Healthy Pet Store hosts “stuff-a-thon” in aid of local dog shelters

A Southampton pet food retailer has teamed up with dog toy brand Kong to raise funds for local dog shelters through a ‘stuff-a-thon’ event.

Healthy Pet Store invited families to its shop in Totton to ‘Stuff a Kong’ with dog-friendly fillings for donation to hounds across the region.

Members of the Healthy Pet Store team were on hand to help volunteers fill the enrichment toys with fruit, vegetables, cheese, meat, fish and dog treats.

Once frozen, the stuffed Kongs were donated to St Francis Animal Shelter, Second Chance Animal Rescue, the Blue Cross rehoming centre in Southampton and the RSPCA Stubbington Ark.

The in-store event was held in recognition of Kong Day, a yearly celebration of the dog toy brand.

Healthy Pet Store managing director Deborah Burrows said: “I’m so pleased to see so many of our visitors rolling up their sleeves and getting stuck into stuffing the Kongs. These toys provide dogs with plenty of stimulation which can help to reduce stress and support overall wellbeing.”

Katie O’Blatch at St Francis Animal Shelter added: “A lot of our sheltered dogs experience stress as they settle into their new environment, so enrichment toys are really important for keeping them occupied and helping them adapt. I’d like to say thank you to everyone who helped prepare this wonderful donation – we’re hugely grateful.”
