How many pets did this grant help?

The Kongs we received could potentially enrich hundreds of dogs’ lives because they last so long! We can wash and reuse them for many, many dogs.

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

Kongs are a great way to enrich a dog’s stay in the kennels. Because dogs tend to get bored in the shelter, we stuff Kongs with wet dog food and put them in the freezer, and they can be a great attention-holder for hours! They truly make the dogs very happy! Here are photos of (from top) Preston, Duke and Taz enjoying Kongs in their kennels. Preston has been adopted.
