Tyler’s Rescue, Inc.: KONG Toys Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Enrichment for our dogs while they wait for their forever homes
The grant of Kongs helped our dogs alleviate boredom and work their minds, and helped our high-energy dogs burn off energy as they used their noses to sniff what was in the Kongs.

Ziggy (first photo) is a dog who came to us in really rough shape, medically. After he was treated and recovered from his medical issues and found to be deaf and half-blind, he spent most of his days sleeping and being inactive. We decided to give him a Kong to see if he would react to it. His little nose started twitching when he got a hold of the smell of what we stuffed the Kong with, and he actually was able to find it and enjoy it (second photo)! Now he barks for his daily Kong and goes at it with such eagerness. Ziggy had been adopted and still gets his daily Kong. Thank you, Kong Company!
