The Broome County Humane Society: KONG Toys Grant Report

We were able to use the Kong products as a part of enrichment in the kennel, which included stuffing them with treats, playing fetch and allowing our dogs to chew on appropriate products.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Bear was a dog who was brought to the Humane Society with siblings who had lived a somewhat neglected life. His hair was severely matted and he suffered severe ear and skin infections. When waiting for his forever home to pick him up, Bear was able to enjoy a nice treat of peanut butter in his Kong. This also provided him with enrichment to keep him mind occupied. Bear recently found a wonderful home where he continues to be spoiled!
