Let's Name a Puppy Campaign
Let's Name a Puppy!!!
Please join us! The "Let's Name a Puppy Campaign" begins NOW! Have you ever wondered how guide dogs get their names? Have you ever thought of a perfect name for an adorable puppy?
Here is your chance to be a part of naming an actual Guide Dog puppy. Mommies with Guides is committed to raising $5,000 to be donated to Guide Dogs for the Blind. The $5,000 amount will cover the entire cost of breeding, whelping, socializing, and veterinary care for one Guide Dog puppy in training.
Each donor can submit one potential name for consideration. When our $5,000 goal is reached, the top three names will be chosen by the Mommies with Guides officers based on frequency, uniqueness, or historical reference. We will then post on both the website as well as the Facebook page and we will have all viewers (YOU) will then vote for your favorite of the three finalists. The name with the most votes will then be presented to Guide Dogs for the Blind as our name choice for our puppy!
100% of all donations made to the “Let's Name a Puppy Campaign” will be donated to Guide Dogs for the Blind. With each $15.00 dollar donation you will have one name submission.
Each guide dog has a very unique name; no two guide dogs have the same name. The name must begin with one of the following three letters: M, N, or O
We suggest the following categories for your name selection:
1. Historical reference (places or people) 2. Colors 3. Food
The name with the most votes will then be presented to Guide Dogs for the Blind as our name choice for our puppy.
