Obviously I need a rescue name
« on: April 07, 2003, 02:00:38 AM »
I do rescue, very small scale, but I do it. Obviously I need a rescue name. I'm in Santa Cruz, Ca, and my name is (obviously) Anna.
No reason to use those things, just thoughts. What should I call it, thoughts needed!

How about:

"Anna's salvataggio del ratto"  (Italian - Anna's Rat Rescue)

Furry Friends Rat Rescue
R.A.T.S. (Rescuing All Things Small) Rescue
Second Chance Rat Rescue


OK, these are probably cheesy, but I tried . . . it's late . . . LOL

Do you just take in rats?
Or do you take in other animals as well?

Just rats I think.
 I love other animals, but I can only care for one species of mammal.
Herps are welcome I guess too.

So, could it be something like, Anna's Rat and Herp Rescue?
Or would herps be a special circumstance thing?

Herps are totally a special circumstance thing. They need to REALLY need me, because the live a LONG time and require special care. Plus many rodent people would freak about me rescuing rats and snakes.

Good point.

I guess I'm boring. I can't really come up with anything other than Anna's Rat Rescue.
When I run one (small scale like yours) I know I'm going to call it Ruthie-chan's Rat Rescue.
I can't really think of anything else.

You could get cutsie. Anna's Rattie Rescue. Rascal Rats Rescue, or something like that.

I kinda like the ones Zucca suggested.  My brain is fried, so I can't really come up with any of my own right now.

Hmmm...  Maybe you could use local "landmarks" in your area to get an idea?

If I wind up breeding, the names I chose were both decided upon by the "landscape" in Maine.

If I bred mice, it would be Blueberry Plains Mousery.  I got that from all the wild blueberry fields in Maine.  That, and the predominant color I'd be working with would be blue and blue based.

If I bred rats, it would be Oak Hill Rattery.  I didn't like Blueberry Plains for rats, it didn't sound right.  I wanted to keep a "natural" sounding name, and there is an Oak Hill up the road from here.

I dunno if it helps any or not, but there's my additional 2 cents.

We're in Santa Cruz. Maybe something about the bay, the coast, or the redwoods? I'm no good at this.

3)  The Rats Nest

Still thinking . . .

just to chime in, many of the other names suggested have been used in the past by other rescues

RATS and Second Chance for sure, and i believe that furry something has been used as well...

I thought there might be a chance that someone might have used one or two of those names already - but R.A.T.S. is used by someone - using the exact same phrasing I came up with?  Too strange.   :o

Well, I did come up with those on my own as I am not familiar with any rat rescues, and I am new to rats in general.  But regardless, I tried.   ::)  Good luck in your name search!

how about you combine them all together...

Anna's Second Chance Furry R.A.T.S. of Santa Cruz....

 :P

I'm no good at this either.  Is it just you, or you and a couple friends?  That might make the difference if you use your name or not.

Redwood (or Redwood Grove) Rat Rescue

Gnah, I suck at this.

Other thoughts...something about lighthouses (seems metaphorical) or the beach called Natural Bridges (sounds like an encounter group)

(That oughta get people talking!)

"Bruxing Beauties Rat Rescue"
(I can hear the masses now . . . BRUXING?  What is bruxing?!)

Or my personal favorite:

I *love* Anna's Rat Recycling... you'd probably get more rescues than you knew what to do with, if you listed in the phone book!  I can see it now ..RING "Um, yeah, I've got rats in my house, and uh, I set traps but they didn't work, and I'd hate to kill the darn things anyway, could you uh, come get them and uh, recycle them or something?"

Surfin' Rats Rescue!

Sorry, I couldn't contain myself.  Let's see now... I do like the landmark idea, especially as it lets those interested know exactly where you are... so something as simple as "Santa Cruz Rat Hostel" would be nice.  I like the idea of a rescue as a hostel.  You know, some place where the rats are just passing through, but at the stop they get care and love and directions to a happier place.
Love, Sabrina
