How many pets did this grant help?

Immeasurable. The Kong toys will be used for years!

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

Kittens Chex Mix (first and second photos) and Turducken (first photo) spent a month in medical isolation with ringworm and were a little stir-crazy! The Kongs kept them happy and busy and helped them burn energy. Once they were medically cleared, they moved to a room and were quickly adopted!

Aliya the dog (third photo) came in very emaciated and we needed to slow-feed her. She also had giardia and coccidia, which kept her isolated from public interaction for some time. The Kong toys kept her busy and helped her to eat slowly to avoid issues with her sensitive stomach. Aliya has also been adopted!
