Glad Dogs Nation makes handcrafted dog toys that start out as unwanted children’s stuffed toys. They wash them in hot water using biodegradable detergent, then remove hard eyes and put cute appliqués in their place. They then replace the hard noses with colorful pompoms. Lastly, they add at least one squeaker inside. These toys are then offered at a price below what you’d pay in a pet store – so no one needs to shed a tear if the toy is destroyed during play.
Finally, they spread the gladness by donating 100% of their profits to Glad Dog Foundation, which funds initiatives to stem pet overpopulation, provide food and medical care for dogs, and support other innovative ideas.
Starting on January 12th we will be collecting stuffed animals for this program. Located at the front of the school will be a collection bin. Feel free to send in any of your child’s gently used stuffed animals. Since these are being refurbished as dog toys, please do not send in any extra large stuffed animals.
Thank you in advance for your participation. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Casey Evans at firstname.lastname@example.org.
