Humane Society of Loudoun County: KONG Toys Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The Humane Society of Loudoun County (VA) received $140 worth of Kong dog toys from the Petfinder Foundation, which were immediately put into play by our awesome foster dogs!
The Humane Society of Loudoun County is dedicated to implementing the 11 components of the No-Kill Equation -- Partnerships, Volunteers, Foster Care, TNR, Pet Retention, Adoption, Community Involvement, Medical & Behavioral Rehabilitation, Spay/Neuter, Lost & Found, and Compassion -- to save 90% or more of the homeless pets in our community. Having a supply of dog-friendly toys available to our volunteers makes the transition easier for newly arriving dogs: HSLC often intakes dogs from troubled Southern Virginia shelters. The dogs arrive tired, hungry and uncertain, but once they are greeted with a kind word, dinner and their very own toys, they are able to relax and display their true personalities.

Meet Khaleesi. She’s a friendly girl with lots of energy! Very sweet and playful. She has lots of love to give and she’s still waiting for her forever home. As a pit bull terrier mix, she can look intimidating to some people. The Kong toys allow us to showcase Lesi as the playful pup she actually is. Thank you for supporting our volunteers and their lucky foster dogs through this Kong toy grant! Meet Khaleesi: https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/34749135
