Crossed Paws Animal Haven: KONG Toys Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We received KONG toys for our puppies in our rescue to play with and stimulate their minds.
Receiving the KONG toys has allowed us to replace the old toys we had and provide new toys that we can let our current and future rescue dogs play with. The toys give our dogs the opportunity to keep busy if they are in a crate or play with one another when they are out in the yard for exercise and not destroy any children's toys.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
We rescued Scruffy Duffy (pictured) who had been attacked by another dog and needed surgery to stitch up his wounds. He requires isolation from the other fosters as he recovers from his traumatic experience, and the KONG toys allow him stimulation while he is crated and when he is outside, reducing the chance he’ll roughhouse with the other fosters and open his wounds and cause re-injury.
