Our Mission

Tad’s Toys is out to spread the healing power of toys to various shelters and rescues around the Houston area.
Tad (The Abandoned Dog) was found on the side of the road and more or less dead. He could not walk, he was severely malnourished (around 40 pounds UNDERweight), hairless (from two types of mange), and covered in enormous wounds. Thousands of people from all over the world pulled together and donated clothes, food, treats, toys, and their love, attention, and prayers. Tad is still here today. He received his first batch of toys in the mail and he didn’t know what it was or what to do with any of it. As his health slowly improved, Tad found that there is a healing power in toys…one that you can ‘see’ and ‘feel’.We believe that EVERY homeless dog NEEDS this kind of healing. It is essential to their health and well-being. Like The American Red Cross says, “Toys matter, toys heal. Toys entertain, inspire, invite exploration and inquiry. Toys matter, a lot!”
