Spring Branch Rescue: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

The KONGS were used to help during decompression of our adoptable pets after arrival and during crate training.

How many pets did this grant help?

30 or more

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

Pirata, Teresita, Blondie, Donatella, Gianni Versace, Carolina Herrera, and Massimo were nervous after arrival. Their Kong Toys kept them entertained and relaxed during the decompression period. This is difficult for some due to anxiety.

Pirata, Blondie, and Teresita now have been adopted. All three are more relaxed during crate time.

It’s hard for most animal rescues to buy toys when medical expenses come first. We thank the Petfinder Foundation’s 2021 KONG Toy Grant for the $279.80 in Kong toys awarded to our rescue!
