LIVONIA, Mich. (AP) — Members of a nonprofit Detroit-based dog rescue group who helped set a Guinness World Records mark for the most dog toys stuffed in one hour only needed a fraction of the time.

The Detroit News reports ( ) members of Detroit Dog Rescue were notified Thursday of the title.

On June 19, a group of staff and volunteers gathered at Pet Supplies Plus headquarters in Livonia for the attempt to stuff more than 2,000 toys with peanut butter in an hour. Guinness says about 70 participants ended up filling 2,100 in 21 minutes, four seconds.

Officials say the stuffed toys were distributed to rescue groups in the area.
