Appeal for enrichment toys for dogs in Glasgow

Dog with Kong

The Scottish SPCA is appealing for enrichment toys for dogs in its Glasgow Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre.

We are currently caring for over 100 dogs. Many of these dogs are not able to be rehomed as they are involved in court cases or are receiving veterinary treatment or rehabilitation.

Centre manager Anna O’Donnell said, “Many dogs don’t adapt well to a kennel environment so providing them with enrichment toys can really help to stimulate them mentally and keep their mind active.

“We are in need of Kong toys which are great as they provide enrichment and a treat for the dogs in our care.

“As incredible as our team is, there is no substitute for a secure and loving home. Any form of enrichment that is going to help these dogs to adapt to a home environment, such as Kongs, will have a positive effect.

“A lot of the dogs we are caring for will be with us for a while so we are asking the public to donate Kongs to keep our dogs entertained and happy before they are ready to find their forever homes.”

Kongs can be donated via Amazon wishlist here or sent from another online retailer that can deliver. Items can also be left in the donation bins outside the centre at 125 Kinnell Pl, Glasgow G52 3RY.

If anyone is concerned about an animal, please do not hesitate to contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999. We need your support today. From as little as £1, you can save lives. Please support the Scottish SPCA today.
