Allegany County Animal Shelter: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

We use Kong toys as part of our shelter enrichment program for our dogs. It is a wonderful tool to reduce stress and pass the time for the dogs in our care. It is also a useful tool to redirect destructive dogs to the Kong vs. their bed, blanket, etc.

How many pets did this grant help?

We average 550 dogs per year.

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

Chance is a dog in our care who is high-strung and greatly benefits from Kong toys. He will chew his bed, the kennel wall, etc., if not given a Kong to focus his attention on. Kong toys are part of our enrichment protocol for Chance.

You can meet Chance here.
