There are 493 unique pet species!
In Neopia, even the Neopets have pets. They are called petpets and there are many different types. The player does not need to feed or care for the petpets, however, some petpets may eat items from the player’s inventory.
To do this, click your pet’s name in the yellow sidebar (or click Quick Ref). When this page loads, click on the petpet you want to name. A new page will appear and you can enter a name for your pet in the text field. Click the Rename button to update your petpet.
Removing a pet
You can remove your pet in Quick Ref if you have decided it no longer suits your pet or you want a new one. Click the Stop Playing With [Petpet’s Name] button and the petpet will be returned to your inventory.
How do I get rid of a pet? You can disown your Neopet by going to Pet Central and clicking the Pound link. This is the big picture with Uni and Techo on it. Click Disown and then click the Neopet you wish to give up.
Some people choose to complete the Petpet Lab map on their side accounts. You can zap any of your petpets with your daily zap, and you can zap the same petpet as many times as you like, even if it’s a bunch of soot!
On September 18, 2014 Neopets closed Petpet Park after it was purchased by JumpStart.
Instead, we take part of his name and flip it. “Neopet” becomes “Tepeon”, from which we can derive the nickname “Tep”. It’s short, it’s concise, it’s easy to remember. We keep it!
Visit the cancellation page at the Neopian Pound. This avatar was also available through the 2019 In A New Avatar Charity Corner benefit. You must click the button 5 times before your pet will leave.
Painting a petpet
You cannot paint petpets in your inventory. Visit the puddle, select the brush you want to use and click Paint this Petpet. Voila!
To go to Quick Ref, click on “Pet Central” and then on “Quick Ref”, or simply click on your Neopet’s name in the yellow sidebar. If you have given a petpet to one of your pets, it will appear under your Neopet.
Neopets has died a slow death over the last ten years. The game had a rough history: The original developers sold it to Viacom in 2005, which was then eventually sold to JumpStart in 2014. The result has been a massive turnover and radical restructuring of the people who make up the game’s development team.
You can currently have up to 20 Neopets per account: all accounts start with 6 pet slots.
You’re welcome to adopt these homeless Neopets, but since rare species are very popular, you may have to be quick! However, your account must be at least four months old to adopt any of these pets (excluding Grundos). Younger accounts cannot see rare species in the pound at all.
