Name that Dog!
Ever wonder how we come up with names for the ITV dogs? We try to be creative. We sometimes try to find names to match the dog’s personality. Sometimes, we just pick names of favorite characters or people we know. Would you like to get naming rights to an ITV rescue dog? Do you have a beloved pet that passed away and you want to honor him/her by helping us name an ITV dog? Do you want to give a gift to someone with a donation to help our dogs and have the dog named in that person’s honor? For a $50 donation, you will get the naming rights to an ITV puppy or dog whom we rescued without a name. To make the donation, send the donation to 1417 N. Stockwell, Evansville, IN 47715 or make a donation online at ITVrescue.org/donate. All donations are tax-deductible. Make sure you include the name with your donation and an email address so that we can email you a photo of the dog that you named. Thank you for supporting the dogs of ITV!
