Mutt Mesh Animal Rescue: KONG Toys Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The Kongs were used to enrich the lives of the dogs under our care! Kongs were filled with peanut butter and dog food and frozen for treats. Some of these dogs have never had a treat or a toy before.
It gave them the opportunity to play with toys and enjoy life. Every night, the dogs go into crates to sleep. Now they all have a toy filled with treats to enjoy. We can't give out the toys out in the open because some of our babies don't know how to share because they've never had anything.

Winston is no longer available for adoption because he is now living in a foster-to-adopt home. Once he is well, this family will adopt him. Winston was rescued from Bay City Animal Impound in Bay City, TX. Once he arrived, he began having horrible seizures. He couldn’t live in a crate or around other dogs because of his terrible seizure disorder. He would literally have seizures for 1.5 hours. Now that he’s under a veterinarian’s care and taking his meds, his seizures have decreased to five minutes long. He was living in my bathroom all alone for three months, only out for potty breaks and yard time when supervised. He was given a few Kong toys, which he played with constantly. We would put his wet dog food inside them and freeze them for hours of busy time and enjoyment. He went to sleep with his big Kong Goodie Bone every night. He had several Kong toys, but the Goodie Bone was his favorite!
