Tenth Life Cat Rescue: KONG Toys Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The Kong toys that we received were used for cat enrichment in our free-roaming adoption lounge, isolation kennels, and foster homes.
This Kong grant helped our organization by giving us a fun, new toy option for the cats in our care. They especially helped us provide enrichment for cats required to be in isolation. The cats have really enjoyed them!

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
After Madame President was rescued from a euthanasia list at a local animal-control facility, she quickly charmed her caretakers at Tenth Life! Due to her unknown health status at the time she arrived, isolation was required until she could be tested and cleared of all communicable diseases, parasites, etc. We were told that she was aggressive and could not be picked up. While in isolation, Madame President was given the Kong stuffed toy that we received through this grant. She loved playing with it and it allowed us to offer a her a unique enrichment experience.
We quickly learned that she is as sweet as she can be! She loves to play and adores human companionship. She is currently available for adoption. We will send her favorite Kong stuffed toy home with her!
