Spokane Humane Society: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

The Kong products were used for new dogs arriving at our shelter.

It helped the newly arrived dogs focus on something inside of their kennel instead of barking at all of the activity around them. This provided a calmer environment for all the dogs in our care.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Good Time Charlie (first photo), now named Sir Charles, traveled to Spokane from Texas. In that shelter, he had run out of time, even though he was described as a dog who loves attention from everyone and was good with kids and other dogs. He walked well on a leash and kenneled okay, too!

After two weeks, he was adopted by a family who said he was “meant to be with” the family and he had really bonded with their youngest daughter.
