Help name an animal adoption van

Help come up with a clever name for a mobile animal adoption van

The animal shelter where Mrs. Graygorey volunteers is submitting a request for funds for a mobile adoption van. It may be a better sell if there's a catchy name attached to the vehicle/program - other local shelters seem to have been more successful in securing funds when there has been a clever or catchy name for their vans.

Puns welcome. Please, do your worst.

Buddy Buggy? Or Buddy Bus?

Pet Perambulator? (I know that's probably too much of a mouthful but I just love that word.)

One of our local shelters calls theirs the "MAC" (Mobile Adoption Center). Not terribly cutesy, but it works.

Incredibly, there are only a couple of results in a Google search for Adoptomobile or Adopt-O-Mobile. Also not cutesy, but does what it says on the tin.

I'm partial to "the shaggy wagon" and PAW, but I was also thinking that if you have to write a proposal or something you might talk about "full spectrum dominance of the pet adoption space." (Which would be a tongue-in-cheek take off of the American military's phrase "full spectrum dominance of the battlespace", which describes in part the strategy of having things like aircraft carriers and being able to deploy overwhelming land/sea/air force anywhere on the planet.)

How close could you get to decorating it like a police vehicle without getting in trouble? Because if you can get the visual reference to work, "The Fuzz" would be awesome.

P.S. I find it would help to incorporate the name of the shelter into the name or at least to the overall appearance of the van. Particularly because there are other local shelters with vans you say.

P.P.S. Came across this and that and thought it might be of interest for some on here. Pretty creative.

Thanks for all of the suggestions so far. I've already had to sacrifice a few sips of coffee due to giggling.

travelwithcats: the plan is to incorporate the name of the shelter, but for the time being, I'm afraid we're not far enough along to divulge, so we lose out on some of the potential for cleverness.
