Enrichment

Friends knows that the shelter pets can get restless while waiting for their new family so we have made it a point to provide the shelter with the necessary enrichment like various toys, especially Kongs, to provide stimulation for the dogs, and small toys for cats. In total, Friends has donated over $2500 worth of enrichment items to the shelter… that’s a lot of fun!
