How Does Our "Adoption Day" Event Work???
Updated: Feb 24
Our next Adoption Day event is happening Saturday, March 12th. Tickets HERE!
These 18+ events are completely unique, immersive human pet play parties designed with pet player matchmaking and guided pick-up play in mind. What makes them truly special is the "Adoption Zone," a booth and system inspired by real bio-pet adoptions, where you can put yourself up for adoption or find your newest pet.
But how does it work?? Let's walk you through it!
IF YOU’RE A PET
If you're a human pet who wants to be put up for adoption, you may do one of two things:
By doing this, you will have the option to consent to being contacted before the event by potential Adopters, allowing for pre-event negotiation.
You must buy a ticket to the event before you will be listed for adoption.
You will need to check in with the Adoption Booth once you arrive at the event so we know you’re here!
Come to our Adoption Booth during the event and fill out the Adoption Form (You can do this at any time throughout the event)
The Adoption Form will list things like Species/Breed, Interests, Limits, If You Play Well With Kids/Other Pets, What You're Looking For, etc. If you wish, we will take a Polaroid photo of you on the day of the event and attach it to your form so you're easy to identify. You'll be able to take this photo home with you.
ANY human animal species can go up for adoption. You may also elect to be a “bonded pair” if you want to be adopted with a friend or partner.
Once you've filled out your form, you can enter the Adoption Zone, a chill play area where you can interact with the other adoptable pets as well as any potential Adopters that come to visit the Zone.
Alternatively, you’re welcome to go play in the Open Mosh Area. If an Adopter is interested in you, one of our volunteers will come get you.
IF YOU’RE AN ADOPTER
If you want to be an Adopter, visit the Zone to see who catches your eye! Alternatively, you can peruse the available Adoption Forms and/or ask an Adoption Volunteer to help you find a pet that would be a good fit for you.
Handlers, littles, packs, and even other human animals are all welcome to be Adopters.
Tell an Adoption Volunteer once you've decided on a pet you'd like to meet!
THE ADOPTION PROCESS
If the pet is interested in potentially playing with the Adopter, you’ll go into a private room for a “meet and greet.”
This is essentially a scene negotiation interview mediated by the Volunteer. If you have current littles/pets with you, they'll also have a chance to meet the new pet and make sure everyone gets along.
The Volunteer will ensure nothing is missed in the negotiation process. They will also be there to ensure the safety of the scene being discussed, as well as to step in if they feel the Adopter/pet match would be unsafe for any reason.
Once the Volunteer "approves" the adoption, the Adopter/s and pet/s are welcome to go play! You can sign up to play in one of the private rooms, or play in the Open Mosh Area. Congrats!
AFTER THE SCENE
After the scene and aftercare is over, the adopted pet is under NO obligation to stay with their Adopter/s. They may go back up for adoption as many times as they want. Likewise, Adopters are welcome to adopt as many times as they want.
Unwanted possessiveness will not be tolerated. Remember, this is about having a good time and making new connections. Have fun with it! :)
