King George Animal Rescue League: KONG Toy Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

The Kong toys are used by KGARL foster dogs for play and enrichment. We often put dog cookies in a Kong to keep foster dogs busy in their crates.

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

Kong toys are used by our foster dogs every day to keep them entertained and quiet when they need to be crated. We often stuff the toys with treats and other yummy items so they have to work a bit to get to the food.

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

Emma came to us as a severely underweight puppy. She was the runt of her litter and we weren’t sure if she would make it or not. Through love, TLC, a good diet and vet care, Emma has grown into a beautiful little girl and she is ready to be adopted. While Emma waits for her forever home, she enjoys playing with the Kongs in her foster home. Meet Emma here.

The Kongs we received could potentially enrich hundreds of dogs’ lives because they last so long! We can wash and reuse them for many, many dogs.

Kongs are a great way to enrich a dog’s stay in the kennels. Because dogs tend to get bored in the shelter, we stuff Kongs with wet dog food and put them in the freezer, and they can be a great attention-holder for hours! They truly make the dogs very happy! Here are photos of (from top) Preston, Duke and Taz enjoying Kongs in their kennels. Preston has been adopted.
