Kong toys used for dog enrichment. We would stuff the toys with treats, food, and peanut butter and then freeze them. This gave the dogs an extra challenge to keep them entertained during their down time.
This grant helped provide much-needed mental stimulation for the dogs in our care. Keeping their minds engaged helped keep them calm in their rooms while potential adopters viewed them
We had seven dogs at the time the Kongs were delivered.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, we adopted out all but one of our dogs. This dog received one to two Kongs stuffed with various foods and treats every day to help stave off the boredom from being in a kennel most of the day. He has since stopped jumping up on the staff and reduced the amount of playful nipping he does.
