Watonwan County Humane Society: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

We received Kongs and they were used for the dogs. We filled them with 1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter and gave one to each dog.

Shelter enrichment is essential for a dogs' mental health while residing in a shelter. Kongs play an important roll in providing mental and physical stimulation.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Pepper is a long-term resident at our shelter. Unfortunately she has been with us for months so it is especially important for her to have mental and physical enrichment. The Kongs have done a lot to occupy her time and provide her with a safe way to satisfy her instincts, thereby making her stay more tolerable. We hope to find a home for her soon. Meet Pepper:
