The GREAT NAME Drive!

The GREAT NAME Drive!

M.A.I.N. has already saved over 150 dogs from euthanasia since we began in January of 2012…

MAIN dogs!We try and give great names to all of these kids, but after so many, we find ourselves drawing a blank sometimes! So, give us a hand, PLEASE!

Just use the Facebook Comments area below to add your favorite names and the next time, we’re at a loss for one – we’ll come here and take a peek!

and to EVERYONE that has made the M.A.I.N. Program SO incredibly successful…THANK YOU!

 

 

 

 

Just a reminder or two:

  • Names need to be at least 4 letters long
  • Names should not be common words that could be used in a sentence

We’ve gotten from all of you already!  As these names are used, they’ll link to the pages for the corresponding dogs.  Thanks SO much to everyone – and keep all the great names coming!

Have you thought about allowing donors to name the dogs, especially if they contribute a substantial amount?

That’s a fun idea, Krista! We did do a “name drive” with Churchill- all those who donated a minimum of $5 got to submit a name for consideration. It was successful, so I think in the future, we will do some variation of it…maybe something like you suggested as well. 🙂 -Heather

Hey Beth! Denny is still with M.A.I.N, but he recently had a meet and greet; we are hoping he has his fur-ever home soon! At this time, we don’t have any dogs in boarding that would need walking, but we are always in need of foster homes if you are interested. Here is the link to the foster app: https://medicalanimalsinneed.com/we-need-your-help/volunteering-for-m-a-i-n/foster-care/foster-care-application/ or email us at medicalanimalsinneed@gmail.com for more information.
Thanks for reaching out! 🙂

names are so very important to the mental health of the rescue dog .the name should bring a smile to the voice of the human that says it .think out side the box of names.try names from movies,songs,kid rhymes.examples, TaaDaa!!ScoobieDoo(were are you?)Patty Cake(kid rhyme)Tupilo Honey(country song)(kisses are sweeter from Tupilo Honey)use names from towns like Kissamee in Florida.Jetson from the cartoon.Bilbo or Hobbit from the book, The Hobbit.have fun and keep a SMILE in your voice.

Witchy, Livia, Evony, Kitah are names from our one dogs but in Sweden some of the old person names are really popular like:
Svea, Astrid, Tage, Berit, Hedvig, Bruno, Bosse, Stina

Love the work you do for all the dogs <3
