Animal Shelter Volunteers of Texas: KONG Toy Grant

We received Kong toys, which were used for dogs awaiting adoption in our foster program.

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

The Kong toys helped foster parents entertain their foster dogs. The toys were provided for fetch, chewing and stuffed with treats. They also made cute props in adoption photos to help showcase the dogs’ playful personalities.

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

These Kongs have helped my foster pups, Jed, Jethro and Elly May, tremendously. They love them! The Kong toys helped me keep them busy in the playpen at nap time and bedtimes. They also keep them mentally stimulated, and the dogs look up at the counter waiting for me to make their stuffed Kongs several times a day. I’m grateful for the donation to my fosters.

Jed has been adopted.
