Help me think of a good name for this new venture

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Sharon Lee's Virtual Assistance

picHi Everybody-In 2010 two friends of mine that I met while working these past 3.5 months and I are planning on starting a "NO -KILL" animal sanctuary. Besides domestic animals it would also eventually include bigger animals like horses, elephants etc. We are getting together on Friday for dinner. We originally were going to start out on a big scale but decided to start out small instead and with word of mouth and learning as we go then we can expand as we are able.

Now one of the things we really want to make a decision on when we have our first monthly meeting of 2010 is what to name our new business so that we could start making marketing pieces including business cards as well as just start getting our name out there. Now I know that a number of my readers are BIG animal lovers but also very smart too, so I am asking everybody to give their suggestion of a good name we could call this new business. I will be taking any and all suggestions to our Friday night dinner meeting.  Thank you in advance for your input. <warm SMILE>

Sharon, What a wonderful thing to do!  I have to say that getting here late allowed me to read the answers and I loved Mary's Gimme Shelter :)  Fact is, it IS catchy and something people aren't likely to forget!!

Hi Mary-I love that. I can't wait to share all these ideas with Jeane and Linda on Friday.  I am excited as well. I think 2010 is going to be wonderful. Thank you for your wonderful friendship. Happy New Year. <SMILE>

Hi Carole-I think all the suggestions here show imagination and creativity and I appreciate all of them. I agree with you about GIMME SHELTER being catchy. Have a great New Years. Thank you for your wonderful friendship. <SMILE>

Hi Andrea-I thought it was too. Jeane and I had started talking and it came up and we are all excited about it. It will be filled with challenges as anything worthwhile does but it will be so worth it. Don't worry about not having a name cause see that is why I asked everybody cause I wouldn't have been able to think of any myself. Happy New Year my friend. Thank you for being a wonderful friend. <SMILE>

Sharon:  How about Virginia is for Animal Lovers?  You can call it VAL's Place for short.  I can't wait to hear more.  I love your idea and would love to know how to help.

Hi Sharon:

Hmmmmm...I really liked Mary's the "Give me Shelter" too.

If I can think of anything better, I'll come back and comment again.

Our non-profit rescue is called Pet Agree Rescue, we would call our shelter that.

Best wishes with your shelter, that is WONDERFUL!!!!

Sharon, first of all BLESS you and your wonderful friends for doing such a great thing for our beloved furbabies.  I like the Gimme Shelter name.  I think you need to really capitalize on the fact that you are NO KILL, and use this in the name.  FurBaby's Forever Home, A No Kill Animal Sanctuary.  Sorry, not many name ideas, but I will keep at it!  Let us know how it goes!  How is your kitty Lindsey right?

Hi Kristin-You my friend and Toula are two great roles models when it comes to BIG hearts for animals. My friend Chris Ann Cleland is as well. If you haven't read any of her blogs you would like her. I appreciate your input and will keep everyone posted. Yes, it is Lindsey. I had to take her to the vet as she is still having trouble with diarrhea. They gave her another shot of predisone but probably will need bloodwork to make sure nothing else is going on. Got a prescription diet for her that is $60 a bag. OUCH!!!! Happy New Year my friend. <SMILE>

Good luck and I admire you
