The goal of Real Dog Moms has always been doing good while having fun. We are here to help you have fun with your dog and meet fellow dog-loving people while giving back to those who need it most in our rescue community. There are already amazing people and rescues doing incredible things in the Chicagoland area and we want to support them however we can. In order to set ourselves up to help them even more, we will be handling our events and donations a bit differently moving forward.
We learned some valuable lessons in 2019 that are leading to this change.
Here's how we are going to change that. Moving forward, all of our Signature Events will have one rotating rescue beneficiary - the same as it's always been.
Signature events include: Small Dog Tea Parties (2x/year), Mini Photoshoots (3x/year), our annual Anniversary Party and Dog Mom's Day Brunch and other larger events we may decide to host.
The difference will be that the proceeds generated from our other events will go directly into a new Real Dog Moms Care fund. This fund will allow us to help the most vulnerable rescue causes and provide emergency support based on need.
Other events we host may include: Romps, Pool Parties, tasting events, craft/DIY events, fitness events, cruises and more.
As always, 100% of the proceeds from all of our events will continue to go straight to animal rescue partners. We will always post here on our website blog and on our social media pages when a discretionary donation is made to a rescue because transparency is incredibly important to us. We want you to know exactly where your money is going. Want to see who we donated to in 2019? Check out our list of rescues here.
We can’t wait to see all of you this year for some new Real Dog Mom get togethers and all of your favorite annual events! Be sure to sign up for email newsletters so you don’t miss any updates.
