The Real Dog Moms have a goal of being an inclusive community of dog-crazed mommas. Coming together to do good while having fun. We host monthly events for just moms and ones for moms and their dogs (we love dads, too). We firmly believe that together we can do more for our community and sincerely enjoy growing a network between dog moms, dog related business and rescues.
Check out our events page to see what's fun coming up next!
Our first group event was in June 2017, the Chicago PAWS walk. Team name "Chicago Dog No Ketchup." We were 20 Real Dog Moms and we raised just under $3K in one month. Our second major fundraiser has been the charity calendar. We hosted a contest via Instagram and selected 16 local dogs to be involved in a 2018 calendar to raise money for the Trio Animal Foundation. Big thanks to local pet photographer Laura Photos Pets.
Our goal is continually raise money for local shelters through our events. Since beginning to host events in September of 2017 we have raised over $18,000 for Chicago Animal Shelters are we aren't stopping any time soon. We actually even filed as a B Corporation, Real Dog Moms, in the State of Illinois and are committed to creating community and helping out local small businesses and rescues/shelters.
The Real Dog Moms want to start 2018 off helping our community find ways to become more involved with rescues, shelters and the like. If you have time but not finances, if you have a car to transport animals, but can't foster. Look here for ways to get involved, how ever often and local to you. Or you can find rescues Amazon wishlists so you can send items directly to the them to help out.
Want to become involved, let us know.
