I’m so excited to introduce you all to Puppy Mama Inc, a new app launched by my childhood bestie, Theresa Piasta, that is very close to my heart. To give you a little background on Theresa, she is an Iraq-War veteran who suffered from PTSD. After suffering and struggling to overcome this painful illness, she finally met just who she needed to help her through her darkest days – her dog Waffles. Waffles comforted Theresa and helped her see light in the world when she didn’t think it was possible. It was this bond that made her realize she wasn’t the only one out there who could use some puppy love. The solution? Puppy Mama Inc!
The Puppy Mama mission is to make the world a more dog friendly place, bring dog lovers together, and to bring some much needed awareness to canine therapy. The social media app (which is launching this month!) will provide a platform for puppy mamas to connect and share with one another. The app will allow you to set up puppy play dates, and rate businesses, hotels, restaurants, bars, transportation, and workspaces according to their dog-friendliness. Puppy Mama is also a place where you can come and share your story, while also connecting with people who may be going through similar things that you are.
If you’d like to be a part of the Puppy Mama journey, you can do so by following along on Instagram and helping to raise funds on Kickstarter. Also, If you live in the bay area, I would love for you to join me in attending the Puppy Mama launch party on March 18th (find details on the event here!).
To say I am proud of my brave friend is an understatement! I know this app is going to bring so much paw-sitive change into the world and I am looking forward to being a part of it!
Congratulations Theresa and the entire Puppy Mama Inc Team!
