We love as the holidays approach because it means we can do our part to give back to shelters and encourage our employees and customers to do the same! Each year, we set up a Kong Giving Tree in each of our locations to help encourage shoppers to buy toys for local shelters in need.
What is a Kong Giving Tree?
A Kong Giving Tree is a tree set up in each store that has tags all over it, like a Christmas tree would have ornaments. Shoppers can pull a tag and each one has a specific toy on it and shelters available that the shopper can choose from. Shoppers bring the tag up to the register and pay for the toy and our team handles the rest. We sort toy donations and coordinate supplies with the local shelters.
Each year we kick off the Kong Giving Tree with Kong-A-Palooza which takes place from November 12-26! This helps to create awareness around the Kong Giving Tree, which goes on from November 12-December 9th. During the time, all Kong toys are also 25% off so it's a great time for shoppers to save at the same time!
Your generosity can help bring a smile to a pet's face that doesn't get to spend the holidays with a loving family! Thank you for supporting local shelters!
