What's in a Name? Ask These Dumb Friends League Animals

How do you name 22,000 pets each year? At the Dumb Friends League, themes help. The Pet Admissions team, which is responsible for naming thousands of pets each year, likes to keep the process interesting. A collection of mice named after cheese, to a litter of kittens named after literary figures...or just some good, old-fashioned puns like Pawdrey Hepburn. Here are a few cleverly named animals up for adoption at the Dumb Friends League right now. All photos by Kenzie Bruce.
