Donate and Adopt Pets through the Azeroth Adoption Agency

March 04, 2015
Azeroth Adoption Agency - Donate and Adopt WoW Pets!Once again, we want to shine the community spotlight on someone who's doing something extraordinary for the pet collecting community.

Rusti Site MVP, an avid WoW player and pet collector, took it upon herself to create the Azeroth Adoption Agency. Her vision is helping hundreds of virtual pets find loving homes in the collections of the players who need them most.

What is the Azeroth Adoption Agency?

Rusti explains:

"The Azeroth Adoption Agency is similar to an animal shelter in real life. We take in pets that people don't need and find homes for the ones that need them. This helps others to fill their collections with easier-to-collect pets, allowing them to focus on the harder-to-get ones.

"We occasionally have some really nice pets too, thanks to our amazing donators!"

How does it work?
"Anyone that joins is allowed to adopt pets. Our aim is to fulfill requests for pets that people don't have, provided that we have them in stock. So anyone that is interested need only do the following:

  • Read over the information, then register an account at our official AAA Forums and make a post in the membership section to request membership. You must include your battle tag (for us to contact you). Requests that have not been posted in the official forums will be denied.
  • Make a level 1 orc alt on the Bladefist server (US). (Any horde race or class is fine, as long as you're not in one of the secluded starter zones.) Run to Sen’jin Village and you can take the free flight to Orgrimmar from there.
  • Once a staff member or myself has made contact, your level 1 alt will be invited into the guild where you can browse the pets, make requests or ask any questions."


How can people help?
"What keeps us moving is donated pets.

"Another account on WarcraftPets has been set up under the username AzerothAdoptions. People can view the pets we are accepting under the WANTED tab. Some pets we would never outright accept due to their value or difficulty to obtain. But there are plenty that are easier to get and less valuable that we tend to go through quickly.

"Without the wonderful donators, this would not be thriving so well. They are the heart and soul of the agency!"

QuestionWhy did you create Azeroth Adoption Agency?

AnswerIt actually started off as my own personal project to find homes for several dozen extra pets I had taking up space in my storage. Then someone else requested that I help them find homes for theirs, then another person made the same request. Before I knew it, I had more pets than I started out with!

So I made a guild to provide storage and facilitate people being able to view the pets up for adoption. The guild bank quickly grew to six tabs considerably stocked with pets. So we also have a secondary guild to house all of the extras for restocking.


QuestionWhat got you interested in pet collecting and pets?

AnswerI have almost always been a casual player. In my early days on WoW, a friend gifted me a Mechanical Squirrel and that introduced me to vanity pets. Before long, I'd bought all the vendor pets and had even obtained some of the whelps.

It's been thrilling to watch as the amount of pets in the game has grown and even more exciting to now battle with them and collect so many wild pets.


QuestionWhat's your favorite pet?

AnswerOh it's so hard to choose! There are so many and some of them have such sentimental value to them. But I have to say that I adore the Pandaren Water Spirit. He's so beautifully designed and has such an adorable face. Not to mention he can kick some serious rear! That adorable face is sure deceiving!


QuestionAnything else you'd like to share?

AnswerI really want to send out a huge thank you to all of the people who have donated to the agency. Many have taken their time to farm and make pets. Some have even gone as far as searching their AH for great deals on pets to donate (which blows me away even more).

The kindness and compassion the community has shown through this project has reinforced my faith in knowing that there are some very nice people still in this game. These guys are the real rockstars!

I would love to do this & think the idea is great. Sad that they are full with so many people wanting to join. :( I have a lot of duplicates that need homes.

Pet Peeves on Zul'jin (US) does something kinda like that, they are a very pet focused guild and also (atleast anyone I've talked to) are friendly (and especially newbie friendly).  So anyone on Zul'jin could also look them up.

 

 

PS) Shiini is either the Guild Leader or one of the leaders/officers.

I would like to thank Rusti and Wakamaru (sorry couldn't find WCP profile) for all their hard work on this venture. This is really an awesome thing you are doing and I am so thankful for the pets I was able to adopt. I plan to try and donate more pets in the future, I only had multiples of a couple and I leveled them up to 15 to make sure they were house trained and people friendly before they found their forever homes. Thanks again for this wonderful service!! :) ♥
