Description

Currently there are around 70 million homeless cats and dogs in the US, with only six to eight million entering shelters annually and another 1.5 million are being euthanised in shelters due to overpopulation and lack of adopters. Operating in Northern Virginia and the Washington Metropolitan area, A Forever Home Rescue Foundation rescues, treats and rehomes abandoned and neglected puppies and dogs. Equipment is vital to maintain the operation of these no-kill volunteer-based shelters and the health and wellbeing of its animal guests. Many shelters suffer from equipment shortages such as food, toys, leashes and medical supplies. KONGs, chew toys made from indestructible rubber, are perfect for shelter dogs as it fulfils their mental and physical needs, improves their oral health and establishes good behaviour.

Importance Importance

Living in an environment with so many other dogs and noisy distractions can stress dogs out. Stress and boredom can lead to inappropriate, destructive and attention-seeking behaviour, which fuels a negative form of mental and physical stimulation. KONG toys are good for all dogs including destructive chewers, anxious puppies and high energy dogs, and allows them to pass the time as happy dogs while waiting for their forever homes.
