Mother’s Day for Dog Owners
What’s the best way to say Happy Mother’s Day to a dog mom? Can dog moms celebrate Mother’s Day? Well, we asked a few of our four-legged friends and got enthusiastic tail wags, doggy smiles, and more than a few head tilts. The answer was clear: Mother’s Day for dog owners IS just a reminder there are all sorts of ways to be a mom.
Since It’s almost Mother’s Day, we wanted to take a moment to say… Dog moms, we see you! We know how hard you work to provide the best life for your furry baby, and we want to celebrate you this Mother’s Day! Here are three fun ways to celebrate the special doggy mamas in your life:
- Plan a party and invite your dog mom friends! Invite your dog-loving friends to come over and bring their pups, too. You can set up an obstacle course in your backyard and have a competition to see who is top dog, or just let the dogs take a dip in the pool (if it’s safe). Serve healthy snacks for humans, but don’t forget to give the pups some special treats, too!
- Donate to an animal shelter or non-profit. Prefer to spend the day quietly celebrating the dog mom in your life? Consider making a donation in her name to an animal shelter or non-profit that’s working to make sure that every dog gets a home and a loving family. There are so many rescues and shelters in need, you can get a bit creative! If you want to do something more personal than writing a check, supplies are always needed. Items like dog food, treats, toys, bowls, collars, and leashes are always needed and appreciated.
- Get your dog mom’s pooch a special gift! If you’re buying a present for your favorite dog mom or dog mom friend, it might be nice to get her pup something special too. Get them something like an adorable bandana (customize it with your dog mom’s favorite color!) or a squeaky toy they can toss around while they play catch this summer.
And if you’re thinking about adding a furry friend to your family, consider adopting from an animal shelter on behalf of her as well. Happy Mother’s Day to dog moms!
