Watertown Humane Society: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

The Watertown Humane Society was awarded the Kong Toy Grant. Our shelter received a grant valued at $208.95. We used these products to provide enrichment and training to our dogs awaiting their forever homes. Our largest use for them is to freeze peanut butter inside them. Every night each dog receives one to work on for the night. It keeps their minds busy and provides comfort and entertainment for our furry friends.

This grant allowed us to "free up" funds in our general account, which then where used for other needs of the animals.

How many pets did this grant help?

20+ and it will continue to help more as the years go on.

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

The photo provided is of our friend Parker. Parker was very nervous being here and not in his home. Along with all of these big dogs barking and all the strangers, Parker was pretty stressed. We had Parker come hang out with us in our office and “work” on his frozen peanut butter kong. As you can see he was very comfortable and relaxed. Parker has since found his forever home.
