Rescue Ridge: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

It was Kongs and we use them for the animals we have in kennels. They can take them with them when they go home.

Kongs are a lot harder to chew through. We fill them with peanut butter or unsweetened apple sauce and the dogs have a grand old time sucking it out of the Kong. It gives our fur friends something to do when we leave them and it gives the volunteers peace of mind that when we get back they won't be chewed to pieces, so the volunteers don't have to worry about whether the animal has swallowed anything.

How many pets did this grant help?

Probably eight medium-size guys and nine smaller guys.

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

Miss Wiggles was found as a stray. When her local shelter was going to put her down because Wiggles didn’t like the small cages, we took her. Our kennels are a little larger, but still Wiggles had anxiety. The Kong helps to keep her anxiety at bay. It allows her to focus on fun and food at one time. And Miss Wiggles loves both. Meet Miss Wiggles:

All of our happy dogs would like to say thank you for this little bit of happiness.
