A fun way to celebrate National Dog Mom’s Day and help a great organization.

Every year in May there's one Sunday that is dedicated to celebrating moms across the country. Mother's Day lands on Sunday, May 12th this year, and is the one day of the year that kids of all ages do something special for their moms by showering her with love and in some cases gifts...LOL! Consider this a friendly reminder to make sure you do something nice and thoughtful for your mom!!

Every mom deserves a Mother's Day celebration and that includes every mom who has a dog at home, right? Dog moms across the Hudson Valley deserve to be celebrated and the folks at the Dutchess County SPCA have come up with a fun way to do it the day before Mother's Day.
