Help create a Glad Dogs Nation!

Gald Dogs Nation founder, Marianne Ahern, with Boy Scout Pack 122 in West Chester PAScout Troops,
Elementary & Middle Schools

You can support our efforts by hosting Stuffed Toy Drives. We can provide you with signage, if desired, but we encourage the kids to have fun and create their own. Initiative leaders will receive a Certificate of Glad Dogs Accomplishment and recognition on our website and Facebook page.

A Glad Dogs Nation representative can kick off the drive by speaking to the kids on a variety of topics:

  • The proper way to introduce yourself to a dog
  • What dogs try to tell us – and why we don’t hear them
  • Things you should never, ever feed to a dog
  • The importance of animal rescue

If you would like to host a drive, email ma@gladdogsnation.com

 



High School Community Service & Fundraising Clubs

You can support our efforts by running a toy drive in your school or community. We will provide signs and instructions to get started.

Quilting, Sewing and Craft Groups

You can support our efforts by helping us upcycle the stuffed toys we receive as donations. We cut out the hard plastic eyes and glue appliques over the holes using non-toxic glue. We cut out hard noses and glue a pompom in the spot. And we cut open the bellies, insert a squeaker inside and stitch the bodies back up.

If you want to dedicate one of your sessions to helping Glad Dogs Nation, we will supply everything you need – glue guns, glue, appliques, thread, needles and more. All you have to bring is your creativity. Everyone who participates will receive a $5 coupon for a Glad Dogs Nation purchase and recognition on our website and Facebook page.

​To get started, email ma@gladdogsnation.com



Communities

Kiwanis Clubs, Rotary Clubs, community groups, libraries, and places of worship can fulfill their outreach missions by hosting a sewing party in their local communities.

We provide the toys and supplies. You can promote the event in your newsletter and on your website and Glad Dogs Nation will promote your organization using Facebook, Twitter and our website.

To start your own event, email ma@gladdogsnation.com


 

Individuals

If we reduce our operating costs, we can increase the profits we have to combat pet overpopulation. Many of the things we use to create toys and pet beds can be found on our Amazon Wish List. You can support us by purchasing these items for us.
