Enchantment Chihuahua Rescue Ltd.: KONG Toys Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The Kong products were used both to fundraise for our dogs and rehabilitate.
This grant helped our dogs by giving them a sophistication of toy that otherwise would have been hard to come by. It helps keep the active minds occupied, and helps with crate-training or separation anxiety to make a crate environment more enticing for longer periods of time for dogs who are unused to that environment.
How many pets did this grant help?
In different ways, this grant helped many of our dogs.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Ashley is a sweet little Chihuahua girl who was found wandering the streets and remained unclaimed despite advertising. Beautiful and loving, Ashley is also very high-energy for a small dog and prone to destruction if left on her own to be bored. Ashley is usually content to play with a foster brother and explore/destroy only when her friends are tired of playing, but the grant of Kong treats offered a new outlet for her active doggie mind. Ashley is happily motivated by treats and content to work on the puzzle of a Kong rather than shred trashbags.
