ACT V Rescue & Rehabilitation: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

The Kongs were given to our foster homes that currently have foster dogs.

The foster dogs in our care were helped by this grant by having additional enrichment toys in their foster homes. Kongs provide an enriching way to eat meals. Kongs are used for crate training as well. Our dogs are benefiting mentally and physically from enrichment.

How many pets did this grant help?

Eight dogs so far, but we will be able to provide more Kongs this year!

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

Marlo is a dog in our rescue who struggles with anxiety. Now that his foster mom has multiple Kongs, she is able to prepare them ahead of time and freeze them. Marlo is then able to have Kongs throughout the day. This activity helps decrease his anxiety. He loves getting stuffed Kongs! Marlo has not been adopted yet. His Petfinder page is here.
