Celebrate KONG Day with Kahoots Feed and Pet

KONG Day is an annual celebration dedicated to the joy and importance of play for all dogs. Mark your calendars for August 4th as we come together to honor the special bond we share with our pets. Kahoots Feed and Pet is excited to partner with Helen Woodward Animal Center (HWAC) and KONG for this year's KONG Day, focusing on supporting local animal rescues and providing enriching experiences for our canine friends.

What is KONG Day?

KONG Day is all about celebrating the connection we have with our dogs and emphasizing the significance of play in their lives. From working dogs to shelter dogs and family pets, August 4th and the entire month of August are dedicated to ensuring every dog gets the playtime they deserve. Activities include social media giveaways, raffles, exclusive merchandise, educational webinars from KONG, and special events at local pet retailers like Kahoots.

Kahoots and HWAC Partnership

This year, Kahoots Feed & Pet has teamed up with Helen Woodward Animal Center for a main event at our 4S Ranch location to celebrate shelter animals. HWAC is a renowned no-kill operation dedicated to providing education, therapy, and adoption opportunities for animals of all ages. Our partnership aims to enhance the lives of rescue animals and help them find their forever homes.

Other Participating Locations

While our 4S Ranch location will host the main event, many of our other stores will also be celebrating KONG Day with their own special events and KONG-Exclusive Adoption Kits for adopted dogs. These include partnerships with local rescues and shelters to facilitate pet adoptions and community engagement.

Each of these locations will host their own unique events tailored to their partnerships with local rescues and shelters. While the specific details may vary, the underlying mission remains the same: to celebrate the joy of play and support the adoption and enrichment of pets in need.

Why KONG Day Matters

KONG Day isn't just a celebration; it's a movement to highlight the importance of play in a dog's life. Play is essential for a dog's mental and physical well-being. It provides an outlet for their energy, helps them develop social skills, and strengthens the bond between pets and their owners. For shelter animals, play can make a significant difference in their quality of life, showcasing their personalities to potential adopters and increasing their chances of finding a forever home.
