Olympic Peninsula Humane Society: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

We received a donation of KONG toys which were used for our dog residents to help keep them stimulated while in their kennels.

We love to have KONGs at the shelter because they are durable, can be filled with food and provide hours of entertainment for our dogs.

How many pets did this grant help?

The KONGs have benefitted approximately 25 dogs.

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

Eve is a pitbull mix who has been at the shelter for a long time and we are always looking for ways to keep her stimulated and happy. Filling a KONG with kibble keeps her occupied for hours in her kennel. She loves to play fetch and the KONGs are great because they are durable so she is able to play with the same toy for quite awhile.

Tonka is another dog who has benefitted greatly from the KONGs. He is a young German Shepherd and destroys most toys pretty quickly. The KONGs are far more durable and he is able to chew on them and keep himself occupied.
