Appalachian Peace Paws Rescue: KONG Toys Grant Report

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

Our foster dogs love their Kong toys! The best part of their day is getting their enrichment toys that are stuffed with a snack and frozen for longevity. We have really noticed a decrease in destructive behaviors since we added these toys into their routine.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

One of our fosters, Bear, was returned from his adopter after a year for reasons outside of his control. When he returned, he became quite depressed and shut down.

He started looking forward to his daily Kong toy and now will bring it to his foster mom’s lap and drop it for her. He is not adopted yet, but we are hoping he soon will be.

You can meet Bear here.
