Wise Animal Rescue: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

Kong products were given to our foster families to give to our rescues dogs while they wait for their forever homes.

The Kong toys helped our rescue dogs adjust to their new lives in foster homes. They were filled with treats and peanut butter and the dogs enjoyed them for hours. The Kongs kept them occupied and provided the simulation they needed in their time of need. Some of them were frozen to provide an extended time of play.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Sandy (first photo) is a 3-month-old Lab mix who was rescued from a backyard breeder with six of her siblings. The breeder had sold three of their littermates, and kept Sandy and her remaining siblings outside all day. After they were rescued, Sandy was the last to be adopted and needed some comfort while she waited for the perfect home. The stuffed Kong provided her comfort while she waited. She has been adopted.

Boey (second photo) was our southern pup who was found wondering along the side of a highway. He was young and needed a lot of attention while he adjusted. The Kong provided him with simulation while he waited for his forever family.

Coco (third photo) was surrendered by her owner after four years along, with her sibling, Pebbles, an 8-year-old Morkie. The Kong provided Coco with some simulation while she waited for her forever home without her sister, who was adopted by another family.

Sonny (fourth photo) is our prize pup who was found wondering the streets of Philly with numerous injuries, including a head contusion. He loves his Kong so much that he spends hours playing with it trying to get the frozen treats filled with peanut butter out of it. He has been adopted.
