Sanilac County Humane Society: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

The Kong toys are used to help keep our dogs and puppies occupied during the cold days when they are kept inside for long periods of time.

Having the Kong toys helps burn energy and keeps the dogs from barking out of boredom. This helps them get adopted faster.

How many pets did this grant help?

15 dogs

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

We have a short-hair pointer named Carmen who is 6 years old and her owner died. Carmen would cry all day in her kennel and nothing would calm her except someone sitting in the kennel with her. We brought out the Kong and filled it with yummy treats for her to lick and chew. The crying stopped and she was a lot calmer. She has not been adopted but is working it. You can meet her here.
