Best Friends Forever Rescue: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

The delightful Kong toys were used to help our fosters feel more at home in their foster homes, and they were able to take the toys with them after adoption to help them acclimate to their new home. The toys kept the rescue dogs entertained in healthy ways during this adjustment period.

Our organization works through a network of volunteers and foster homes. We do not have extra funds to purchase many new toys for our rescues, so these Kong toys helped the pets in our care by providing them healthy entertainment.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

While this grant helped more than 20 dogs in our care, we chose to highlight Jeannie, who was recently adopted! Jeannie is a 2-year-old terrier mix who was rescued from an outdoor hoarder. In that situation, she was kept outdoors in all types of weather and in a kennel with no roof or covering. She was able to more quickly adapt in her foster home due to her Kong toy. Now, she is loving her new life in her forever home. She is still in love with her Kong!
