Life just got a little better for the African Wild Dogs at the Kansas City Zoo. The dogs are extremely rare and endangered carnivores with as few as 3,000 to 5,000 existing in the wild. They have incredibly strong and powerful jaws to help them take down large prey, but also make it difficult to find a chew toy they will not destroy or ingest. My Good Dog, a division of Quabaug Corporation, donated Vibram balls, a durable natural rubber toy, to the zoo.
“The Vibram Balls have made a significant impact on our enrichment program for these dogs,” says Kansas City Zoo keeper Linda Long.
