Operation Kindness: KONG Toy Grant
What was the money or product used for?

The in-kind donation of 25 Kong toys were given to our dogs in the shelter and they kept them when they got adopted.

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

Kong toys provide great stimulation for our dogs temporarily residing in the shelter. Although they get taken for walks several times a day, these toys are so helpful in training and fun time while they are in their enclosures.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Garth, a German Shepherd mix, came to Operation Kindness with neurological problems that made him unable to walk properly. While in his kennel, he was still able to play, chew and stay engaged with his Kong toy as we were able to train him and get him a custom wheelchair! He has been adopted by a loving family!
