This is not quite your normal shop, as there are many things you can do here - and they're all free! You can adopt pets, donate your pets to be adopted out, or do some volunteer work to help out!
First of all, no matter what you're doing, you need to create your own thread. Please include in the topic description whether you intend to adopt, donate, or volunteer. It makes it easier for the staff to help you that way.
If a friend would like to join you, they're more than welcome to post in your thread. Otherwise, each roleplay is independent of the others.
Since Matthew is very busy with his job, he allows you to play with the pets on your own - under the careful surveillance of his Seeker.
(You can assume OOC that Matthew introduces you to the creature, then leaves. Your roleplay starts after he leaves. Please do not control Matthew's, the Assistant's, or the Seeker's actions directly.)
To adopt a creature, first you have to get to know it. Go ahead and make a thread to play with the creature. Make sure to bring some toys or treats! (Or you could borrow some of the old ones people have donated...)
Make sure to put the creature's ID number and Species in the bottom of your first post where staff can easily find it! Also, edit the word 'Done' into your title when you're ready to turn in your application.
In order for your adoption to be successful, you must meet a minimum bonding requirement as set by the APAA.
Volunteer work is great, isn't it? You get to help all of the abandoned pets have a better day. Whether you're cleaning out cages, feeding pets, or just spending some time with them, your volunteer work is sure to be appreciated.
Note: You may bring ONE of your own pets to help you out. It must be well trained or absolutely non-aggressive. Keep in mind that large and scary pets (and pets that are on fire!) will have a negative impact on the inhabitants of the APAA.
If you volunteer often, you might just earn a shiny badge! How nice.

Morgan: No one knows yet. But I did want to make it clear that the jar itself isn't used for lotine husbandry in any way. c:

Twilight-Claw: I'm only assuming that it does something similar like a Fungal Beast that infects a Leaf-scatter. (the one with moss and I think it was a pink flower growing on the head.)

Silver: I'll try it soon and we'll find out!

Silver: I don't think anyone knows yet!

Darky: What did the 'infection' do again?
Jun 5, 2020 4:14:43 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Thanks for this information, its really useful to know! <3

Morgan: The lolatic doesn't disappear after one use, and can be reused on the same lotine when it is allowed to 'infect' a lotine- to my knowledge.
Jun 5, 2020 1:41:37 GMT -6
Morgan: The only effect/thing that the jar can be used for is to open up into a lolatic. The jar itself has no use in lotine breedings.
Jun 5, 2020 1:39:52 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: and the jar is then gone, if with the creature I am more guessing with this the creature doesn't disappear and it has unlimited use.
Jun 5, 2020 0:17:55 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Something else I am wondering about with the Lotine breeding is whether one would use the jar the Lolatic comes from in the breeding, or actually the creature itself. I'm assuming with it if its the jar, then it gives people only one shot in a breeding,

Twilight-Claw: Then using it in my rps is definitely just for the sake of rp's and not for anything additional.

Renathan: Fish are unlimited use once bought though. c:

Renathan: There's no additional effect for adding a fish to a magical berry in a lotine breeding. Magical Berry is kinda it's own thing. Adding a fish for roleplay value shouldn't hurt, but it has no effect when used on a magical berry lotine breeding.

Twilight-Claw: be just for the sake of rp, and perhaps seeing if it might lent a bigger chance to multiple offspring with unique pattern. X3

Twilight-Claw: I think your right on it being unlimited use yeah, although.. *cough* I only found out a couple hours after I started writing that I had yet to buy the fish in question so used the one you could get for free as a replacement, it still was meant to mostly

Riku: From what I loosely understand about the fish is that it isn't one-use, whereas the berry is. I feel like there wouldn't be any consequence of 'using' the fish...which I'd think just ooc wouldn't be counted for whatever rolls or whatever it is that it uses
Jun 3, 2020 14:14:30 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Thanks for that piece of info Ren! <3 | But would it be allowed for the flavor of the rp if the berry wasn't filling enough for the Lotine?
Jun 1, 2020 6:09:21 GMT -6
Renathan: There is no need to double up on a fish and a magical berry (doesn't change the effect of the berry at all) in a lotine breeding.
Jun 1, 2020 6:02:21 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Does anyone know if it is possible to combine both a magical berry and a fish in a Lotine breeding? Or is you can only choose one of them? (right now writing a Lotine breeding)

Twilight-Claw: I am still interested in trading it for a green drake.
