Help needed for name and possibly logo.

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Some of you know by now what happened with the rescue organization that I was with. If not and you're interested in knowing, then the thread is here.
http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=185175


Anyway.

Several people have come to me telling me that I should start a small scale rescue dealing (at first) only with a TNR and medical rescues.

Well we've got a small group of people willing to help out. Financially and with other things (vet transport, etc) We aren't going to start with an actual adoption center yet. We are going to be run out of foster homes. We don't think we'll have that many animals to begin with. We are more concentrating on the TNR than anything.

The thing is, we want to become a registered charity so we can give people tax receipts. It gives people more incentive to give if they know they can get a little something out of it.

But we need a name for it. I've been racking my brain for something having to do with second chances or hope or compassion or something but I can't come up with anything.

I'm also trying to think of a logo, but no luck there. That's not as important as the group name though. We need a name to apply for the canadian charity number.

Any help is super appreciated!

I'm not very good at this, but here are some spur-of-the moment ideas

Second beginnings
Turn around Kitties (somehow I envision cats living at the end of a cul-de-sac with this one...it isn't very good)
A helping Paw or Helping Paws
Kitten Beginnings
Second Chance Cats


That is the best I could do

Save The Strays comes to mind, but I think there already is a rescue with that name.. or maybe Im thinking of Save OUR Strays?

I'm not very creative... but how about "Lucky Cats Rescue"?

(Sort of invokes imagery of the Maneki Neko, the Japanese lucky cats... implying that the cats bring luck to you as well.)

Your logo could be a lucky cat, or to make it simple... the silhouette of a lucky cat.

The only thing I can think of is

Paw Prints
Paw Prints Rescue

Thanks for all the idea's. I really like Second Beginnings and Twice Chosen.

We aren't going to rescue just cats, also. I guess I should have mentioned that. Dogs will be included as well. Just not as a TNR. Since we don't have stray dogs around here.

I am thinking about FurEver Found.

FurEver Found sounds like a good name for a microchip company to me, but I like FurEver Home or something like that

But would that work when the main goal at the moment is medical assistance and TNR?

I thought the suggestion of Helping Paws was rather nice. It could make for a very simple logo that would work well for (cheaper printing) t-shirts. Something simple like a paw or two (one cat, one dog) with the name over it.

I think "FurEver Found" doesn't aptly convey what you've described you will be doing. Although, the alliteration sounded nice!

Yeah. I'm not sure what to do here.
Because I Ddo plan on growing and actually having a shelter inthe London ON area. But for now all we will be doing is medical rescue and TNR.

But I want a name that makes sense. I don't want to have to change the name or apply for a new Charity number.

wondered how you are making out with this?

I see you're from Canada; perhaps something that incorporates that fact, like "Maple Leaf Mutts and Meows", or some such thing. It has a way of inferring it's the official Rescue of Canada. And it would be easy to work a cute puppy/kitty logo inside of a maple leaf symbol.

Me and my friend are not sure but we sorta like Spay And Neuter The Animals (SANTA) lol.

We have pretty much given up on the name bit. But we have already rehomed 2 cats with no name or charity number.

I am still trying to find the stupid charity application ont he government website.

But this is still a go. Just taking a while to get off the ground

Is this the one you're looking for?

It's a quiet day at work and I love doing government searches.

I think it's great that you're doing this - and I'm sure the kitties are glad too.

Here in Midland, we have an organization called SOS Animal Rescue. I don't know if there are rules that would prevent you from using that name, since it is a registered, non-profit 501(c)3 organization. I personally, like the phrase "Animal Rescue" (I think it has that heartstring-tugging quality you are looking for), perhaps there's some variation that would work for you.

Caring Paws Rescue (CPR for sort )

And the logo could be a heart monitor blip, with a pawprint at the end

Help Our Pets- HOP(?)

"Hop to it"

Lol, I dunno.
