Application Help

Adoption Central's Tips

  • Always note the pet's gender. Never refer to the pet as "it," as it gives the impression that you do not care much about the pet.
  • Use proper spelling and grammar. Most owners really prefer this, as it shows that you put some thought into your application. If English is not your first language, tell the owner! They will be sure to understand.
  • Read over your application before sending it in. Check for errors and make sure that everything is there that should be! It might help to have a friend check over your application too.
  • Most importantly, be yourself! By letting your own good character shine through your application, it shows the owner that this pet means a lot to you, and makes writing your application a lot easier and fun!

Adoption Central's Tips

  • If the name you want to name your pet is taken, take the name and change a few letters in it to make a new one.
  • Choose something that you can remember how to spell, as it would be embarrassing to misspell your own pet's name.
  • Don't limit yourself! Use underscores and numbers if you want. Don't let other people tell you what is a "good name" and what isn't.
  • It's perfectly okay to make up a name! A lot of people have this idea that they have to choose a name that is a real word, or something close to it. That is not the case! Be as creative (or not) as you like!

Fostering Guides

Adoption Central's Tips

Adoption Guilds

  • Make sure that you are ready to take on the commitment of being a foster parent. This means that you must have the space on your account to take on at least one more pet, and that you have the means to make the pet more attractive to prospective owners, i.e. you own the Secret Laboratory Map, have spare paint brushes, etc.
  • Be patient! Sometimes there just isn't a demand for the pet you have to offer... yet. Keep trying to get the word out that your pet is up for adoption, by advertising on the Pound Chat, or possibly even getting listed at Adoption Central!
