Randolph Regional Animal Shelter: KONG Toy Grant

What was the money or product used for?

We received the XL Extreme Kongs.

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

We stuff/freeze the Kongs to give to our dogs after the shelter closes for the day. This grant was VERY helpful, as the XL Extreme Kongs are the most expensive. We wash/sterilize them daily after use and they last a long time. Giving the dogs the filled Kongs settles them down and keeps them busy for a few hours when they are alone.

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

Boss is a nervous dog when he is not with people. He is also a tough chewer and can only have the XL Extreme Kong. Boss is still up for adoption. From his Petfinder profile: “Boss is an adorable mix with a gorgeous chocolate coat. He is a young boy, probably under a year old. He is currently working with a trainer here at the shelter on his basic commands. He is sweet, gentle, and walks well on a leash. Boss is neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations.” You can meet Boss here.
