animal rights club name ideas??

hi there! i'm currently a freshman and attend a private school in ca. I have a passion for animals and wanted to start an animal rights club at my school but can't decide on a name! I'd love for it to be something catchy, possibly with a cute acronym (examples: SAFE (save animals from exploitation) APES (animal protection and ethical treatment society) or the AAA animal activist association). also looking for interesting ideas for club activities. i'm thinking we could try to make vegan and vegetarian dishes, volunteer at animal shelters, watch animal documentaries, etc.. thoughts??

also feel free to let me know if you think it's a club that people would actually join or not and if not, how to get people to join!! is it true that the more friends you have the more people want to be in your club? i'm fairly shy but i'm willing to go out of my comfort zone for the sake of the animals!! <3

thanks !!

Hi! This is a really great idea and I would definitely join it if I lived in your area. To name a club, you necessarily don't have to have an acronym, but if you would like to keep one that is cool! The more important thing is that you have a purpose and you explain to people what you are going to do in clubs, and that when explaining this club to your sponsor and other peers, you are definite on the mission and things you will do. You can organize volunteer in animal shelters and those areas, which will appeal to people. Yes you need friends in order to jump start it, but if you get those friends to tell their friends to tell their friends, that would get it more popularity. If you can make fliers and a social media presence, that would get even more popularity. You could also hold fundraisers and get all proceedings to go to a charitable organization towards helping animals. Hope this helps!

Hi! I think it is great you want to do something like this! At my school they call it "Affinity for Animals". Out of your acronyms I think AAA is the best but don't be afraid to keep searching! A cool activity that you could do is maybe have a towel/blanket drive where people donate these older items and you donate them to your local animal shelter. Another thing you could do is possibly have an endangered animal as a theme every week. What you can do with this is base your activities off this animal and create games that can enlighten people of its possible extinction. I hope this helps! Good luck legend!
