Pets are smaller versions of Animals that accompany the player's current animal and can be purchased throughout Jamaa. They can be bought in Claws N' PawsFlippers N' Fins, the Diamond Shop, the Pets-Only Party, or through the Pets section of the Change Your Look menu. Diamond shop pets cost 3 Diamonds each, while most (besides promotional) pets cost 400 Gems. Pets were first announced on June 9, 2011, and were introduced on June 23, 2011.

Choose a Pet

This menu is very similar to the menu the player sees when making a new animal, except pets are displayed instead of playable animals. It can be accessed by clicking on the pet adoption icons scattered around the world and certain parties. The menu can also be found by clicking on the Pets button in the Change Your Look panel and then clicking on the blue butterfly icon in an empty slot. All of the pets that can be currently purchased can be found in this menu. You can also set the pet free by pressing the cage icon below on the bottom left. It will ask you if you are sure you want to free it or not.

Pet Customization

When a pet is being purchased, it can be customized with one of twenty primary colors, one of twenty secondary colors, one of six eye types, and three different body modifications that each have four possible choices. After the pet's base appearance has been selected, the player can choose a two-part name for the pet. The final result of these choices is permanent and the customization cannot be changed once the pet is purchased. After a pet has been customized and purchased, they will receive an Adoption Certificate with unique attributes for favorite food and toy, but these attributes cannot be customized or foreseen.

Promotional Pets

This is the pop-up when a promotional pet is unlocked.

Some pets can be received as a "Promo Gift" alongside other purchases such as retail Membership gift cards and Adopt A Pet Jazwares Toys. The Monthly Member Gifts would also provide exclusive pets, but that feature has since been discontinued. The pets that were received from membership promotions can be recreated at the standard price of 400 Gems; however, the Adopt a Pet promotions can be created and entered only once (ex. Pet Firefly).

Pet Shops

Pet Shop Description
Claws N Paws Outside Example.png Claws N' Paws Claws N' Paws is a shop where most of the main land Pets can be purchased along with common household items for their pets. It is found in Appondale inside the large savanna tree and is accessible through the world map.
Underwater Pet Shop.PNG Flippers N' Fins Flippers N' Fins is a shop where the aquatic pets can be purchased. It is located in Crystal Reef. Unlike its land counterpart Claws N' Paws, Flippers N' Fins does not sell any den items related to pets.
Jamaa-Township Diamond-Shop.png Diamond Shop Each pet in the Diamond Shop costs 3 Diamonds, and if the player frees a pet, they will not receive any Gems or Diamonds in return. If the player has bought a pet with Diamonds, they will be given the accessibility to buy the same pet again with Gems.

Pet Games

Pet games are similar to other mini-games in Jamaa, except that they require players to have the corresponding pet following them. When playing, the player's pet will actually appear in the mini-game and the player will get to control them. The current pet games are Ducky Dash for a pet ducky, Disc Toss for a pet puppy, and Sssssnake for a pet snake.

Pet Effects

Unlocking the skull effect for a snake.

Pet effects are special rewards that can only be unlocked by playing the pet mini-games. Each pet effect causes small colorful shapes to appear around the pet; puppies have bones as their effect, duckies have eggs, and snakes have skulls. To obtain these effects, the player must collect 100 golden rubber duckies, 100 golden discs, or 100 golden mice depending on the pet game. These can be collected by the individual pets gradually while playing the pet games and it is not necessary to collect them all at once.

Trivia

  • The last name "raccoon" is listed twice when naming a pet, clicking it will result in cycling through the names until it stops at the first "raccoon".
  • While the original, random pet creation was still being used, players that created a pet, which already came with a rare item, would be rewarded with the "One of a Kind!" achievement medallion. This achievement was removed when the achievements list was relocated to the Change Your Look menu.
  • In June 2015, the "Pet Finder" menu that had been previously used to select a pet has been replaced with the "Choose an Animal" menu, which was later renamed to "Choose a Pet".
  • On April 13, 2017, pet eggs were released. This state was only temporary, so in three days the egg could hatch into a Pet Falcon, Pet Baby Chick, Pet Crocodile, on May 14, 2017, a Pet Platypus, and on June 22, 2017, a Pet Echidna. On April 21, 2019, the Pet Sparrow was released.
  • Flying Animals (such as Eagles, Falcons, Owls, and Toucans) can only use flying pets (ex: Hummingbird).
  • Land animals can use flying and land pets as their pets.
  • Pet Turtles, Pet Hippos, Pet Penguins, Pet Seals, Pet Otters, Pet Polar Bears, and Pet Platypuses are currently the only pets that can be used both on land and underwater.
  • Pet Hamsters, Pet Seahorses, Pet Honeybees, Pet Penguins, Pet Roosters, Pet Giraffes, and Pet Dodos are currently the only non-member pets so far besides Pet Joeys and promotional pets.
  • When a pet wears a certain item, it can sometimes allow the pet to have a special "play" move.
  • There is not a pet counterpart for Wolves.
  • Although Pet Sugar Gliders "fly", they cannot be used with flying animals.
  • Pets can be released (recycled), but gems are not returned as with items.
  • The Pet Reindeer is considered the Deer counterpart.
  • So far, there are only two parties that can only be accessed if the player has a pet. The first and older one being the Pets Only Party where special features and pet items can be found and bought. The second, more recent party is the Play-As-Your-Pet Party, where the player can play as their pet.
  • The pet customization screen allows for 153,600 unique combinations (20 primary colors × 20 secondary colors × 6 eye options × (4×4×4) body options) for each pet. If the pet is further customized using Pet Stop, there are a staggering 34,560,000 unique combinations (9 primary accessories (4 rare + 4 regular + 1 blank) × 5 secondary accessories (4 regular + 1 blank) × 5 tertiary accessories (4 regular + 1 blank)) for every single pet.
  • When five of the Toy Pet House codes are used, an unnamed pet will be given as a reward.
  • There is a glitch for some accounts where all of the pets after the Pet Snake fail to display in the Choose a Pet menu. The pets that end up missing are the Pet Hamster, Pet Butterfly, Pet Puppy, Pet Ducky, Pet Frog, and Pet Kitty, however, these pets can still be purchased by visiting the appropriate adoption icons around Jamaa. The precise cause of this glitch is still unknown as it only affects certain Jammers.
  • After pet trading was introduced, there was a glitch that allowed Jammers to recreate new versions of the pets they had been traded, even if they had never obtained the pet originally. This glitch has since been fixed.
  • On August 18, 2016, pet Trading was introduced.
  • On September 16, 2016, Adoption Certificates were introduced. Pets purchased before then were also given an Adoption Certificate, but their adoption date was listed as "???" because it was unrecorded.
  • There have been several glitches over the years that caused Diamond Shop pets to cost only 400 Gems for the first purchase instead of the listed price in Diamonds.
  • Pets could not be placed in Dens until March 1, 2012, when an update changed this.
  • There is a glitch while placing a pet in a den. A splashing graphic appears around the pet even though the pet is not moving like it is swimming. It is unknown why this glitch occurs.
  • A pet can only be placed in dens if it is not already accompanying the player.
  • There was a glitch where you could make Adopt-a-Pet pets with gems if you had them in your inventory. This glitch is now fixed.
  • There was a glitch where pets placed in dens have nothing on them. This glitch is now fixed.
  • There is a glitch when a player is given a promo pet, their pet inventory increases by one.
  • When a girl - Meagyn - visited AJHQ she was given a free custom pet to be available to all Jammers, which resulted in the Meagyn's Pet Bear.
