Greenawalds Service: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

We received a box of Kong toys that were given to our rescue dogs for enrichment during kennel time.

These Kongs helped our rescued dogs enjoy their kennel time more and they stood up to our extreme chewers who normally destroy toys in minutes. The dogs love them and we bought the stuffers for them, helping to occupy their minds further with trying to clean them out.

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

Beaux is an extreme chewer and goes through toys in mere minutes. He especially has done GREAT with the X2 and in fact it is still intact. We just add treats or the canned “squeeze cheese” in various flavors and he loves it. He has not yet been adopted; Beaux is one half of a bonded pair and they have been looking for a forever home for over a year, which makes the need for kennel enrichment all the more of a priority for these two. The remaining 10 Kongs that were given to other rescues went with them as they were all adopted. They liked them so much that I didn’t want to keep the Kongs from them.
