Adopt-A-Dog Animal Rescue, Inc.: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

We received 11 Kong toys for the dogs.

The toys give the dogs something to play with in the exercise pen and also keep their minds busy in the kennel when treats are added.

How many pets did this grant help?

A minimum of 11. These toys will help dogs currently in the kennel and dogs coming in the future.

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

Mudd (first two photos) is a Lab/pointer cross. He is only a year old and loves to throw the Kong bone. He doesn’t really like treats, but he loves treats in the Kong toy. This toy helps him keep calmer in the kennel and definitely lets him expend energy in the exercise pen. Cinch (last two photos) is a 4-year-old border collie/blue heeler cross and is very energetic. He definitely needs a job or something to keep his mind busy. Cinch enjoys working the Kong toy to get his treats.
