Volunteers For Animals: KONG Toys Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We received 120 bags of KONG Cat Morsels cat treats.
We have many volunteers that come in each day to pet and socialize cats. Having healthy treats is a great way to make positive connections with the cats. Our volunteers really enjoy having the treats to use with the cats. It helps to bring scared cats out of their shells and gives outgoing kitties a chance to play and be rewarded. Thank you for providing this wonderful grant.
How many pets did this grant help?
So far approximately 60 cats and counting.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Snowy is an especially shy kitty. He came to us a stray and is really having a hard time adjusting to shelter life. We have been using the KONG treats with him to entice him out of his shell. We try to have a variety of volunteers mingle with him but always with treats. It is slowly making a difference with Snowy. And we will keep working with him. Thank you again for your generosity for shelter animals!
