Dig – The Dog Person’s Dating App founded National Dog Mom’s Day to celebrate and thank the dog moms who dedicate their love and support every day to their dogs. It’s a different, special and visceral love that deserves its own day to be recognized and appreciated.

Dog moms have been asking for a Dog Mom’s Day with this Change.org petition spearheaded by Dig – The Dog Person’s Dating App, on social media, and on dog blogs for years. The creation of this separate day will emphasize the respect for all moms and their right to showcase the love of their kids – fur or not. Thanks to everyone who signed and shared the petition! The Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed National Dog Mom’s Day to be observed the second Saturday of May beginning in 2018.
