Mending Spirits Animal Rescue: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

The products were used for foster dogs in rescue.

It helped us greatly for dogs who need bigger, stronger toys. Rescue is completely dependent on donations and adoption fees, and having a donation of Kongs has been amazing for us.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

We had a teething litter of cocker spaniel/shepherd-mix puppies including Roman (first photo) and Neela (second photo) who benefited greatly from the smaller Kongs. They loved to play and chew on them, plus the Kongs were easy to clean. Roman is an outgoing, playful pup who has shown himself to be very intelligent and loyal. Neela is more calm and loves to be close and cozy to her human friends. She is easygoing, with a docile temperament. Both pups are being fostered in a loving home with daily hands-on exposure involving other animals and children of all ages, promoting early opportunities for expanded, well-balanced socialization.
