The Most Popular New York City Dog Names of 2015
With such a diverse population, where do pet parents draw their inspiration for their dog names? Despite being a 'Concrete Jungle,' New Yorkers love to name their pets after nature, and rank in third place just behind Los Angeles and Seattle for the most nature-inspired names. With some of the best restaurants and food experiences in the world, New York falls just outside of the top 3 cities (Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco) for dogs with foodie-themed names. The city's obsession with the Royal Family shines through: New York comes in second place for the most royal-themed names. The top three are, fittingly: Duke, Princess, and Prince, with Duchess not too far behind.
Wondering how much you can expect to pay for a night on Rover.com? Check out our average dog sitting rates to get an idea before you start a conversation with a sitter.
Sit a Dog, Save a Life
Sit a Dog, Save a Life lets you raise money for local dogs-in-need by doing something you do already: asking your neighbors to watch your dog instead of leaving them in a kennel. Many Rover sitters in New York City donate a percentage of their earnings to nonprofits through Sit a Dog, Save a Life. When you book with a sitter who has the Rover Donation Badge on their profile, you're helping dogs in need, right here in New York City.
Jersey Animal Coalition
Founded in 1989, Jersey Animal Coalition (JAC), a not for profit organization, has provided a safe haven to thousands of animals, depending solely on the generosity of the community to keep its operations alive. It is truly a 100% no-kill organization, taking care of animals regardless of age or physical condition and giving them love and necessary medical care until responsible, caring homes can be found.
One Step Closer Animal Rescue
One Step Closer Animal Rescue (O.S.C.A.R.) in Sparta, New Jersey, is a non-profit rescue organization that saves dogs and cats from desperate situations. They rescue pets from overcrowded shelters where animals are euthanized due to lack of space. O.S.C.A.R. volunteers care for these pets in our network of foster homes where they receive the loving care they deserve. They ensure that all pets in their care receive the proper veterinary attention and vaccinations, and that the animals are spayed/neutered. All of O.S.C.A.R.'s dogs and cats are great animals that deserve loving homes.
More on New York CityThe Big Apple - home of the Westminster Dog Show, bialys, and dirty-water hot dogs. New Yorkers are known for their signature tastes and proud of it. And we're proud to participate in New Yorkers' love for dogs.
With so many parks and city walks to choose from, it's easy to get caught in the bustle at the Union Square dog run. However, at the Fort Tryon dog run, dog owners find solace lounging in a gazebo overlooking the Hudson River while their furry companions socialize on the canine playgrounds.
At Rover, we are proud to list sitters who take their love for dogs personally. By donating to local charities via Rover's Sit A Dog, Save a Life program, NYC dog lovers actively contribute to organizations such as PAWS NY and Animal Haven.
