeze them. They make great treats and help our dogs pass the time in the kennels.

This grant enhanced our kennel-enrichment program.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Little Red is a young, active dog. The Kong toys provide him much-needed mental stimulation when he is in his kennel. They allow him to focus on getting the peanut butter out of the Kong, which occupies him vs. him just lying in the kennel or barking, etc., because he is bored.
