After receiving a ton of endearing, funny,
interesting, odd, and clever submissions for our contest
asking how you would like to rename "mutts" with a moniker that
celebrates rescued dogs'
uniqueness and diversity, we've narrowed the list to four terms, and
the pollsters are ready to start tallying the votes.
The winning name will be made into a
bumper sticker reading, "I ♥ my ____," that will be sold at PETA's CafePress store.
But the smarty who submitted the winning term will snag a free sticker, along
with a gift basket brimming with goodies for their pedigree-free pup.
Stay tuned to see which name will claim
Poll closes December 12th and
winner will be notified by December 15th.
