The announcement was shown in Jamaa Journal Volume 181.

The Adoption Certificate is a feature for Pets that was introduced on September 15, 2016. Every pet owned by a Jammer will have a certificate about itself. A button to view the certificate appears next to the pet in the My Pets section of the Change Your Look menu, on the pet's trade icon, and next to the pet when previewed on Player Cards.



An example of an Adoption Certificate

Each certificate consists of a tan background with red borders. There is a red banner across the top of the certificate that reads "Certificate of Adoption" in white letters. The corners of the certificate have a swirling pattern in red and the sides have red stripes. The left side of the certificate has a red rectangle with an animated picture of the pet on it; below the picture is a red stripe that displays the pet's name in white letters. The right side of the certificate displays the adoption date and three attributes of the pet all in red letters. At the bottom of the right side, there is a blue ribbon with a pawprint on it.


Each certificate displays three attributes for the pet. These attributes are generated when the certificate is created and they cannot be modified by the player. Attributes do not affect any gameplay aspects other than the certificate.

  • If a pet was adopted before the certificates were introduced, the Adopted: section of the certificate will display "???" instead of a date.
  • Promotional Pets, such as the Pet Mouse, have a Rare badge. Rare Pet Phantoms also have this.
  • There is a glitch where the Pet does not have a favorite toy or food.
  • When the Adoption Certificate first came out, there was a glitch where a pet snake's favorite food would show up as "Snakes." Animal Jam, however, quickly fixed this.
  • When viewed from another Jammer's trade list, the pet inventory when adding to a trade, or the pet inventory when editing a den, the Adoption Certificate displays the type of pet instead of that particular pet's custom name.
