Matilda's Garden: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

We are a primarily foster-based rescue, and each foster kitten or cat needs their own toys to play with. Because toys must often be replaced due to wear and tear and cats taking toys with them after adoption, we are in constant need of new toys.

This grant helped supply toys to our foster homes to provide the necessary enrichment every cat needs to live a happy, healthy life. We also have cats in a PetSmart adoption center who are constantly in need of new toys, and who received toys from this grant. It is important that these cats also have enrichment, particularly toys that they can play with on their own. When people see happy cats playing with toys in the store, they are more likely to get adopted! Since that is our goal for every cat in the adoption center, toys are a high priority.
