Pike Pet Pals: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

Kongs were used to give out to adopted dogs. Instructions were given on how to effectively use the product to reduce stress in a new environment.

Adopters were very happy to get the Kongs. Many of them would see the Kongs in our vetting room and ask for them before we offered them.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

We had a bully named Sully who was adopted out and returned due to stress in the environment. We gave the Kong to his next adopter. They filled it with treats and gave it to him when they left the house. They said he was very focused on it. They went and got a bigger one so it would last longer. Within a few days the adoption was finalized. Now he no longer has to worry where he will wake up. He is finally home!
