Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

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

How many pets did this grant help?

We had seven dogs at the time the Kongs were delivered.

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

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.
