Animal Jam Adoption

Adoption can be a fun game for both “parents” and “children” in Animal Jam.  There are a lot of questions about adoption in Animal Jam so I’ll do my best to answer them in this post.  There is no official “Adopt” button or anything like that in the game, however it is easy to find players looking for adoption if you know where to look.

How to Get Adopted in Animal Jam

1. Use a small, cute animal as your character.  The bunny or the fox are good choices.

2. Dress your animal up like a baby: Wear a blanket, scarf, and other knitted items so you look like a baby.

3. Go to the Pillow Room in Jamaa Township.  This is the meeting area where most adoptions happen.  Try to find a busy server to play on so you have a better chance of getting adopted.

4. When you’re in the pillow room, say something like “Needs a mommy” or “I’m a happy baby”.  Just say something to let other Jammers know you are looking to get adopted.

5. Wait for a parent to come in and adopt you.  If there is no one else in the Pillow Room try a different server with more people, eventually you will find a parent.

6. After a parent approaches you, talk to them first to see if they will be a good parent.  If you want to be adopted by that player, be sure you add them to your buddy list so you won’t lose them.

7. That’s pretty much it!  Your parent will probably want you to come back to their den so you can start playing together as a family.  Just keep playing along and that’s all there is to getting adopted.


If you’re interested in being a parent and adopting a baby in Animal Jam, the process is similar to the steps above but is a little different.  Follow the guide below for how to become a parent in Animal Jam.

How to Adopt a Baby in Animal Jam

1. Dress your animal in a friendly, non-threatening way.  You don’t want to scare away your future children.

2. Make sure your den is ready for a new baby.  You’ll need somewhere to bring your child so make them a room at your den and decorate it for a baby.

3. Join a busy server.  The more players on the server, the better chance you have of finding a baby.

4. Go to the Pillow Room in Jamaa Township.  This is where you will find many babies waiting to be adopted.

5. Be nice to everyone in the Pillow Room even if you are not adopting them.  If other players see you being mean to people, they will not want you to adopt them.

6. Pick a baby from the Pillow Room and start talking with them.  If you think you are a good match for each other then adopt the baby.  Be sure to add them to your buddy list so you wont lose them!

7. After you’ve adopted your baby, bring them back to your den so they can get used to their new home.

8. That’s pretty much all there is to adopting a baby, the rest is up to you!  Take good care of your child or else they will run away.  It’s easy to find activities around Jamaa for the whole family!

  1. It’s a nice teen kid or pet like dog or cat. As dog i can be a black or golden lab named Lunar as a cat i can be a nice black cat named Nightmare or brown or grey tabby named (you can name me). My AJ name is Lunalovefelines i am a non member if you’re nice please please please buy me a membership.

    • I am just 11 years old and maybe i’ll never try how it is to be a member in AJ. So if you’re really nice buy me a membership or if you have a member account you don’t want anymore send me your password with a Jam-a-gram.

  2. Hi my username is mixenray144 I would like to be adopted in the pillow room add me to your buddt list and come to my den I also have a friend who would like to be adopted or adopt her username with no spaces is a j lover 2468 it is just that my tablet won’t let me type her username with no spaces.

  3. Please buddy me, I’m camikoala!
    I can adopt or BE adopted.
    Also please check out my den, it’s very natural. If you go, the Liza statue is like a Buddhist prayer alter. The bowl is for offerings. I have a small garden with tomatoes, and a lemonade stand for drinking. There is also a bunny statue. Inside I have lots of plants and a fireplace in my living area. The heart flowers outside are my favorite plants. I also have an eating area with a cup, jar, bowl, and bbowl of fruit on two towels; a sleeping area with a hammock, hanging plants, and rug; a “reading patio”; and a bathroom in the far upper right corner composed of two bamboo sheets.
    Even though I’m not a member (yet) I’ve been playing for two or three years so it took me a while to get all of this stuff.
    Happy playing, and don’t forget to buddy me @ camikoala!

  14. Can all you guys just stop arguing! Just have fun, jam on, and don’t care about diamonds! Just chill ppl!


  15. I understand about HOW to adopt now…but WHY do you adopt? Is there a specific reason? Is it maybe to have a closer friend or someone to talk to more often on AJ? and/or to get to know someone better? That’s the only ideas I have as to WHY you would “adopt” someone or why they would WANT to be adopted. UnLESS it’s maybe to get free “stuff” from their parents. ??

    • its fun to be adopted to me at least

    • It’s just a fun way to roleplay! These adoptions usually last only a little while because it’s fun to feel the thrill of adoption, whether you’re the mom/dad or the daughter/son!
      Oh yeah. have you ever noticed that when you put a keyboard key smiley on a comment, when you post it it’s a real yellow emoji? Cute XD 🙂
