Path of Hope Rescue: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

KONG toys were awarded to Path of Hope Rescue in early December. These toys were distributed to the fosters who house the dogs to provide sturdy toys for the dogs to play with.

It provided us toys that we can include in our foster kits. These kits come with everything a foster could need to care for our pups. Now they include nice toys for the dogs to enjoy.

How many pets did this grant help?

20+ with many more to come. As long as the toys remain in good condition, the foster will continue to let our pups play with them as they move from their fosters to their fur-ever homes.

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

Angel (first photo) and Sampson were two pups staying with one of our fosters who had a marvelous time playing with the toys. Favorites of theirs were the orange KONG toy and the KONG gorilla. The orange KONG was loved so much they managed to chew the top off in short order. The high-visibility orange made fetch in the grass much easier. The KONG gorilla was also a big hit. They loved the plush texture and found it a great toy to play tug-of-war with. The gorilla lost a foot in the process, but the remainder is still being played with.
